Say it ain't so...

According to this article in the Washington Examiner, the bar at the Mayflower Hotel is closing. Harry Truman must be spinning in his grave. He liked the Mayflower so much he called it Washington's second-best address. Personally, I think he underrated it a bit. I've had some, uh, smashing times at the Mayflower bar. Accidentally left a green Phillies hat there once. Never got it back. Man, I loved that hat. The bartender, Cambodian-born Sam, is one of the best. As Harry would put it, he makes a damn good drink. Farewell, Mayflower bar. You will not be forgotten. Though most of memories of you are hazy...
