If you’re like me, then you’re getting a little sick of hearing about this snow storm. I’m from upstate New York, so I’m very used to the snow and I don’t understand why D.C. can’t handle a little frozen water. This isn’t our first snow storm, so it’s time to invest in some shovels and toboggans and embrace the snow flakes. We hope you were able to relax this weekend during #snowzilla and are ready for the events we have lined up for you this week!
Start your week off on a healthy note and attend Lululemon’s weekly complementary Barre class from 7-8 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your own mat! 3265 M St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
If you’re more of a bar girl than a barre girl, then head to Bar Charley for their all night happy hour. You can get a Tiki Tap for just $5 or $6 for one of their “Classics” (I recommend the Jack Rose). 1825 18th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Whether you can’t wait for Valentine’s Day or loathe the singles-awareness holiday, meet us on February 13th at Lincoln for the pre-race brunch, followed by Cupid’s Undie Run, a silly, fun charity run that supports the Children’s Tumor Foundation. It’s more of a party than a serious, competitive race (it’s 1.5 miles) that benefits cancer research. So, register for Cupid’s Undie Run with the code “BWB” for 25% off and then make your reservation for the pre-race brunch at Lincoln on OpenTable. Brunch begins at 9:30 a.m. and then we head over to the race activities at 12 p.m.
Vino, anyone? Head to Vinoteca tonight for a California themed wine tasting at 7 p.m. The class will feature between four to six wines, and is taught by the talented and tasteful wine director, Kate Chrisman. Accompanied with a plate of delicious bites assembled by executive chef, Lonnie Zoeller. The cost is $50 per person.

The event begins at 6 p.m. and is free, but individual RSVP is required. 7911 Westpark Dr., Tysons, VA.
The final installments of ANXO’s Cider Club residency at Colony Club will take place January 29th and February 12th.

For a mere $20, the first 20 guests will enjoy unlimited self-serve pintxos and Basque cider pours during the first hour of the event. They also are introducing 25 new ciders! The best part about cider is that it’s made from apples which means it’s basically a fruit-so drink up! The event starts at 5:30 p.m. but make sure to get there early for the unlimited self-serve deal. 3118 Georgia Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
