Brick and Mortar in Washington DC

December 31, 2015

After an exciting and very fun evening with the Neo-Futurists at the Woolly Mammoth watching (and participating in) “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind,” we headed out for an after theater cocktail or two.



Our attempt to drop in at barmini was thwarted by their pretentious attitude. Fuck that place.

Fortunately, that meant we ended up at Brick and Mortar for a stellar post show time. We were served (mostly) by Marvin Zaldana who made some classics, played around with a drink or two of ours, and made two cocktails of particular note.

Fall Manhattan
2 oz Rye (Rittenhouse 100)
.5 oz dry port wine
several dashes of angostura
some drops of fresh lemon juice

Modern Vespa
1 oz vodka (pittsburgh’s Boyd and Blair)
1 oz dry gin (london style)
.5 oz cocchi americano
3 drops orange bitters
splash of fresh ginger beer (fever tree)

As you can see, Brick and Mortar has strong roots in great cocktails from the old days with interesting little twists. Delightful.

We were joined by two living neo-futurists.

Can you spot the actors?
