Jun 3, 2012 —  Washington, DC may appear to be all about politics, but the nation’s capital is also home to a huge population of sports lovers who take their love of the game a lot more seriously than politicians seem to take their election pledges.

The Redskins are by far DC’s most loved team – sports bars are blanketed with burgundy and gold on NFL Sundays – and when the CapitalsWizards, or Hoyas take over the Verizon Center, the streets around Penn Quarter explode with dedicated fans cramming into nearby watering holes.

The spacious East Potomac Park and its multiple golf courses and tennis courts is a quick ride from Downtown, and even The National Mall is a perfect spot to toss the ball around. Add to all that a sick Happy Hour scene, fueled in large part by the strict 9-to-5 federal employee work day, and it’s clear that legislators also know how to let loose. As if that weren’t enough, raucous neighborhoods like Adams Morgan have made rowdy barhopping an art form, while upper class residents in Georgetown ditch their pedigree and show the high-end district how to party it up Hoya-style.

Couple of recommendations - try the Mason Inn in Glover Park if you are an SEC football fan. Its the home of Georgia, USC and ole miss alumni for watching games. Buffalo Billiards has more than 60 hd flat screens and constantly has drink specials if you are in the DuPont circle area.
