You didn’t start here, but after a pretty outrageous pregame and at least one failed red rover challenge on the streets of Washington, this is where you ended up.

This dive bar with a, let’s just call it "questionable", crowd houses Downtown’s best kept secret. And that, frenemies, is the Ray Charles Shot. Order one and owner Sunny will have you close your eyes and throw three ice cubes at the shelf of, let’s just call them "questionable", liquors. Whatever three bottles you hit, that’s what you’re drinking tonight. Just pray one of them’s not 99 Bananas.
