Happy Monday: Acadiana (DC)

[ 0 ] February 22, 2010 |

Happy Monday!! If you’re from New Orleans, now is a good time to be home sick. With the Saints taking the Super Bowl 2010 and Mardi Gras wrapping up last Tuesday, New Orleans has been having the party of a lifetime over the past couple of weeks. Wish we could have been there and if you’re from New Orleans, we know you do too. Thanks to Acadiana for easing the home sick blues for New Orleans natives with its new “Big Easy” Happy Hour. Acadiana is known for its creole cuisine and has received the stamp of approval from a lot of New Orleans natives within the District.

The “Big Easy” happy hour includes $5 cocktails, 12 oz. Draft Beer is $4 and half-priced bar food menu (*includes 14 different appetizers from the bar menu). We look forward to crispy fried oysters and fried green tomatoes after a long day of work. Since Bourbon Street is not an option for us this week, we’ll at least satisfy our weary palate with some local creole fare…

901 New York Avenue, N.W.
Washington, DC 20001
