Temperatures are starting to drop, it’s already getting darker a bit earlier in the evenings and hemlines are heading south. *teardrop* So you know what that means: summer’s wrapping up and making way for fall. And what’s an awesome way to kick off the fall in Washington DC? Eyes Wide Shut 9 (EWS) of course!
On Friday, September 27th, EWS celebrates its ninth year running and Culture Shock Entertainment and La Fortezza DC are planning yet another epic night. Never been? Well when you make it this year, expect some of the most beautiful people in the DMV partying hard in their hottest black attire behind deluxe masks! Why? Because the masquerade ball theme of EWS is “You Must Wear Black!” So ladies, pull out your hottest LBD or better yet, go buy a new one. Fellas, I don’t really care what you wear dress prepared to impress those ladies because trust me, they pull out all the stops when it comes to EWS. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at the galleries from EWS VIII – Trini Jungle Juice & Kid Mixx.
Masks will be provided, but if you’re up to it, bring your own and be a standout in the crowd!
With this year’s soundtrack set by Private Ryan (Trinidad), DJ Majestic (DC), and Trigga of Half Krazy (DC), you don’t want to miss being a part of the this epic event.
Given the current economy, we’ve decided to move away from the drinks inclusive party format this year. Though it was probably the least expensive premium open bar ever to touch the DMV, a good number of people were a bit apprehensive about the price of admission for the last two years. Since the last thing we want to do is alienate anyone, it’s back to lower admission, cash bar, and table service. To those of you who actually appreciated the drinks inclusive scene, don’t worry, we’ll wean you lushes off of the open bar with a few liquor sponsors.
Once again, we’ll keep up our tradition of partying for a cause because the price of a ticket includes awesome vibes, amazing music, and community consciousness with some of the proceeds going to Life Pieces to Masterpieces! If you are too lazy to peruse don’t have time to check out their site, they’re an organization focused on “providing opportunities to discover and activate the innate and creative abilities of the members to change life challenges into possibilities.” Their programs keep young minority males out of trouble while unlocking the loads of potential they have.
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, back to the matter at hand – EWS!
Admission this year is $15 until Monday, September 23, $20 the week of the party and $25 at the door! So, mark Friday, September 27 on your calendar for EWS IX at Tuscana Lounge (1350 I Street, NW).
