Beer/wine at lunch - what's up w/ DC????????

Rosco | Aug 25, 2003 01:09 PM

I've noticed that in DC you never see people having wine or beer with lunch. This is in marked contrast with every other major city in the US (not to mention Europe). I constantly see business people eating dishes that cry out for a glass of red or white or even beer (pizza or soft-shells). Yet they either order soda pop or the inevitable iced tea to accompany their cuisine. My question is: WHY??? Also, was it any different back when democrats ruled???
