Back at the end of April, we said forever goodbye to Church & State, one of Erik Holzherr’s quirky/clever-themed bars. The tucked-away, semi-secret, church-decorated bar had been around since 2011 and had some of the best martinis I’ve ever had. If you’re feeling particularly nostalgic, read this write-up of the opening from, *sniiffff,* We Love DC.
However, it’s no longer time to be sad and wistful: IDLE HANDS is opening this Thursday, June 14! We look forward to seeing what new mischief Erik has concocted. Just let this image from the invite linger in your psyche: “Located above Atlas Arcade, IH is like the older brother that always shows up in that sweet, tricked-out Camaro trying to impress that rocker girl with the big hair.”
