Event Series Event Series: Death over Drafts at Duffy’s!

Join us from 6-7:30pm at our favorite neighborhood pub for Death Over Drafts!

WHERE? Duffy’s Irish Pub 1901 C St SE, Washington, DC 20003

This is a free and informal gathering for the community that will be held monthly on the FINAL (get it?) Tuesday of the month. Come once or come monthly: no experience or expectations necessary! The event will be co-hosted by a “death doula” and a “death midwife” who love getting people to talk about this sometimes-taboo topic.

The founder of the Death Over Drafts movement, Stefanie Elkins, describes the goal as this: “Death over Drafts is a casual and fun community event to spark connection and is part of a growing movement to destigmatize important conversations on end-of-life.” 

What to expect:

  • The event is free!
  • All are welcome!
  • You can still come if you don’t love beer, there are other snacks and drinks! ;)
  • This is a super supportive community, but we are not a support group.
  • In this communal environment, we remind you to be responsible for your own engagement.

At Death Over Drafts, the public can enjoy a fun conversation where death is not avoided. There’s no lecture, but questions will be answered. You never know who you will sit next to, very interesting fellow guests will be in our midst. We will also have a game called “Death Deck” on the table, a Death Over Drafts favorite activity!

Everyone dies, and talking about it won’t kill us.

Your hosts for the evening will be the Death Doula in Residence at Congressional Cemetery, Laura Lyster-Mensh, and Death Midwife, Robin Miniter.
