Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
Guest Host: Jen Golbeck
What’s the most “D.C.” drink? With so many self-proclaimed “workaholics,” maybe a cocktail with coffee is most fitting. Or perhaps it’s the Rickey, which City Council proclaimed as the city’s official drink in 2011 because of its local origin. The Daiquiri, on the other hand, doesn’t give off an obvious Washington vibe. But, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have local roots. Two booze enthusiasts join us to discuss the cocktail, its role in D.C. and what it says about drinking in the nation’s capital.
