Party Like a Bond Star

Despite some less-than-glowing reviews for "Quantum of Solace," James Bond remains as much of a cultural force as ever. So if you're heading out to see 007's 22nd big-screen outing this weekend, you may want to make kstreet Lounge your Saturday night destination. The Shaken Not Stirred party has the touches you'd expect -- women painted gold to resemble Jill Masterson in "Goldfinger," movie ticket giveaways -- but some bonuses, like free martinis for the first 50 "Bond girls" and two hours of half-price cocktails, beginning at 7. (It's sponsored by Euronet, the professionals group that sponsors the annual James Bond New Year's Eve party, so they have the 007 thing down by now.)

Admission is $15 for men and $10 for women who RSVP to Suggested dress is Bond inspired: tuxedo or white dinner jacket for men, cocktail dresses or gowns for women. Dressing as your favorite Bond movie villain is also acceptable, if you have a spare Pussy Galore costume or metal-rimmed bowler hat taking up room in your closet. Doors open at 7, and the party runs until 11.
