Blarney Blowout Breakfast

Instead of a St. Patrick's Day bar crawl in Arlington, Project DC Events is throwing a Blarney Blowout breakfast bash on Saturday March 18 morning at multiple Arlington locations. Keep the fun going from the Friday night festivities with a little help of hair of the dog at this Irish breakfast at either A-Town, Pamplona, Clarendon Grill or Courthaus Social.

Tickets are $25 and are for one of the four venues only, so choose your adventure wisely. Tickets include an all you can eat breakfast from 8 to 11am, drink specials, DJs, raffles and outfit contests. Wearing as much green as possible is recommended.

Derek Evry at Black Cat

Local favorite Derek Evry is taking the stage at Black Cat in DC on Friday March 10 for the first time playing in his own band. Derek frequents many Clarendon and DC venues often and is a huge part of our local music scene. In addition, the $12 show ($10 in advance) will feature more music and burlesque:

Jonny Grave & the Tombstones
Oh He Dead
Derek Evry & the Rhythm Section

GiGi Holliday of Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret
Whiskey Joy of Baltimore, MD

Hosted by:
Jenn Tisdale

This is an exciting time for Derek, as last week was not only his birthday but he also announced his engagement to Emily Henry, also a super talented singer-songwriter. Congrats!
