Steve Kerrigan for Congress 2018

Wednesday, December 6th

One of Duplex Diner's favorite regulars is running for Congress! Please grab a drink and show support. Steve Kerrigan is a native of Lancaster, MA in the Third District, and has dedicated his life to public service from local government to the State House and the halls of Congress. In 2014, Steve was the Democratic nominee for Lt. Governor of Massachusetts, earning more than 220,000 votes throughout the Commonwealth. His career in government and service stretches nearly three decades. Steve and his husband Jacob live in Lancaster. Make a contribution today!



Miss Adams Morgan Happy Hour

Friday, December 15th 7 PM – 9 PM

It happens every year, as predictable as the tides -- the old Miss Adams Morgan retires, and a new one rises form the ashes to take her place; metaphorically speaking, of course.

We said farewell to 2017's Miss Amanda LaMancha and we welcome Miss Adams Morgan 2018 -- Miss New York, Eva Von Beaverhausen!

If you missed her taking the crown at the pageant, come by and say hello at her December 15th Happy Hour! It's fun and we'll be serving up Beaver Squeezes (a cocktail sensation named in her honor) all night! Please join the Dupont Social Club and Miss Adams Morgan XXX in ushering in the Reign of Unity. Whether you are a member of the DSC, interested in becoming a member, or just plain love drag this is the place for you!



Duplex Diner's Annual Janky Sweater Party!

Friday, December 15th, 9 PM – 2 AM

For the fifth year in a row, Duplex Diner (your favorite bar) and DC supporters of the Trevor Project (the leading organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth) are joining forces on an event that promises to be fun, good for your soul, and full of ridiculous sweaters. Yes, that's right! It's time to pull out that hideous cardigan or pullover, do something good for our community, and dance the night away! Special host: Goldie Grigio! Music courtesy of DJs Khelan Bhatia and Adam Koussari-Amin of BreakfastClub and previous Janky Sweater bashes!

There's no cover for this soiree, but a $10 donation to Trevor would be mighty swell! 'Tis the season for giving after all! Oh, and you get a champagne cocktail courtesy of Duplex with your donation.

Party starts at 9 PM and ends when we take our sweaters off!

Happy Holidays from our Duplex Family to Yours!

We wish everyone a wonderful and joyous Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!
