Since D.C. is a city that is all about the 9 to 5 grind, we partnered with our friends at lululemon to do a monthly series that is all about what we do from 5 to 9 (afterwork, before work, work, work, work). April’s was full of mindful meditation with Take Five Meditation. For May, we took the meditation/party to Dupont Underground for a next level gong bath (also from Take Five Meditation) followed by incredible drinks from Homestead and live painting where the guests got to actually paint (we drew unicorns, don’t @ us), with tunes by the awesome Ayes Cold. Special thank you to Urban Stems for the flowers (which we stuck in the balls from The Beach and it was awesome). ALSO THANK YOU to WHOLE FOODS for the like ten pounds of GUACAMOLE! Twas delicious!

Check out all the pics (and try and figure out exactly what a gong bath is, we dare you), and stay tuned for when we announce the June 5to9!
