Welcome back, kittens! We hope you had a spectacular three-day weekend. Becca spent the holiday at a private beach in Key West, meanwhile I was in Washington freezing my tail off and losing my iPhone in a taxicab after too many mango martinis at Russia House (oy vey). Clearly, we know which Bitch made the better adult life decisions this weekend.
My favorite Belgian spot and H Street hole-in-the-wall, Granville Moore’s, hosts a Heavy Seas Beer Ahead Dinner. The dinner includes a six-course menu with beer pairings from Maryland brewery Heavy Seas. (I recommend the food and beer by both establishments). Dinner is $70, call for reservations. 7 p.m. 1238 H Street N.E., Washington, D.C. (202) 399-2546

After work, come learn about two our fave topics—food and social media. Miss Becca was invited by the Social Media Club of D.C. to moderate their “Chefs Gone Social” panel, featuring representatives from Jose Andres, Robert Weidmaier of Marcels Beck and Brasserie Beck, and Chef Tony Marciante. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door. 6:30-8:30 p.m., Buffalo Billiards, 1330 19th Street N.W., Washington, D.C.

Tonight, the Washington Ballet Jete Society hosts by far and away one of the best parties of the year.

Tickets, which include a five-hour open bar, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, a DJ, and performance by the ballet are $95 and selling out fast. 1150 22nd St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Tickets sold out in a day for our Bitches Who Brunch + One Medical New Year, Healthy Bitches yoga and pilates brunch. But, you can add yourself to the waitlist, cross your fingers, and hope you get entry to the fabulous free fete hosted at Mint downtown. Better yet, we’ll be giving away a few select tickets to you stragglers later in the week, so be sure to check back!
