The W Hotel has a history of using their walls to show off cool and interesting art – and using their lounges to throw fabulous parties. Those come together tonight to celebrate the opening of an exclusive photography exhibit, “ROCKED.” These iconic photos of musicians by British “man who shot the seventies” Mick Rock will bring forty years of rarely-displayed images of the performers who defined pop culture to a Washington audience for the first time.

To open the exhibit which is set to run March 2-31, a lavish party will be hosted as part of the “W Happenings” series, including a live performance by Fitz and the Tantrums and a DJ set by Rob Garza and Eric Hilton of local legends Thievery Corporation.

Sound like an amazing party you do not want to miss? You still have until 5pm today to enter to win two VIP passes to attend – along with a signed copy of Mick Rock’s book and an overnight stay at the hotel.

  2. Absolutely, Kevin. Vapor cigs emit no foul odor…and depending on the flavor you smoke, they can actually emit a nice odor (vanilla, grape, cherry, etc.). But I’m guessing since you’re a cigar smoker you’re looking at the tobacco flavors probably. Either way, e-cigs won’t be an irritant to your wife.
