This week is going to be in-sane. I am closing on my new condo on Friday (woah, adulthood, woah), and I have a gaggle of sorority sisters flying into town Thursday night for a weekend of mayhem, punctuated by Gold Cup. Here we go!
Start the week chill with an amazing Belgian beer dinner at H Street’s Smith Commons. A five-course menu prepared by Brewery Ommegang culinary ambassador chef Teddy Folkman of Granville Moore’s will be paired with several craft beers from Brewery Ommegang. Guests will have a chance to win a six-pack of vintage Ommegang beer as a door prize, and anyone not lucky enough to snag one of the 55 tickets for the dinner can enjoy Ommegang beers on tap on the second floor as part of #CommonsMonday. Tickets are $85, get them here.
One of our fav brunch spots, Station 4, is hosting a Spring Hops Patio Party. $3 drafts of Blue Moon and Peroni, $3 cans of Leini’s Summer Shandy, prize giveaways, and nothing but the beautiful weather on the restaurant’s gorgeous patio. Get there early because the beer is complimentary from 5 to 7 p.m. Food and drink specials from 7 p.m. to close. 1101 4th St. SW; (202) 488-0987.
The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship is celebrating our area’s young entrepreneurs and future leaders at the NFTE DC Region’s 15th Annual Dare to Dream Gala. Guests will have the opportunity to network with 800 top entrepreneurs and business leaders from the region, purchase products and services made by NFTE students, and enjoy dinner and an awards ceremony celebrating entrepreneurship. It raises funds to provide entrepreneurship education to over 900 youth from low-income communities in the DC area. Get tickets here.
Cori Sue will be at the grand opening of Ligne Roset’s newly renovated showroom, hosted by DC Magazine. Make sure you RSVP, and go check out the goods. 6:30 p.m. 2201 Wisconsin Ave.
Who knew that a refurbished twenty-foot potato chip truck could be so chic? Joey Wolffer has cooked up a truly modern shopping experience and put it on wheels. The Styleliner, filled to the brim with extraordinary accessories from around the world, will roll into D.C. for six weeks, starting Friday. The Styleliner will be parked in the PNC Bank lot at M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Then, it bops around to other locations around D.C. Check out the full schedule here.
It’s GOLD CUPPPP! Cori Sue will be attending the 87th annual steeplechase horse races at Great Meadows in the Plains with the Capital Club. I have my own North Rail tent for 30 of my Bitches. But we’ll both be at the University Row tent at 2 p.m. to judge the Gold Cup’s Best Dressed Contest. Come say hi! Don’t have tickets yet? Roll with them.
That night, Cori Sue will be getting all decked out for the sold-out Ball on the Mall, co-chaired this year by Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager. The fourth annual event, held by the L’Enfant Society and the Trust for the National Mall, will be a beautiful evening of dancing, gorgeous food, and open bar, right on the National Mall between the Capitol building and the National Monument. 8 p.m.
