    A date with NFL record-holder and former Redskin Brian Mitchell can be a bit pricey.

    The pro-footballer was one of about a dozen bachelor and bachelorettes up for auction at the Tigerlily Foundation's benefit date auction last night at the Josephine Lounge.

    Lucky lady Robinette bid top dollar for the athlete -- shelling out $260 for a night on the town with Mitchell. 

    "If I don't go for 1,000 pesos, I'm going to be upset," said bachelor Matthew Hebert, director of special events at E. Lund Entertainment.

    After a bidding war, his date was out $105 and he was planning a night on the town.

    Then there was Larrion Dalton, a world traveler who kisses on the first date, and Dr. Alex Naimi, a dentist who said one of her favorite spots was Georgetown Cupcake.

    Former D.C. United player Domenic Mediate "just wanted someone to bid" on him although he claimed this was his last date auction because "some of [his] previous experiences have been pretty scary." He planned to take his date to Fogo de Chao.

    One of the surprises of the night was the opportunity to bid on Tigerlily founder Maimah Karmo, who ended up fetching more than the $200 she thought she was worth. "I'm hoping we'll get to have sushi on our date," she said.
