Here’s the latest on how Clyde’s Restaurant Group is here to serve us:

 

Mother’s Day

Family-style meals (for 2-3 or 4-5 people) are now available to order for curbside pickup at all Clyde’s, Old Ebbitt Grill, and The Hamilton. 

 

Menu options include traditional favorites like ham, beef tenderloin, and crab cakes to brunch items like quiche with yogurt parfait and coffee cake. Drink kits, specially priced wines, additional side dishes, and a flower bouquet are also available for purchase. 

All orders come with a complimentary blank Mother’s Day card that can be filled out at home. Limit your trips out and stay safe. Advance orders only, orders must be placed by May 6th.

Lobster

Lobster special arrived early this year. All locations have 1 ¼ pound lobsters from Douty Brothers in Maine for $21.99 available daily for carryout, while supplies last.

 

Market Pantry

Menus now feature household items such as flour, active yeast, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizer—a great way to add an item or two to your lunch or dinner menu. Again, limit your trips out and stay safe.

Made with Grace

Handmade, reusable, and washable masks are now available for purchase from our Market Pantry. 100% of the proceeds go the Clyde’s Restaurant Employee Assistance Fund. Eight-year-old Gracie started sewing masks for Clyde’s employees. She kept at it and put masks out on a table outside our house in NW DC free for neighbors. Grace later enlisted the help of her friend, seven-year-old Bella Barongan (daughter of CRG VP of HR), and is now selling the masks online (via Clyde’s carryout). They sell out quickly and are restocked each Monday. The girls have raised over $4,000 for the fund so far. Fabric donations are now coming in from all around the Clyde’s family with mothers, aunts, and godmothers of Clyde’s employees all helping out.

Food It Forward

Since launching their meal program in late-March, they have served over 14,000 meals. The program has expanded to Maryland and Virginia and is now providing meals to frontline healthcare workers in addition to communities in need.

 

Virtual Happy Hours

A big part of their saloon culture is enjoying live music. Most of their restaurants offer free live music throughout the week. They continue to support local musicians and try to virtually get together with our temporarily laid-off employees and regulars with virtual happy hours. The Hamilton Loft, Clyde’s, and The Tombs are all streaming free music on Facebook or Instagram.

A Silver Lining to a Postponed Wedding at The Fairmont

April 14, 2020

Nadia Darwish and Subhi Al’Aref were planning to get married at Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown on Saturday, April 11th, 2020.  Due to Covid 19, they had to postpone their nuptials at the Fairmont until September. 

 

As a surprise for his fiancé, Subhi arranged an evening for a “First Dance” with the hotel’s Director of catering Bob Mikolitch and other hotel staff on April 11th 

The Couple spent the evening in the Fairmont’s beautiful Colonnade Room.  They danced pre-recorded music, enjoyed mocktails and cupcakes.  They were dressed for the occasion on what was supposed to be the original date of their wedding.  The Fairmont looks forward to welcoming them back on September 19th for their actual wedding.

Stay Fit Georgetown

March 31, 2020

While we’re home, more than ever, we need a healthy way to channel our energy. Many of Georgetown’s fitness studios are offering virtual classes during COVID-19. 

We can also support these businesses by shopping online for merchandise or purchasing gift cards.

 

The Georgetown BID has a list of participating studios here.
