As everyone knows, rumors propagate where drinkers congregate, and Capitol Hill's longstanding Comet Tavern is no exception. From grimly enchanted tributes to the dead (an unmarked barstool is alleged to harbor the cremains of a loyal patron), to testaments of forgotten celebrities (Phil Collins is said to be responsible for a particularly lewd table carving), the Comet's gossip dazzles and delights. But for those in search of facts, and a hard drink, the rumors are absolutely true: a recent addition of liquor now complements the already-lengthy beer list. Happy hour features $3.25 micros (Maritime, Mac & Jack's, Sierra Nevada), $2 domestic pints (Pabst, Labatt), and $6 pitchers. Also, $1 transforms any well drink into a double.
