It was cooling off ever so slowly one recent Friday evening following a stiflingly hot day. I wanted to find an invigorating spot, and Executive Order Bar & Lounge, with its unique American history theme, was high on my list of institutions to try out. 

Perusing the menu, I was intrigued by the Copperhead. It contained Hangar One lime vodka, fresh lime juice, and ginger beer shaken to perfection. My choice soon proved very rewarding. The drink’s strong lime component combined refreshingly with the superb ginger beer and made for a very tasty drink indeed. 

I then ordered some devilled eggs and, sipping my tipple, took in the stately yet comfortable atmosphere of the place. Pump-up jams played; hits from the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Usher, and a Tribe Called Quest increased my pleasure. In no time, my plate of eggs arrived, devilled to perfection. They were freshly made and savory, with a dash of mustard; devilishly scrumptious. They were beautiful to look at too. 


Illuminated green lampshades of table lamps studded the back area, highlighting the rich green of the billiards table. With its yummy food and delicious cocktails, its sumptuous luster and refreshing attitude, this bar certainly succeeds in whisking its patrons away from the 21st Century to a bygone day. A time out of time; a refreshing dream.

Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, signed a total of 1,081 Executive Orders into effect. This may sound like a great many, but his fifth cousin, F.D.R. (the 32nd president to hold office), signed a whopping 3,721. Woodrow Wilson, another wartime president, penned 1,803. Gotta love a grasping executive branch! Especially when it tastes so good.
