The Weekly Round-up: 11/6-11/13

In partnership with a new radio segment I’m doing for the Bert Show, here’s a round-up of the week ahead in events and galas. It’s a bit of a slow week, with DC emptying out for the holiday weekend, but there’s still plenty to do with your extra day off!


Night at the Waterfront with Sumeria

Sumeria’s next major event in the district is coming up in November and you better be there! We’ve rented out the inside of Sequoia with a full open bar, light hors d’oevres, some of DC’s coolest startups, good music, and a cast of everyone you’ll want to see. Nonprofit partners: Dreams for Kids, The Carver Project, The Madison, Touching Heart, Circle of Women, New Hope Housing, and Suited for Change. Sponsored by MyGradPad. Formal Attire (suits/dresses).
