Escape from the Boys’ Club: An Evening with Sirens and Ciders


On Monday night, six women met up in a basement on Capitol Hill. It was decorated with art on the walls, booths marked with place cards and a long table that was set for a party. Upstairs, the small waiting area of Capitol Cider got fuller and fuller, anticipation and hunger building in waves as time ticked toward the 6 o’clock start, then past it. Finally, the thick of people plodded down the stairs to where plates were being wiped, shined and dotted with carefully portioned flourishes. The Sirens & Cider event began.
