It's NFL Playoff season and that has local bars hopping. With so many people in the area who are transplanted to D.C. for work, the District has developed its own football subculture.
Saturday night hundreds of rowdy Pittsburgh Steelers fans took over the Pour House. At least one Baltimore Ravens fan braved the Steelers crowd to watch the match, but Eric Jones said he wasn't going to risk cheering loudly for his squad.
"No sir. I'm not crazy," Jones says.
Later in the evening, the Hawk 'n' Dove became a sea of green and yellow as the Green Bay Packers drew their usual large crowd. And Saturday morning, Union Pub will be painted orange and blue as hundreds of fans gather to cheer on the Chicago Bears.
These local bars see their sales spike during the football season as teams take over their establishments for three hours each week. The only complaint is that tips go way down when the local team loses, especially now that it's the playoffs and a loss is definitive.
