I’m the guru of going out in DC. A great weekend for me consists of “binge-rsvp’ing” for various guest lists and taking my followers along for the ride. In a 48 hour span I may: jog a 5K sponsored by a leading creative engine, welcome a new brand to the district at a launch event, catch an indie artist showcase,pop up at a secret midnight happy hour, stretch my imagination and MetroCard at a city-wide arts festival and live to write about it. From experiences like this, I create practical features like “A Woman’s Guide to Approaching Men in DC” and targeted features like “How to Enjoy Art” which drew straight-laced millennials to one of DC’s biggest art summits.
