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.
