Things to Do

Where & When: What to Do Tonight

A look at the early days cinema, live jazz, and a charity happy hour on the docket

Celebrate 100 years of film in Georgetown with a summer cocktail reception at Tudor Place.  Stroll through the historic mansion and gardens while enjoying drinks and light refreshments, all to the scores from the early days of cinema. And for anyone who needs to rest a drink somewhere, vintage film equipment will be on display. A complimentary ticket to a feature at any AMC theater comes with admission. Tickets are $15 for nonmembers; 5:30 PM.

Stop by Alexandria’s Torpedo Factory Art Center for a night of live jazz with Reverie, a Northern Virginia jazz trio. The group specializes in standards and sees performances as a way to keep early jazz alive—and they’re all members of the Hot Society Orchestra of Washington. The group’s self-titled debut album came out in May. 7 PM; free.

Come for a charity fashion happy hour at Teatro Goldoni to benefit Best Buddies, a nonprofit dedicated to finding friendship, employment, and leadership opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. High Life Entertainment, Fresh of Georgetown, 1201 Salon, and other sponsors will be hosting a raffle with prizes including a VIP night out, a private shopping experience with Champagne & Cupcakes at Fresh of Georgetown, and a free membership and training session at Washington Sports Club. Drink specials include $6 martinis and $5 beers and Champagne, plus all-you-can-drink wine specials and free appetizers. 5 PM.
