D.C.’s underground scene… literally – Feb. 18, 2018

Hosted by David and Nycci Nellis. On today’s show:

• Blue Star Families is an organization whose mission is to bridge the gap between civilian and military communities. The Neighbors Celebration honors civilians that go above and beyond the call of duty to provide assistance for the betterment of our servicemen and women. The event welcomes a select group of D.C. and military chefs that join forces in the kitchen. Jennifer Medeiros and Sal Khan are in to tell us all about it;

• Did you know that D.C.’s arts space in the old trolley tunnels beneath Dupont Circle is currently being used for TBD Immersive’s new theatrical production “Cabaret Rising: One Nation Underground?” The show allows audience members to interact with characters, move freely exploring the space, solve puzzles and quests, and even affect the plot. Strother Gaines (director/artistic director) and Jenny Splitter (playwright) all are in to tell us about it;
• Bacardi Legacy is a global cocktail competition launched as an hommage to signature, Bacardi rums. French Scott Marshall is a head bartender at Five To One, recently named by Zagat as one of the “hottest” new bars in D.C., and he’s competing! We’ll hear all about going head-to-head with mixologists the world over to win the coveted Bacardi Legacy competition;


• You all know about The Wharf. It’s hot. And one of the hottest places there is Whiskey Charlie, the rooftop cocktail lounge perched atop the Canopy Washington DC at The Wharf.
Bartender Donnavon Lalputan is in to treat us to some of his signature concoctions.
