Go Bare Tour Launch Party  
What’s not to love about a party that pairs up beauty with baked goodies? To kick off Bare Minerals’ national Go Bare tour, the cosmetics brand teams up with sweets shop Georgetown Cupcake, where a traveling team of beauty gurus will offer up complimentary make-unders and personalized beauty secrets.

The Great Gatsby Movie Party

Get dolled up in your most glam era attire (think deco beading and drop-waist dresses) then capture your fab ensemble in the photo booth down in the bank’s antique vault. Friday 8 to midnight. 1445 New York Ave., NW, 9th Floor. $40 through Eventbrite.
