Have you been to Marx Cafe in Mount Pleasant? They've been doing interesting DJ nights for ages. Way back in 2006 when I was an intern at DC Style magazine, I wrote an article about a monthly reggae night at Marx Cafe. To be honest, venturing up to Mount Pleasant was a little scary for a sheltered Fairfax kid like me - I thought this was an adventure. Now flash forward to 2012 and I live around the corner from Marx Cafe. And this sign in their window intrigued me.
First of all, the $5 (+.50 rounded up for inflation) beer and whiskey shot is a deal. Fits the Outlaws theme. And honky tonk sounds like a good time. So here's my new feature idea: I'll pick cute outfits to wear to various DJ nights around town. And since Isabel Marant says that Western shirts are cool, we gotta wear a Western shirt to honky tonk night! Not cowboy boots, I just can't go there. These little heeled booties keep it sharp. So what do you think? A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll with the skinny jeans, I hope.
