Heist, the robbery-themed bar near Dupont Circle, is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Antwerp Diamond Heist this weekend. For $1500, you'll get one of three glamorous cocktails by mixologist Kristopher Carr, and each one will contain a loose diamond slightly bigger than a carat. One guest will be surprised with a heart-shaped diamond for $2k.

DJ Dirty Hands will drop the 1st installment of his mix tape series titled "The Diamond Mix," which is available for download on and HEIST's iPhone App.

Proceeds will benefitĀ Wake Up And Dream.

The three decadent cocktails:

Step 1 - Pallet Cleanser

Champagne Sorbet featuring Ace of Spades Brut Champagne and fresh grapefruit segments.

Step 2 - Main Course

Remy Martin XO Cognac, White Fig Jam and Chocolate Bitters. Garnished with a ripe fig that nestles a clean cut diamond

Step 3 - Dessert
