In a gesture that surely would have even had Honest Abe himself performing a pas de deux
, Lincoln Restaurant welcomed dozens of The Washington Ballet
’s (TWB) younger supporters into its two ‘handcrafted’ rear dining rooms, for a special fundraising happy hour event yesterday evening.
Members of TWB’s Jete Society
sipped on the inviting venue’s carefully curated cocktails, including a particularly popular Pisco Sour drink special, while sampling from porcelain platters brimming with complimentary small bites – all the while mingling with like-minded dance devotees.
