After a week of disgusting temperatures, the weather is finally nice and it’s safe to leave the office for a rooftop happy hour.
Art Soiree Sunset Rooftop Series at the Beacon Hotel’s Sky Bar (1615 Rhode Island Ave. NW) begins at 5 p.m., with happy hour running until 7 p.m.
Besides an excuse to drink in the Capitol’s skyline — and some tasty martinis — Art Soiree is five months of ultimate music experiences. A line-up of more than 20 bands will perform every Thursday until late October, with local bands of various genres from jazz to pop to rock.
Up tonight is an album release party for: IhsAn Bilal‘s TEAL album.
Classically trained at the Duke Ellington School of the Performing Arts, IhsAn Bilal has a good balance of class and sass.
Need another reason to enjoy the amazing weather today?
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
