Fans who want to take a swing at Redskins owner Dan Snyder can get their chance Friday night at Madam’s Organ. The popular Adams Morgan bar will be hosting an anti-Snyder party featuring a 4-foot-tall Dan Snyder piñata.
The bar will also be carving up an “anatomically correct nude Daniel Snyder” cake.
The purpose of the event, according to bar owner Bill Duggan, is to bring more attention to Snyder’s behavior and his lawsuit against City Paper.
"I would hope that [Snyder] would see the light and say, 'This is stupid, why alienate people even more?' " Duggan told TBD.
Bashing a Dan Snyder piñata isn’t likely to make Snyder "see the light," and his frivolous lawsuit has become something of a joke to everyone but the City Paper, who is being forced to defend itself in a very expensive battle. The proceeds from the Madam’s Organ event will be donated to the paper’s legal defense fund.
Aside from the opportunity to bash a piñata and eat a piece of frosting-covered Snyder, there will be a silent auction, prizes such as trips, dinners, signed Redskins memorabilia and game tickets. There will also be a $100 prize for the "best Daniel Snyder in a cheerleader costume."
The event falls, appropriately, on April Fool’s Day, and the festivities begin at 7 p.m. The bar’s flyer can be seen here (NSFW if slang words for male genitalia offend you).
