No I.D.? No problem!

While it may be a few years before you can hit up the bars without using your cousin’s old ID, being underage in D.C. won’t put a damper on your social life. The Hatchet asked several GW students about some of the best hotspots and attractions in the city, and where they liked to go when they were freshmen. Their answers prove there is always something to do in the District.
