Eastern Market, Capitol Hill

For $25, the bottomless menu including a single mimosa option is a bit disappointing, but fortunately the freshly made pitchers don't lack for champagne.
The menu's largely an exercise in putting shrimp where chicken usually resides (who's up for some shrimp and waffles?), but who are we to turn down a brunch po boy?
Although the kitchen forgot about one of our meals, our server wisely allocated a pitcher per every two people, and was quite willing to keep supplying them until we left our table, far after the allotted time.
The real action's apparently on the more lively second floor, but as the only attendees on the ground level, we dined comfortably by the open-air patio, festooned by just-the-right-side-of-tacky dockside decor.
For a brunch spot, the mimosas were disappointing, but the cocktail options are aplenty and delicious, with a bourbon selection providing a rare opportunity to minimize the sugar.
The classics are on offer, but it's the PBR and brewdrivers that really sets the tone, and at $26 for the bottomless option and an entree, sometimes it pays to brunch at a dive bar.
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
