Earlier this year, the Washington Circle Hotel’s Circle Bistro did a fantastic job hosting our group. For this reason, we are returning this month. This time, around we’re trading the restaurant space for the outdoor pool deck. Let’s not forget Washington Circle’s proximity to all those sexy State Department, IMF and OAS staffers.This month’s playlist will be provided by DJ MAJR of SHIFT. He’s putting together several hours of music as a sample of what you might hear at SHIFT. The next SHIFT is at Cobalt on Saturday, May 28.

See you at Circle Bistro!

Wax On, Wax Off,

Due to venue availability, Homo Hotel Happy Hour is coming a little early this month! Another local attraction is opening its doors to the hoards of HHHHers. This month, we’re going the world famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Free Admission! Come visit the brand new Presidents Gallery featuring a wax sculpture for every US President. Now is your chance to get that photo op with William Henry Harrison and see if you can fit your arms around Taft. Or, if that’s not your thing, there will be ample opportunity to get bodied with Beyonce or ruin a marriage with Angelina Jolie. Or…just enjoy the cocktails.

We’ll probably do the ticket thing again. I know it’s weird, but it really does cut down the lines.

See you soon!

More Info Brrrr,

It’s time for a warm and cozy venue. This month, we’re heading over to DC’s “West End”. It’s been over three years since HHHH was in Circle Bistro at the One Washington Circle Hotel. Back then, there were just a few dozen of us hanging out in the bar area.

This time, Circle Bistro is reserving the entire bar, lounge and restaurant for us. In addition to the main bar, there will be three other satellite bars. The main bar and one of the satellite bars will take both credit cards and cash while two of the satellite bars will be cash only. Having cash on hand is always helpful for quick and easy transactions.

Drink specials include $5 wine/domestic beer and a $6 specialty cocktail (ask your bartender). All prices DO NOT include gratuity.

One Washington Circle Hotel is just across Washington Circle from Foggy Bottom and just a 10 – 15 minute walk from Dupont Circle. Bundle up and meet me over at Circle Bistro.

Additional Notes:

The entrance for Circle Bistro is on New Hampshire Ave NW.

First come, first served valet parking will only be $5

Circle Bistro will offer Homo Hotel Happy Hour discount cards which we will have out on the bar that people can pick up and use for future visits to Circle Bistro (or our sister restaurant Notti Bianche).  The cards are valid from January 21st – June 21st 2011.  They offer 15% off at either restaurant for dining room seatings after 7:30pm

Circle Bistro will also be raffling off FIVE Prizes:

a.       A Chefs Table for Four with wine pairings at Circle Bistro

b.      Four $50 Lunch Gift Certificates to Circle Bistro
