    Acre 121, a new bar in Columbia Heights that hosts live music every weekend, threw a bluegrass New Years Eve party with music by The Family Hammer. In addition to balloons, banjo pluckin', midnight kisses and a champagne toast, there was a marriage proposal that night--and she said yes!

    [She said yes!]

    Kevin, who works at Acre 121, proposed to his girlfriend in front of the crowd!

    [Although he was technically working that night, he took a break to celebrate over champagne and dance with his fiancee at midnight, of course!]

    Most people arrived early to indulge in Acre 121's decadent 3-course New Year's Eve meal, that included lobster and a petite filet, champagne, raspberry tart and more.

    Colorful balloons dropped on the crowd at midnight and The Family Hammer twanged their banjos and fiddles on into 2012.
