The shopping event we’ve all been waiting for is fast approaching. This year’s District Sample Sale, the highly anticipated shopping extravaganza to benefit N Street Village, is just five days away. DSS offers awesome (we’re talking 90-percent-off awesome) deals on clothes, shoes, and accessories from some of DC’s most stylish boutiques: Muléh, Sassanova, Ginger, Tuckernuck, and so much more. And it’s all for a good cause—in the past six years, the event has raised close to $300,000 for various charities.

This Friday, July 20, marks the end of Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR, a ten-day motorcycle jaunt across the East Coast that raises awareness for HIV/AIDS research. The storied skin-care brand is celebrating the end of the ride by hosting the bikers at the Georgetown Kiehl’s store. From 6 to 8 PM, you can sample biker-inspired small bites by big-name chefs like R.J. Cooper, David Guas, Mike Isabella, and Robert Wiedmaier. If that’s not enough, the still-foxy Sharon Stone (how does she do it? Seriously.) will also be on hand to greet the bikers and raffle off a pair of tickets to the July 21 amfAR & GBCHealth’s Together to End AIDS Gala honoring Bill and Melinda Gates at the Kennedy Center. [Ed. Note: We’re almost done name-dropping. We swear. But still, pretty exciting, right?].
