A 14th Street NW bar will celebrate the 116th birthday of Earnest Hemingway the way the famous writer might have.
Bar Pilar, located at 1833 14th Street NW, will serve a special menu of Hemingway’s favorite meals and libations tonight starting at 5 p.m.
According to Pilar’s menu, Hemingway enjoyed noshing on pickled mushrooms, chilled cucumber soup, lobster salad and rabbit stew.
Bartenders will pour five different tropical and rum-based cocktails such as the “Hemingway Daiquiri,” an absinthe-based drink called “Death in the Afternoon” and two different rum slushies.
Is this really what Hemingway liked to eat and drink?
“Hemingway once said, ‘The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them,'” said Melissa Gold, a PR rep for Bar Pilar, in an e-mail. “Trust us.”
Bar Pilar will also screen movies based on Hemingway novels on both of its floors.
