Beer and wings for my birthday....any ideas?

Hey y'all! I'm looking for a fun place to spend my evening. Instead of getting dolled up I was thinking beer, wings, and a good atmosphere. Any ideas?

Metro accessible would be awesome!

  1. Not overly metro accessible but Bungalow Billiards in Shirlington would fit the bill to a T.

    1. Not sure what your idea of "good atmosphere" is. I like Duffy's near U Street metro as a low key, divey irish pub with relatively cheap beer Oh and they have pretty awesome wings.

      1. Hard Times Cafe in Bethesda on Del Ray Avenue - great wings and multiple beer taps serving standard domestics and some excellent microbrews (Harpoon IPA, Clipper City, and Sierra Nevada).

        Their wings are deep fried, finshed of on a grill after being sauced, and finished with a shake of spicy southwest seasoning. Served with blue cheese or ranch dressing.

        I would say it's about a 15 minute walk from Metro's NIH stop, but it's right across the street from a huge county parking garage (metered except Saturday and Sunday).

          Second hard times. You can also get them grilled with dry rub and sauce on the side. The chile lime wings are very good.

        2. Thirsty Bernie's in Arlington, SE corner of Glebe and Lee Hwy.
