On Sunday, we saw the first snowflakes of the season while watching the Buffalo Bills game. Facepalm. That’s OK, because here in D.C. we are experiencing perfect fall weather, and with that comes some awesome seasonal events! Here’s what’s on tap for this week.

Join us at Nailsaloon on Tuesday, October 27, for our upcoming Fall Nails and Cocktails event! Your ticket will include a manicure, or pedicure, as well as heavy appetizers from Glen’s Garden Market, and cocktails—whiskey, beer from Three Stars, wine, champagne.  The gift bag will be filled with gifts from  Zengo, Herban Lifestyle, Handmade Habitat candles, and more. Click here to snag a ticket—they won’t last long!

We typically need little convincing to participate in happy hour during the week, but when boozing benefits others, we make every effort to clear our calendar.
