Friday Roundup: District Sample Sale, Park Hyatt Masters, and Art Soiree!

Depending on how you look at it, I have good or bad news.  If, like me, you’ve had about enough of DC’s infamous summertime humidity, it’s good news.  If you haven’t had your fill of far-too-hot weather just yet, it’s not so good news.  Either way, summer is almost over, which means a fabulous collection of fall events are on their way.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Get those calendars out!

District Sample Sale: One of my favorite shopping events of the year – not only because you can get some fabulous looks for a very cool discount, but also because the proceeds go to charity! DSS features over 20 top designer clothing and shoe boutiques selling their end-of-season wares at liquidation-level prices, with many previewing their upcoming season looks at DDS-exclusive pricing. Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from participating restaurants, a fashion-focused silent auction, raffle, goodie bag (with VIP tickets) and more.  There’s nothing more fabulous than shopping for a good cause.  Tuesday, September 11th; 5:30 – 6:30 VIP Hour ($100) | 6:30 – 9:00 General Admission ($40).

Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine Culinary Evening: Park Hyatt Washington will host the Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine, a seasonal culinary experience saluting the ingredients, flavors, and talents of local chefs, regional producers, and American winemakers. This special gastronomic Park Hyatt Masters event will present a five-course ‘Masters’ dinner, complemented with a selection of rare and unique wines from Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley, California. Translation: Yum.  Saturday, September 22nd, $155 per person, Reservations:;

Art Soiree: 3rd Annual Midsummer Nights Dream: Jazz up your Sunday Funday at the Georgetown Waterfront this weekend with Art Soiree’s annual Midsummer Nights Dream Event.  Art Soiree, Nick’s Riverside Grill, Tony & Joe’s Restaurant, Roche Salon, MRP Realty at Washington Harbour, and a group of talented local artists will be using the magic of art to transform the heart of Georgetown into an enchanted wonderland featuring a fantasy body painting show and live performances.  I really have no other words for this event.  Just go – it’ll be fabulous.  Sunday, August 12th, 7pm $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
