Here’s what’s on our agenda this week …
Cori Sue was sad she couldn’t sun salutate on the National Mall yesterday (the pesky rain cancelled the event), but the rest of the sixth annual DC Yoga Week is still a go with free and $5 classes across town all week long. Tonight, get your yogi self to Bikram Yoga Dupont, Circle Yoga, The Studio DC, or Simon Says Yoga Studio for classes. Check out all the classes and details here and also pencil in the Yoga Flash Mob at John Marshall Park this Saturday at 10 a.m.
Do you own any Kal Rieman pieces? It’s like she makes them just for D.C.’s power women: structured, tailored, almost masculine ready-to-wear that flatters your shape and roars for respect. From the Hill staffer to Senator, there are pieces for all in her fall collection, which she will be showing at a trunk show Tuesday night from 5 to 9 p.m. at Studio Gallery, 2108 R St. N.W. RSVP to [email protected].
All this week, across the country, it’s American Craft Beer Week. D.C. is celebrating the holiday in its own way, with events at breweries and restaurants all week long (check out the full schedule here). Wednesday night has a lot of great events to choose from, such as the FlyingDog “Steal the Pint Night” at Fire Works Pizza in Arlington. Or the Tröegs Draft Rarities and Glassware Giveaway at ChurchKey, where they’ll be featuring 10 different Tröegs beers on draft. Or send your man to get “Swell Groomed” at Smith Commons, where the third floor will become a men’s grooming lounge (with beer, of course) for the night.
We like food and we like animals, so what could be better than ZooFari, honestly? The lineup for this year’s event features more than 100 of D.C.’s restaurants, plus wine, entertainment, cooking demonstrations, and an auction to benefit the amazing Smithsonian National Zoo. All among the animals. Tickets are $200, or $300 if you want access to the Lion Lounge (tickets are less if you’re a FONZ member). Get them here.
Front Row at Bethesda Row kicks off on Thursday, but Friday is the big night with the annual event’s signature runway show at 7:30, plus a special appearance by PR maverick Kelly Cutrone, who will be signing her book. Also, there will be a ton of other events in the Row’s boutiques all that evening, including a Lauren Harper trunk show at Amethyst, a Rachel Pally trunk show at Urban Chic, a Roarke NYC trunk show at Sassanova, free makeovers at Aveda, a tee party at Luna, and more. See all the events here.
Want to be Chef for a Day? You can be, while supporting college students from Puerto Rico and enjoying great food and music. The Washington Center & MIO are hosting a four-course dinner Saturday night to benefit the Córdova Congressional Internship Program, which places students from Puerto Rico as interns on Capitol Hill for a semester. Tickets are $65 per person. Be sure to mention “Mucho Gusto” in the “Direct my gift” drop down menu.
There’s a charming new brunch spot in town, opening this Sunday. Try Bookhill Bistro for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The restaurant two sunny stories and an intimate patio, and will be serving dishes such as French toast with bacon, beet root soup with smoked trout, rack of lamb with garlic confit, and a charcuterie plate. 1639 Wisconsin Ave. NW, b/t Q & R Sts. (202) 338-0001.
