Welcome to the Day Party to end all Day Parties!

In 2011 & 2012, this was one of the crowd favorites, so you know we had to bring it back, by popular demand! In 2011 when our Day Party reached record levels, a new flavor, a new tradition was added to “The DC Mix”. Sticking to a similar theme in 2013, we decided to bring the Day Party back! With the football season approaching, we figured the appropriate theme would be “1st And Goal”. This is the event where you get to show The DC Mix fam just who you riding with! No matter if your squad is Ravens/Steelers, Texas/Oklahoma, Jets/Giants, Cowboys/Redskins or Alabama/LSU, grab your favorite football team apparel, professional or collegiate, and come out to put on for your team! Never partied with the sun still up? You can’t afford to miss this event! It will definitely be a crowd pleaser with great music, wonderful drinks and a buzzing atmosphere.
