Getting Up Guide: Flowery cocktails; underground Czech rock
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Wednesday:
Flower Cocktail Hour
At the Gibson's Flower Cocktail Hour, guests will sip cocktails and learn the staples of posh party-hosting: making their own drinks and their own take-home floral arrangements. The bar will roll out a cocktail station (with sparkling wine, liqueurs and fruits) so guests can try their hand making a champagne cocktail of their own. Reservations are required; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request a spot. (UPDATE: This event is full).
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
Making its Kennedy Center debut, the all-male troupe shows off the fun side of dance with a parody on classical ballet and modern dance with a performance at 8 p.m.
Uz Jsme Doma and Zuby Nehty
Czech avant-rockers Uz Jsme Doma are headlining the Black Cat tonight, but as far as their opening act goes, how's this for street cred? Zuby Nehty is an all-female Czech underground rock group that was forced to change its name after being blacklisted by the Communist government in the early 1980s. The cloak-and-dagger set begins at 9 p.m.
