Flight Of The Wizards

Spurs 93, Wizards 101

The Wizards finally did it! They beat the Spurs. They haven't done that since 2005! And we finally did it too! We finally checked out Flight Wine Bar!

The Wiz Happy Hour crew braved the darkside of Verizon center for the second home game in a row and it was worth it yet again. Flight is a very relaxing atmosphere and a great place to grab a drink before the game. We enjoyed some great craft beer on special and talked about what the Wizards needed to do to beat the Spurs.

Flight's happy hour is great because it lasts every day (closed on Sunday). Saturday happy hour is not uncommon around Verizon Center, but this is one of the nicer places with one. It runs from 4pm-7pm, but on Monday night it lasts all night long. It also gives you a major discount from regular prices which is a great way to sample the atmosphere and food for a later date.

Three Baltimore Beer Works Casks

Flight features a rotating/seasonal selection of draft beers, and we tried them all. Currently your choices are Port City Optimal Wit (Alexandria, VA), Lagunitas IPA (CA), Baltimore Beer Works Cask (MD), and Eggenberg Hopkenfonig Pilsner (Austria). They all run for $5 during happy hour.
The Cask was our favorite at 8% ABV, it was really warming and great for the atmosphere.

We don't mean to ignore the amazing wine selection and the flights of wine that they have, but we mostly focus on beer and items on special at Wiz Happy Hour. They do have a red and a white for $7.

Food specials are also available ($5-$7) and looked amazing. Unfortunately we forgot to order anything! We'll have to go back and try some of the happy hour food items which include duck sliders, steak sliders, and even chocolate bon bons (selections and prices pictured above).

It was a lot of fun hanging out for an hour here before the game. We met Swati, one of the owners and she was great. The bartenders are great as well. I'd definitely come back (these places with no TV are actually pretty cool pregame). Hopefully next time you can join us! See you out there and Go Wiz!
