Good morning, lovely ladies and dapper dudes! We hope you’re sun-tanned, well-rested and properly brunched after the long weekend. Take advantage of the four-day work week by having lots of fun. Cheers to a charmed week, Bitches.
Go enjoy a lobster roll in honor of America’s favorite president, John F. Kennedy. Today would have been his 95th birthday (RIP), so the Kennedy Center’s KC Café is serving up fresh lobster rolls with Cape Cod potato chips ($16.50) all day in his honor. Chilled to perfection, the lobster is served in a traditional dressing on a warm New England roll, topped with watercress. John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C.
Take a mid-week break and head to the newly reopened 1905 patio. This U Street gem happens to have one of the best happy hour deals in town—with gourmet food and delicious wines at steep discounts. Stop by for happy hour then head up to the patio to enjoy the sunshine. 1905 9th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Prefer to save your skin from cancer? Then, check out your new God-send, Whole Glow—a mobile, all-natural and organic spray tan company. Whole Glow uses the same magical potion used by Hollywood celebs like Jessica Alba, so you’re sure to look natural and glowing rather than orange and frightening. The launch party takes place tonight, 6-9 p.m. with a rooftop shindig that includes champagne, appetizers, gift bags, free tans and lots of fun. It’s followed by an after-party at L2 Lounge. RSVP by e-mail to [email protected]. 6-9 p.m., 1701 Massachusetts Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Earlier in the evening at L2, I am thrilled to be judging the Mr. District of Colombia Pageant. The man-pageant is hosted by the 2012 Miss DC Contestants—who are in search for their Mister! The gentlemen will compete in a Miss America style pageant, with evening wear, talent and on-stage questions. Proceeds from the event benefit the Children’s Miracle Network. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. 7 p.m., L2 in Cady’s Alley, Georgetown.
I’ll be out of town, but I’m very sad to miss this surprisingly fun annual event. The Young Professionals in Foreign Policy’s Affairs of State Gala occurs Friday at The Madison Hotel. The evening includes drink specials, dancing and an after-party at George. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased online. 8 p.m., The Madison Hotel, 1177 15th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
I attended this event last year and it was loads of fun. It’s the Second Annual Cajun Cookout at Mason Inn: Tickets include all-you-can-eat boiled Louisiana crawfish, Gulf shrimp, and Jambalaya, a complimentary one-hour open bar at Mason Inn on Thursday, May 31st, fun swag from our sponsors (think croakies, shirts, coozies, hats, and more), live music by Timmie Metz, drink specials and a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Wounded Warrior Project. Tickets, $25. 5 p.m., Mason Inn, 2408 Wisconsin Ave. N.W.
