Yes, its Party Planner Wayan, back again with another Thursday night line-up for your drinking pleasure.
First up we have a new entrant to the Thursday night Happy Hour scene, one that I’m not convinced is worth the $10-15 cover and mandatory RSVP, or list of intricate rules to escape either. Still, a Brazilian Sunset Samba Happy Hour and Dance Party, complete with a limbo contest, does sound like fun, and the Hilton Embassy Row Rooftop location cannot be beat. I only wish they could figure out better ad copy than the vaguely sleazy-sounding “social networking and connecting with beautiful and diverse International Professionals.”
Hilton Washington Embassy Row, 2015 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
6:30-10PM, $10 with RSVP/$13 without RSVP
Next you can show your support for the AIDS Marathon in Honolulu by Learning How to Hula for a Good Cause Happy Hour. There will be an extended happy hour, including drink specials, a free taco bar, a hula demonstration and great raffle prizes from local businesses. “Great” being relative when prizes are one pound bags of Starbucks coffee and free lei’s.
The Front Page, 4201 Wilson Blvd, Arlington,VA
5:00pm to 8:00pm, $10 minimum donation requested
Perennial party-makers Professionals in the City are having a 35 Plus Evening Cruise on the Potomac, which sounds “great” until you realize what that means. Namely, that you’ll be trapped on a boat in the Potomac for three hours, with either Diane from Accounting or Bill from IT Support stalking you from bow to stern with tales of their psycho ex or jail-bound kids. I suggest wearing clothes you can swim in as an emergency escape plan.
Boat leaves from Washington Harbor (in Georgetown) 3050 K Street, N.W
7:30 PM – 10:00 PM, $20.00 if purchased in advance
Last but not least, there is a new club in town, kstreet, which is opening tonight. If you know the special handshake, or subscribe to DC Collective or PartySlave, you can to get in on the opening night for free before Midnight. Everyone else will have to pay a $10 cover charge. Now if you are willing to guarenttee at least a $500, you can reserve a tale and have “faster table service through the use of handheld wireless technology.” I wonder if that means the servers have pagers, or are we talking some cool Google Hack?
kstreet, 1301 K Street, NW
10pm, $10 cover without email printout
