Update: This event is cancelled due to Doubletree renovation schedule changes. Neither the restaurant nor the bar will be available on May 18. Please join us for Girls’ Night Out @ Takoma Park event that same night.
Hi ladies, join us for our Spring Fling Pre-Soiree dinner in bustling downtown Bethesda at the Doubletree hotel! Show off your favorite floral frock or flair.
Crash at the hotel to make your life easier. Be sure to book using our group rate of $99 a night by calling either Brittany or Zak directly at[masked]. Tell her (or him) that you are with the “DC Regional Trans Ladies” group and you will receive the discounted rate. If the nightly rate drops later, you’ll get the lower rate automatically. Parking inside hotel is also available for a modest amount, or you can park free at the municipal garage next to hotel.
The Doubletree Hotel staff are eager to host us. Hotel management supports our approach to build on successes from our previous Soirees. The restaurant's preparation and serving staff will be expecting us to arrive in waves for dinner and will be fully resourced to serve us.
Once the dinner period kicks off, you can take a seat in the restaurant early or have another drink at bar. Michelle or Suzanne will be there to help us form into groups then each bevy of gals will segue to a table. Specifically, we will seat ourselves in groups (8+-) in short (10-15 minute) intervals until we are all accommodated. This phased seating approach is intended to ensure more efficient order taking and more uniform, timely delivery of your meal and refreshments
At our signature soirees, we invite trans-women, their partners, and friends socialize, network, and relax. We encourage new girls to come out to help boost their confidence and garner tips from those more experienced. And of course, we love having our regulars come out too!
If you're not feeling ready for girl mode in public, you are still welcome to attend in guy mode. Upon arrival, introduce yourself as a member to the hosts, and we will welcome you warmly. Please consider joining us for the Pre-Soiree Dinner in the hotel's dining room. It is an opportunity to sit with your sisters and get to know them.
If you’re looking to get your Soiree makeup professionally applied, our very own Elizabeth Taylor (Beth) will be offering makeup makeovers at her home studio (http://makeoverswithelizabethtaylor.fullslate.com) in Cabin John about 15 minutes from the hotel. Other makeover artists are listed on our discussion board.
Beth Taylor will be taking photos during dinner and at the soiree.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Spring Fling Pre-Soiree Dinner!
