For especially nostalgic crowds of video-game enthusiasts, the brand-new Georgetown Liquor Company bar/retro-gaming memorial features vintage arcade machines (of the standard-upright and cocktail-table varieties), a series of assorted Atari and Nintendo consoles, and a chillingly extensive collection of accompanying cartridges. From behind the bar, the two-pronged happy hour (4—7 pm, 11 pm—close) brings discount micro drafts ($3 Blind Pig, Rogue, and Mothership Wit), specialty drinks ($6 mint juleps and fresh peach martinis), and well cocktails ($2.50 each). As for food: Happy hours bring $1 off all appetizers on the entirely vegetarian menu. (Try the baked polenta.) Sunday, July 15, GLC presents a Stanley Kubrick double feature, with Dr. Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange on the bar's plasma-screen TV starting at 8:00 p.m. (Georgetown Liquor Company, 5501-B Airport Way S, 763-6764. Happy hour Mon-Fri 4—7 pm, Sun—Thurs 11 pm—close.)
