There is plenty of fun to be had this weekend in Washington! Be sure to check out our calendar page for more parties and events.
February 14th is coming. I think we all know what that means- pink hearts everywhere, candies, overpriced menus and pointless gifts. Lucky you, right? Well, that's only if your one of the obnoxiously cute couples prancing around Central Park. So ladies, instead of boycotting all of the Valentines Day hoopla this year, how about picking up a V-day date? We've round up the best bars to pick up your type of guy. More»
Despite the freak snowstorm DC endured Saturday, the night was setup for success with a 17-bar lineup and $5 Red Bull & Barcardi Torched Cherry Bombs. With girls freezing in their teeny costumes while waiting on hour long lines (ie. Sign of the Whale), everyone was excited to warm up on the dance floors next to plenty of funky, fuzzy and downright scary identities. Although McFadden's had their own costume contest, we compiled our collection of favorite costumes from the crawl. And while the bar crawl claimed to be a "nightmare" of a night, all the attendees would agree with me in saying the hangover was a way worse nightmare, unless you took advantage of bottomless mimosas at Sunday morning brunch.
In this city beers can cost up to $14, but don't worry, we've got you covered. We've made a short list of bars with the cheapest beer in the city. So, if your looking to get sloppy drunk for a few bucks- go gather your change and hit the town ALL WEEK with our list. We promise cheap drinks but don't expect class. More»
School is back in session, and that means you have to be prepared to drink. If you value your social reputation that is. Unfortunately, in college, your cool factor is directly proportional to your social visibility. This fall, whether you're a college student, or you just want to party like one, we've got you covered.

Sunday's storm has left some areas of D.C. still without power. Don't panic and don't open your fridge. We've got to get creative here and revert back to the bygone days of life without computers and TV. Frightening, we know, but here's your chance to do all of the things in D.C. you keep pushing off to do with all of those friends who keep promising they'll visit... More»
There's been a lot of finger pointing and frayed nerves surrounding Friday's kick-off of the 2010 World Cup -- and the early morning bar hours that are set to come along with it. More»
I have to hand it to a place like McFaddens. Located in one of the most vile areas of the city (42nd and 2nd), the place has continued to serve the needs of many recent graduates living in the Murray Hill area. It's got everything needed for the makings of a successful bar: the Irish theme, cheap drinks, food, and a rocking website complete with numerous applications for you to play around with. The problem with a place like McFaddens is that on any given night, 50% of the patrons are going to be douche bags that ruin it for everyone else (see examples in thumbnails below). But, then again, what place DOESN'T have DBags? These guys may actually be smarter than their high rolling 27th street counter parts spending $2k on those bottles and "models" downtown. At least when they wake up alone they only have a bar tab of $20.
What's a young, Murray Hill, finance guy to do? I mean really?

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
