Big news and big change are making its way to the historic Capitol Hill district.

Back in October 2015, Perseus Realty partnered with Javelin19 Investments to shell out 5.7 million dollars to acquire a hefty slice of property located on Pennsylvania Ave SE in the historic Capitol Hill District. This block has been home to local and family-owned shops like, Frager’s Hardware, which has been in operation since 1920. FLAMED-OUT FRAGER’S GETS A 30-UNIT, MIXED-USE MAKEOVER

The models stand topless (and nearly bottomless) in front of a room full of people, their skin the canvas for the artists of DC Creators.

Tonight’s theme is superheroes, and the models are getting decked out in strapless bustiers and thick, black chokers. If you thought Wonder Woman or Catwoman looked like their get-ups were painted on, these liquid costumes are the real deal.

The event is called Winter Soulstice, a body painting dance pARTy for models, painters and shutters, and it’s hosted by DC Creators. NUDITY? PSHAW! PEOPLE COME FOR THE ART!

HUSH, HUSH: DC’S BEST SPEAKEASIES

blackSo, you’re faced with another weekend in DC. What to do, what to do…

It’s no secret that DC has a world-class, foodie-approved list of things that you could fill a Friday night with. It’s also no secret that the best of that list involves alcoholic beverages. But sometimes, you want a little something different. Sometimes you don’t want to drop in at the neighborhood watering hole that is generous enough to offer PBR and a shot of house vodka for $5.00. Sometimes Tinder seems both mentally exhausting and indicative of having one finger that is just way more overworked than the others. Sometimes you want to swipe left on what you know and try something a little different. Enter DC’s speakeasy scene. HUSH, HUSH: DC’S BEST SPEAKEASIES

“There are also tons of built-ins, so if you see your significant other walking across the courtyard to visit you, you can quickly pick up all the piles of clothes and heaps of garbage on the floor and stuff it into various cubbyholes. Actually, better yet, let it all stay on the floor, so there’s no chance they’ll try and get you to move into the main house with them.”
