3rd Annual Toast to Poe

  • Mockingbird Hill 1843 7th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Sherry pairs well with pretty much everything, even classic horror tales. The Cask of Amontillado, one of Edgar Allen Poe’s stories about a man getting walled in with a cask of Amontillado sherry, is close to our hearts for obvious reasons (although we can think of worse fates than being locked up with a whole cask of sherry).

We're celebrating Halloween at Mockingbird Hill by honoring the king of macabre, Poe, with $6 Alexandro Amontillado sherry all night, and 28 Sherries Later, our sherried twist on the classic Zombie cocktail. We’ll also have a toast to Edgar Allen Poe, including an adaptation of The Cask of Amontillado by director/actress Kerry McGee of We Happy Few Productions at 7 p.m. Stop in early to pre-game Halloween with ravens, bloodied hearts and plenty of sherry.
