WASHINGTON — A week into the government shutdown, and still no end in sight.

However, according to some bartenders and service industry employees on Capitol Hill, that is not keeping members of Congress from getting out and about.

"Storm," a bartender at the Hawk and Dove said, "I don't think the public would be happy to know that they are actually enjoying this time."

According to him, lawmakers have been coming by the local bar all week. He says they were doing the same thing last Monday, the night of the shutdown.

He added, "There was a private party upstairs with a few Congress people and senators here that night."

That observation was echoed by another manager at a different establishment who spoke on condition of anonymity.
