One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

It's hard to believe that Dupont Circle's very own, One Lounge has only been open for just one year. In this short time, the restaurant and lounge has managed to become a hot spot destination for dining and special events alike, welcoming in some of DC's most high-profile personalities.

On Tuesday night, Washington Capitals' stars Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Semyon Varlamov joined One Lounge co-owners Niko Papademtriou, Seth McClelland, Filipp Zeldin and Daniel Kramer to make a toast to the restaurant's one-year anniversary. Guests were privy to passed hors d'oeuvres and a four hour open bar sponsored by Perrier-Jouet, Red Bull and Svedka featuring One Lounge's new winter cocktails.

"Present Interval/Intervalo en el Presente” A Video Installation Project by Alberto Roblest

This event comes to us from Kristen Barden:

Video artist Alberto Roblest brings his latest public art project to the heart of Adams Morgan for two nights only November 5 and 6, 2010.  “Present Interval/Intervalo en el Presente” is a temporary video installation that will transform a triangle of redbrick and asphalt at the intersection of 18th Street and Columbia Road NW into a museum experience without the museum or even a roof. It will, in fact, be a cultural experience that you can stroll through, under a starry sky.

Halloween Candy for Troops

This  year, make Halloween about more than just collecting or distributing candy for  kids to eat (or overeat!). Participate in Treats-4-Troops, a post-Halloween candy collection project by MoverMoms.  Donate any or all of it to US troops serving in Iraq , Afghanistan , and    Kuwait , and thereby:

    * TEACH kids about the joys of giving and sharing!

    * BRIGHTEN a soldier’s day!

    * GET the candy out of your house!

MoverMoms,  a Bethesda-based non-profit, will donate all candy to a West Virginia-based  non-profit that packs it in Christmas stockings for troops of all faiths.   Last year the candy that MoverMoms collected in DC,  Maryland and  Virginia filled over 11,000 stockings.
