    Mother of Five Scared Straight After Heart Attack in her 40s
    Dirty Martini

    "In D.C, we work hard, we play hard. We need big leisure time."

    So decrees the Dirty Martini (1223 Connecticut Ave. N.W.), and it's likely true. But apparently, what we really need is large, large, large alcoholic beverages.

    The kind of drink that requires a snorkel instead of a straw.

    Thus the spot has launched the Big Dirty, the largest cocktail in town. Translation: You can order 48 ounces of any cocktail on the menu.

    It's a third bigger than the Starbucks trenta size, which itself is slightly larger than a human stomach. Please make the enjoyment of this drink a group project.
