Rooftop Gypsy Jazz (& optional art reception) -You must rsvp eventbrite for jazz

We haven't done the Thursday night Sunset Rooftop live music at the ultra-cool Beacon Hotel Skybar yet this year.  So with good weather coming, now is the time!  The Bitter Dose Combo plays Gypsy Jazz in the Django Reinhardt tradition. I looked at their YouTube clips from local shows and they're very good.  We will start the night a few blocks away at one of the coolest art galleries in Washington - Longview Gallery and Jason Wright's landscapes titled The Great Escape.  It starts at 6:30 pm.

***For the rooftop music, YOU NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION.  It's free.  CLICK HERE and register on the Eventbrite site.  Again, if you would like to join us for the rooftop jazz, please make a separate reservation by clicking here.***

The gallery opening is optional. You can meet us at the rooftop jazz if you'd like. We'll leave the art gallery between 7 and 7:15 and it's about a 10-minute walk (9th st. to about 16th along Mass Ave).  The live jazz starts at 8 pm.  It's very pretty up there and attracts a nice crowd. It's sponsored by Art Soiree.

I'll also look for something before the gallery for those of us who work downtown.  There are a couple other possible places that I need to check on.  The Beacon does serve food on the roof and also there's a Happy Hour, I believe until 7 pm with half-price appetizers.  You could also grab something before our event if you'd like.

    Ronn, do you know what the parking situation is like at each venue? I will be driving. If I try to take the metro, I might as well forget it and I would like to hang out.

    August 15, 2013

    • Ronn

      there should be street parking available near both Longview and Beacon. At Longview - on 9th St. - the meters go to 6:30. Near Beacon - on say, Mass. Ave - they go to 10.

    Ronn, Have you decided on a place to meet prior to Touchstone?

    August 15, 2013

    • Ronn

      Touchstone at 6pm is our first event. The Portrait Gallery has jazz at 5 pm in their atrium if you are already in the city.
