The weather is heavenly, Halloween parties are gearing up, and Comedy Central is in town. It’s gonna be a great week. Here’s where we’ll be …
Boys, get your heels out! It’s the DC Drag Queen Race this Tuesday. Costumed drag queens will race down 17th Street and then party the night away. Grab a spot to spectate between P and S Streets NW near Dupont Circle.
Fashion for Paws’ Halloween-themed Pawtini Happy Hour on the new J&G Patio at the W Hotel. There will be a Halloween Dog Costume Contest (judged by Fox’s Steve Chenevey and PamelasPunch.com’s Pamela Sorenson), which is bound to be disgustingly cute. A percentage of the proceeds from the bar goes to the Washington Humane Society, and we’re all for that. 6 to 9 p.m. RSVP here.
ReadySetDC’s fashion:district, which will put the spotlight on the fall/winter 2010 collections from local businesses and designers. Held at the Stroga studio in Adam’s Morgan, the event will not just be a runway show – it will have pop-up shops, art installations, and amazing music. Get tickets today, because this one will sell out. The after party will be at Napoleon Bistro & Lounge.
It’s the Hirshhorn Museum’s After Hours party! I haven’t missed one of these yet this year because, frankly, they are ridiculously fun. DJ Matt Bailer and DJ Robert Bozick are back to spin an amazing ’90s dance party. Plus, artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt will be doing a special live screening of three short films. Again, these sell out. So get your tickets here fast.
Do you have your sign made for the Rally to Restore Sanity? We’ll be on the National Mall with Jon, Stephen, and every 20- and 30-something within a 100-mile radius of Washington. “Think of our event as Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement; the Million Man March, only a lot smaller, and a bit less of a sausage fest.” Can’t wait.
Cheer on Cori Sue as she runs the Marine Corps Marathon to benefit the Washington Humane Society (help her surpass her goal by donating here!). I know, I know, the morning of Halloween is not ideal to get up early and cheer. But think about all those star athletes that are running the 26 miles for such great causes. And they’ve been doing it for 35 years!
