Thomas Foolery, a Washington, D.C. bar that opened on July 17, has a quirky menu with a “foolish” list of rules to match. Follow the rules, and you could get discounts on drinks.
For all of those nostalgic for the ‘90s, dressing up like Carlton from "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and doing the running man gets you 10 percent off any item. Playing a game of plinko determines the price of your Smirnoff Ice, which could range from $1 to $5. If you can rank your selection of four red or white wines in order of least to most expensive, you get $2 off. "Angry hour" is the bar’s version of happy hour, and customers only qualify if they order in angry voices. Beer and soda floats are made from any of the 40 beers or 15 specialty sodas.
These deals, plus Wii Mario Cart, hopscotch painted on the floor, stopwatches in the restroom, and more are just some of the reasons why this new venue is unique. The success of this bar will be no contest.
