Forget everything you thought you knew about Acre 121. The longtime Columbia Heights bar/restaurant/music venue recently unveiled a ridiculously scrumptious new food and cocktail menu worth every last calorie. (Trust us.) From Cognac cocktails to veggie flatbread with seared okra —  this place is so much more than beer and low country BBQ. Don’t believe me?  Stop by Acre 121 from October 21-25 for a tasting FEAST and sample three new entrees for just $35. In the meantime, check out these super sweet shots of the new menu items.. and try not to drool while doing so.
