Patrons eat out on the sidewalk patio of the Hawk 'n' Dove bar in Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2011. After more than 40 years in business, the bar, which has been an institution on Capitol Hill will be closing down Oct. 2. There will be a series of events and celebrations leading up to the closing, and all of the bar's contents will be auctioned off. Regular patrons told The Washington Times that they are saddened by the closing. Many consider it a home away from home where they gather with friends. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
