Not sold out: Boo at the Zoo, Fall Fete and Hirshhorn After Hours

By Fritz Hahn

Wednesday morning update: Hirshhorn After Hours is now sold out.

Normally, with just a few days left before the National Zoo's Boo at the Zoo, the Hirshhorn's After Hours party or the Corcoran's Fall Fete, we'd be telling readers: "Sorry, they're sold out. Try buying tickets earlier next time." And yet, as I write this, it's still possible to buy tickets for all three of these perennially sold-out events.

Certain tickets are gone: Boo at the Zoo, which runs nightly from Friday through Sunday, is completely full on Saturday night, and the pricey VIP tickets for the black tie-optional Fall Fete, which include pre- and post-parties at bars, have already been snapped up. But everything else is surprisingly still available.

Why the change this year? There was some incredulity in our office that the Hirshhorn was charging $18 not to see a big-name band but Fatback, an excellent local DJ crew that spins for free at Liv every month. And given the current economy, we assume some people will find it hard to front $100 for a night of dancing at the Fall Fete, even if that price includes four hours of open bar and a tour of the Corcoran's "Sargent and the Sea" exhibit.

A number of the Gurus have been to these events in the past, and we recommend them wholeheartedly. And this year, we're excited to be able to recommend them to readers as last-minute options, too. If you think you'd enjoy them, we still suggest buying your spots ASAP.

Have you gone to the Fall Fete or Hirshhorn After Hours in the past but aren't buying tickets this time around? Tell us about it in the comments.
