La Boum brunch II

La Boum

The D.C. classic has moved to a new location since we reviewed it, but the party must go on. Indeed, La Boum has had several venues but never ceases to be the craziest party brunch in the District. The brunch buffet isn’t much to look at, but that’s just the precursor to a wild afternoon of drinks, dancing, and debauchery. Read our full review, here.
