From our friends at Café and Bar Dupont...

A Passport to Refreshment

Café Dupont & Bar Dupont Go Global This May

WHAT:  A celebration of the diversity of flavor & character in beverages from around the world. Café and Bar Dupont Assistant F&B Manager, Shane Caldwell has selected a list of 20 outstanding wines, beers & spirits that will be featured as part of a four week enter-to-win contest. Guests will receive custom passports on their first visit, earning stamps for each drink enjoyed in May. Every passport with ten stamps will be entered in a drawing to win a two night stay at the Dupont Circle Hotel! Pick up a round for friends and every drink counts.
