Where to watch the Oscars

Still stuck on where to watch the 83rd annual Academy Awards this Sunday evening? No need to be a couch potato at home - try one of the many Oscar-watching parties all over town. Pick your Oscar winners and head to one of these events, and you could win a sweet prize, or, at the very least, some street cred.

Drink Oscar-themed cocktails and compare voting ballots at The Heights, or win gift certificates and T-shirts for predicting Oscar winners at Nellie's Sports Bar. If you live in Arlington, check out D.C. Film Society's "And the Winner Is..." party at Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse, which will be moderated by local film critics Joe Barber and Bill Henry. Zentan in the Donovan House also has happy hour specials and music from Red Carpet time on.

If your goal is to see and be seen, there are still tickets available for "Oscar Night America," the Academy-sanctioned black tie soiree at the National Museum for Women in the Arts. Alternatively, eat caviar tacos and foie gras while sipping champagne from your commemorative Oscar glass at the Jefferson Hotel's bar, Quill.
