Do you wish you could add a touch of Miami Beach or Long Beach to your Thursday night?  Look no further than Art Soiree‘s latest venture – the Thursday evening Sunset Rooftop Performance Series atop the Beacon Hotel, where an elegant and international crowd lounges in the comfortably appointed resort-style rooftop complete with canopies and dramatic lighting, while listening to live musical acts and enjoying the view of DC (which is alone worth the ticket price of $10!)  This past Thursday’s theme was “Funky White Night,” with everyone invited to wear white, and check out the chill and expertly performed music of The Cricket Fusion, a contemporary jazz trio from DC, as well as DJ John Jazz. The atmosphere was congenial and laid-back, with plenty of opportunity to make rounds through the mingling crowd, or stick with a group of friends in a comfy spot to enjoy the sunset and libations.  This Thursday’s event is called “Opera Rendezvous” and features an opera duo of Jose Sacin & Ernesto Bravo as well as latest sounds by DJ FOTIFO.  Tickets are available online only and don’t forget your cocktail attire!

Geek Night Comedy @ DC Improv Lounge
$17
Geek Night Comedy is a stand-up comedy show created and run by geeks, for geeks. It includes a unique hybrid of both standup and improv. In its 5-year history, the group has run successful shows at the Virginia Beach & Richmond Funny Bones, here at the D.C. Improv, the Orlando Improv, and Awesome Con, their partners in this year's event! Past shows have received news coverage from local TV stations, as well as print coverage in The Virginian-Pilot, Inside Business and Sirius-XM's wildly popular "Monsters in the Morning." Charity is important to the Geek's Night, and their productions have raised thousands for ALS-TDI, the leading research group in the fight against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and will be doing so once again here at the DC Improv by giving away FREE passes to Awesome Con, along with other great items and collectables from local video game & comic book shops via our $1.00 raffle! A portion of door sales will also benefit this awesome non-profit.
