Tonight in D.C.: March Madness, happy hour and a good cause

WASHINGTON — What more could one want on the day after St. Patrick’s and the start of March Madness, as health care reform legislation hurtles toward an all-or-nothing weekend vote, than watching basketball at an Irish pub with your favorite MinnPost D.C. correspondent?

Well, that last bit might not be much of a draw, but hopefully you’ll look past it for a good cause.

The March Goodness campaign that you’ve no-doubt heard about already is holding a kickoff happy hour at my favorite Washington pub — Fado. It’s just off the Gallery Place/Chinatown/Verizon Center Metro stop, conveniently located across the street from Chinatown’s Friendship gate.

If you’re in the D.C. area, why not stop by and say hi? I’ll be the big guy by the bar with a hard cider in hand.
