Mayor Bowser to Launch “Be Downtown Specials” with Visit to Roasting Plant Coffee

Sunday, February 4, 2024

(Washington, DC) – On Monday, February 5 at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will tour Roasting Plant Coffee, an innovative DC coffee shop in Downtown DC. The Mayor will use the visit as an opportunity to encourage residents, workers, and visitors to explore new local hotspots — and old favorites — in Downtown, particularly as more people come back to work.   

In partnership with the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington and the business community, many local coffee shops and restaurants will be offering deals throughout February and March to encourage residents and workers to support local businesses.
