WHERE: Pitchers DC / A League of Her Own (2317 18th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009)

In the last year, DC saw the two largest gay clubs/bars close down (Town and Cobalt) to make room for new Condos. We are very thankful to our friends at Pitchers who are letting us take over their bar. Pitchers is a multi-bar establishment in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC. It consists of two bars with Patios on the top floors, a dance floor, a Lesbian/Queer space (A League of Her Own), and a small restaurant on the first floor. We look forward to seeing you all there!
