Chai-vy and Cohen-y Hanukkah Bar: Bar Mitzvah @ Ivy and Coney

Ivy and Coney, DC’s premier baseball bar, is proud to announce the third annual Chai-vy and Cohen-y Hanukkah Bar: Bar Mitzvah. The Manischewitz shall flow, the dreidels shall spin and fun will be had by all. Twenty years before everyone’s favorite wood craftsman was turning water into rosé, he was officially becoming a man by having his Bar Mitzvah. This year’s theme exemplifies the joy (and awkwardness) of these forgotten festivities. Decked out to look like your local JCC disco party, Bar Mitzvah will get you into the spirit to dance the hora AND the electric slide. To put the Mitzvah in Bar Mitzvah, they’ll be donating all proceeds from the sale of Manischewitz products to HIAS and hosting a holiday fundraiser for their Shaw neighbor, Bread for the City. So, while you’re stuffing your shayna punim with food and drink, it’ll all be for a great cause. Please click here for more information.
