July’s DC Food Blogger Happy Hour at the Passenger: July 7 with cameo food trucks.

It’s that time again … for our DC Food Blogger Happy Hour. The next one will be July 7th at the Passenger. Here’s the skinny on the venue.

The Passenger, the most recent project of Mixologist brothers Tom and Derek Brown, with a combined 40 years experience have shaken and stirred at the best places in D.C., including Komi, Citronelle, Palena, Cordorouy and of course, the Gibson. The Passenger that opened in November of last year has become a cool watering hole while remaining true to D.C.’s history. The space that is now the Passenger was once “the Warehouse” co-owned by Paul Ruppert, (also a partner in the Passenger), dates back to 1890 and once was home to Ruppert Hardware, a fixture in D.C. for nearly 100 years.  With the opening of the Columbia Room, they are providing a cocktail experience that you might only get in New York Japanese style. The Going out Gurus reported that Derek  said that the Columbia Room will be a “cocktail club and laboratory bar,” where he’ll lead small classes and offer a couple of seatings a night for customers who want “a different level” of interaction with a bartender as he makes their drinks. “I was really inspired by Japanese bars,” he says. “I like that level of service for people who are really into their cocktails.”

Sound like a good time? Good! Now join the best and brightest of DC Food Bloggers on Wednesday, July 7th at the Passenger. In addition, DC’s hippest food trucks will be making a cameo appearance so we can experience some street food.

Thrifty DC Cook is the “hostess with the mostess” this month, so make sure to say hello to Sylvie when you arrive.  She’s one of the coolest, nicest bloggers I’ve met in DC .  RSVP on the food blogger facebook site and don’t forget to become a fan.

See you there.
