Blockbuster Days: 'Sex and the City'

By Jen Chaney

So you're dying to see "Sex and the City" this weekend, but you couldn't help but wonder: What else can my girlfriends and I do to put ourselves in a Carrie Bradshaw-state-of-mind before we catch a screening?

Strap on your Manolos and fasten your "Carrie" necklace because I have some suggestions about where to shop and where to grab a cocktail:

Shopping

Get your "Sex"-style fashion fix by browsing in the shops along Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase. Hop into Barneys New York Co-op and Christian Dior, then try on a few pairs of shoes at Jimmy Choo. (If you actually want to be able to purchase something, saunter down the street to the more (ahem) affordable Filene's Basement and Loehmann's.)

Cocktails

Now, let's get to what really matters: Where to have the requisite girly, pre-"Sex and the City" drinks.

If you have tickets at Gallery Place, head to IndeBleu or Oya.

Seeing the movie in Georgetown? Then hit the bar at Degrees, just a few steps away from the theater.

Venturing to Hoffman Center? Then pick your poison before or after the movie at PX or the Carlyle Club.

And if you visit the Majestic in Silver Spring, try Ceviche or one of the fine mojitos served at nearby Cubano's.

Need more ideas? Search for the theater of your choice, then click on the "what's nearby" links to find bar and restaurant options that are close to the movie house and, preferably, can be reached while walking in heels.
