On Wednesday night,
The Washingtonian hosted On the Rocks, its premiere whiskey and fine spirits festival, at the Renaissance
Dupont Circle Hotel
. Guests sipped spirits from around the world, enjoyed entertainment
from a jazz trio, and tasted delectable fare. Amaryllis Floral & Event Design and
Digital Lightning transformed the Renaissance ballroom into a warm rustic environment.
Guest enjoyed the jazz trio provided by the Davis Event Group, watched a cigar-rolling
demonstration from a true pro, and snapped pictures in the Poshbooth open photo booth.
