We kicked off this week with a Wines of France American BBQ last night, hosted by Cori Sue at A Bar Avenue Suites. We enjoyed French wine paired with American BBQ food on the patio and then danced the night away—the lawnmower is a signature move—to the new Calvin Harris and Daft Punk tunes. Today hurts a little, kittens.
God Bless the U-S-of-A and the four-day weekend that’s not too far away. It’ll be here before you know it, American babes.
Tonight, head to the Freigeist Bierkultur Beer Dinner at Birch & Barley, hosted by founder Sebastian Sauer.

Call (202) 567-2576 to make a reservation.
