Bartenders blow the whistle
Oct 8, 2013
Bartenders close to the capitol have told local reporters that members of Congress are keeping themselves busy during the government shutdown by partying and drinking, and generally having a great big knees up.
“I don’t think the public would be happy to know that they are actually enjoying this time.” one bartender at Hawk and Dove bar on Pennsylvania Avenue told WUSA9 News.
The barman added that members of Congress have been “cutting loose” all week, and started off with a party on the first night of the shutdown.
“There was a private party upstairs with a few Congress people and senators here that night.” the bartender stated.

I'm not over exaggerating when I say I can smell the booze wafting from members as they walk off the floor.
