Snack Time

DC Snacks

Think fast DC. It’s 2:00 in the morning on a Saturday night. You just polished off 10 beers with your friends at Lucky Bar. While your goal was to meet some hottie, well, it just didn’t happen, even with those extremely thick beer goggles you have on. Your friends are in the same boat that you are so you say, “Adios amigos,” and go your separate ways. You stumble home, plop down on your couch, but there’s only one problem. You somehow forgot to eat dinner and you’re starving! What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?!

Well if you’re like me, you have no food in your house. Your fridge contains butter, expired salad dressing, and some ketchup. You could go to 7 Eleven and get one of their day old hotdogs that have been rolling around on the torture rack all day long. But an even better alternative is to get on your computer and go to DC

From ice cream to frozen pizza, condoms to cigarettes, DC Snacks has a little bit for everyone. They accept orders from 8pm to 2am (Sun-Wed) and 8pm to 4am (Th-Sat), and judging from their customer testimonials they do a good job.

I don’t know about you, but I miss the days of You could order almost anything from their site (magazines, movies, food, beverages, etc) and have it delivered to your door for free. Why leave the house? Sadly they were a victim of the dotcom implosion.

I just found out about DC Snacks a few days ago so I haven’t tried them out yet, but hey, Saturday is only a couple of days away and Lucky Bar is calling my name.

    Love the idea. I’m rarely awake at 2am with the buzzing munchies BUT it would be great for those nights when I am already settled in comfy at home wishing there was some ice cream around… or red wine – do they deliver wine?

    As far as I can tell they don’t deliver alcoholic beverages which for a lot of people would REALLY mean they’d never leave the house.

    I though we wrote about them 1+ year ago, though I can’t find any mention. If I recall correctly, they started out serving the GU student community and even took GU meal cards for a time.

    The company started out at GW as CampusSnacks and has since expanded their operations. Always good service and can vouch for them. One of the best things in DC

    Umm, Kozmo? Remember 1997?

    Man, do I ever remember Kozmo! They were operating in DC as late as 2001, and they rocked seriously hard.
