Rickey Plaque

On Sunday we celebrated the Rickey being recognized as D.C.’s native cocktail with a party so swanky it was featured in the Washington Post’s Style Section. Our guest of honor Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton unveiled a plaque commemorating the birthplace of the Rickey at the former site of Shoomaker’s now the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Ave. She went on to mention our accomplishment on the floor of Congress and enter it in the Congressional Record.
