Drink and Be Merry
'Tis the season for giving, but 'tis also the season to be jolly. While there is plenty of time to be both spirited and selfless, this week you have the opportunity to be both at once. This Thursday is World Aids Day and Bar Rouge is hosting the Red Hot Relief cocktail party to raise money for the National AIDS fund.
The bar has created two specialty $5 cocktails for the night: the Red Ribbon-tini, a vodka, sour apple, cranberry and lime juice cocktail, and the Red Cent Bellini, a blend of champagne and creme de peche. With a $10 suggested donation, you can munch on red-themed appetizers, listen to local a capella group Potomac Fever and view art by Bridget Walsh, director of the gallery at the Art League in Alexandria. Walsh will auction off a piece she created especially for the evening, which is inspired by the color red. There will also be a raffle for a San Francisco weekend getaway open to anyone who paid the $10 suggested cover. That's enough to make my days "merry and bright."
