Can you believe it’s nearly the end of summer? The only good thing about the dwindling number of poolside weekends is that it’s nearly fall fashion season. We’re kicking it off right by throwing a fashion preview party with INTERMIX Georgetown and J.BRAND. So, on Tuesday, August 27, come sip complimentary champagne, nosh on apps, listen to beats by our fave DJ, Ryan Ulbrich, and shop for your perfect pair of fall jeans– a J.BRAND fit specialist (and the Bitches) will be on-hand to assist. RSVP on Facebook.
But first, let’s get through this week.
First up, it’s Restaurant Week! Snag some great deals for lunch or dinner, but make your reservations early. See the full list of restaurant specials here. Our pick? Policy will be showcasing its brand-new menu for the event in a four-course meal for dinner only—one starter, two main courses and the option of one side or a dessert for $35.13, price does not D.C. sales tax or gratuity. Make reservations here. Some other Bitch-approved suggestions would be Azure, Al Dente, B Too, Daikaya, Lavagna, Mintwood Place, Rasika, to name a few.
