Come Friday you can drink like a fish at Luke’s Lobster Georgetown. Co-owner Ben Conniff says the shop will offer Maine microbrews on tap, wines from the Finger Lakes region, and two “seafaring cocktails.”
The battle to serve booze in G-town hasn’t been an easy one for the lobster chain. A moratorium on liquor licenses in the neighborhood made getting one impossible for two years. When the chance to apply for a limited number came about, Conniff slept on the sidewalk outside the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.
The fruits of that labor come in the form of $6 brews, $9 wines, and $10 cocktails including a Dark and Stormy and a vodka-based Salty Dog. The team is also extending a drink-and-roll combo with beers for $3 and the other two options for $5, and plans to begin offering trivia and Hoya basketball game nights.
