Bars across U.S. opening early for James Comey testimony

Here are some of the establishments serving up an early round of beverages during Thursday's Hill hearing:

Washington, DC
Shaw's Tavern

The bar in Washington, D.C.'s Shaw neighborhood is serving Russian vodka cocktails and an "FBI breakfast" bright and early at 9:30 am for their "Comey Hearing Covefe" event where the bar will broadcast the hearing. Shaw's Tavern General Manager Rob Heim told CBS News, "We have always had watch parties for debate nights and on election nights -- but this will certainly be our first watch party for a congressional hearing."

Drink specials: Russian vodka cocktails

The Capitol Hill pub will open at 9:30 a.m. and will buy a round of drinks for the house every time President Trump issues a tweet on the hearing, offering the generous special until Comey's testimony ends.

West Coast establishments plan to open substantially earlier than East Coast bars, since the hearing's 10 a.m. ET start team translates into 7 a.m. PT. Bars like Ace's, Gino and Carlo's Tavern and Clooney's Pub will have their TVs tuned to the testimony.

Houston, Texas
Axelrad

The bar will be opening its doors promptly at 8:45 a.m. for early morning beers and friendly debate at their "SUPER BOWL OF Washington" event. While the event boasts a whopping 120 RSVP's and 906 "interested" attendees on Facebook, Axelrad partners Adam Brackman, Monte Large, and Jeff Kaplan say this is far from their first rodeo.

"Axelrad has set out to activate the community and be an advocate for causes that align with our values. We have hosted watch parties for all debates where over a thousand people showed up, organized an event with the ACLU that featured music and musicians from countries listed on the travel ban and donate to causes. Throughout the election, we had a voter registration booth on site to encourage young Houstonians too be more active and engage in politics. Around 500 people registered to vote!"


The partners added, "We see ourselves doing our part to further the engagement of younger people who have not typically been engaged in politics, and acting as a community gathering place from people of all walks of life. We welcome people no matter what their political beliefs, but want to encourage people to be more engaged in our community."

Specialty drinks: "Impeachmint", "Bad hombre", "Paid Protester" and "Frozen Covfefe"
