    I don’t know that the bar at Ping Pong is overlooked. I have found it consistently hard to get a seat at the bar there. It’s super popular and based on the bar appetizers alone is a great place for Happy Hour. Maybe just cocktail aficionados haven’t been talking it up.

  2. PPDS changed their cocktail menu since their opening. they removed the Tennessee Tingle which in and of itself was worth tapping a random stranger on the shoulder and asking them, “Have you tried this?” it was a blend of Jack Daniel’s, Cointreau, lime juice, cola product, and a Szechuan bud. nibble on the bud and you tasted something like you’ve never tasted before. every nibble was a different experience feeling just a little like when you were a kid and stuck your tongue on a 9 V battery, but so much more dampened that it felt kind of good instead of electrifying. it gave the drink an unusual zest to it. alas, it is no longer available at PPDS. but, the bar is still just fine there.

    WaPo did an article on the szechuan bud worth reading.

    The drinks are fine (albeit not particularly strong) and a good deal at HH. When the price doubles outside of HH, I can think of several places in the Chinatown/MVT area I’d rather do my drinking at.
