This D.C. Bar Is Serving $5 Russian Vodka Shots, "FBI" Sandwiches at James Comey Testimony Viewing Party

Almost 500 people have RSVP'd for the "Comey Hearing Covfefe" event.

Regardless of your political position, no one can honestly say that the first few months under the Trump presidency have been uneventful. And much of that drama, intrigue, and gossip has centered around James Comey, the FBI director who was dismissed by President Trump last month. Here's a dramatic reenactment of it in case you don't remember:

Trump: “Comey, yah fiahed."

(Disclaimer: Comey's dismissal came via letter, not in person, but that doesn't work for the bit.)

It should hopefully ring a bell for all you Apprentice fans, although we know it's hard to look back at all the gossip/allegations/resignations and remember every detail crystal clear.

And now, the drama continues as we prepare to hear what James Comey has to say when he testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

Though one bar in our nation’s capital is taking that preparation to the next level.

PEOPLE reports that Shaw’s Tavern will be opening early the morning of Comey’s testimony for a viewing party aptly dubbed “The Comey Hearing Covfefe.”

Starting at 9:30 a.m. the bar will be serving up $5 shots of Russian vodka (a breakfast of champions, no doubt) as well as an FBI-themed play on a BLT (Fried Chicken, Bacon, Iceberg Lettuce) and an FBI-themed breakfast (French Toast, Bacon and Ice Cream.)

Yes, French toast, bacon, ice cream, and vodka—all the pieces of a balanced breakfast.

Now if your gut reaction is, “Who the f*** would wake up early in the morning to drink vodka and eat ice cream all for the sake of watching C-SPAN,” you’re not alone. Shaw’s general manager and event organizer Rob Heim told PEOPLE that he came up with the idea for the party when he was home visiting his mother. Her first question: “Who would watch that?”

But Heim seems to have been right when he told his mom that people in D.C. definitely would: nearly 500 people have already RSVP’d yes, and several thousand more have expressed interest in the event.
