Guess what? Tonight you can actually party hop on Wisconsin -- without hitting those college frat-boy hotspots. Instead, stop by chic boutiques for a special celebration and then a grand opening.
Washingtonian readers selected Urban Chic as the store with the "Best Trendy Clothes," according to this month's issue. So to celebrate this top shop honor, Urban Chic (1626 Wisconsin Ave. N.W.) is throwing a party tonight from 5-8 p.m. Head out to enjoy free champagne and 10 percent off all new merch. All attendees will also receive an exclusive code for $10-off tickets to Washingtonian's Best of Washington Party next Wednesday, July 15.
Meanwhile, a new sunglass boutique, Ilori (5330 Wisconsin Ave. N.W.), will celebrate its first D.C. outpost with a grand opening celebration at 7 p.m. The shop features designer brands like Dior, Chanel and Prada, as well as more moderately priced Ray-Bans. And until July 19, bring in any gently used pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses to be donated to OneSight to receive $50 off your purchase.
Go! Party! Shop! Spend! Drink! And recession be damned.
