A bar in Washington, D.C., just blocks from the Capitol is offering federal workers special $5 drinks every day during the potential partial government shutdown.


Capitol Lounge unveiled a new drink menu on Twitter on Friday, saying the drinks would be available at 12:01 a.m., when parts of the government are currently set to run out of funding.

The $5 drinks include “Nothing Really Mattis,” an ode to outgoing Defense Secretary James MattisJames Norman MattisFed chief issues stark warning to Congress on deficits Why US democracy support matters Hillicon Valley: DOJ indicts four Chinese military officers over Equifax hack | Amazon seeks Trump deposition in 'war cloud' lawsuit | Inside Trump's budget | Republican proposes FTC overhaul MORE, and “Mexico Will Pay For This,” a reference to President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Memo: Biden seeks revival in South Carolina Congress eyes billion to billion to combat coronavirus Sanders makes the case against Biden ahead of SC primary MORE’s claim that Mexico will pay for a border wall.

The fight over border wall funding is threatening funding deals for multiple federal departments as Trump digs in on his demand for billions of dollars toward the southern border project.

The drink specials are only available to federal employees with an ID badge. 

This is at least the second instance the Capitol Lounge has taken advantage of a possible government shutdown. Earlier this year, the bar offered up similar specials.

Other play-on-word drinks include the “Border Wall Banger” and “Stephen Miller’s Hair Affair."
