Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

#13 Old Ebbitt Grill (Washington D.C.)

The oldest saloon in Washington, D.C. (it opened in 1856 and has served most U.S. presidents, beginning with Ulysses S. Grant, though it has moved several times — most recently in 1983), is a legendary watering hole less than one block from the White House. Old Ebbitt Grill bartenders can make nearly any cocktail, but there are a dozen seasonal cocktails on offer, too, like the signature Bloody Maryland. It’s the bar’s take on the classic bloody mary, with the addition of a jumbo shrimp and a glass rimmed with Old Bay seasoning. The deep mahogany bar is a sight to behold: A beautiful antique stein collection runs along the top, punctuated by animal-head trophies purportedly bagged by Teddy Roosevelt. Try the oysters; there is an oyster happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily and again from 11 p.m. until close.
