Photos From Washingtonian & Mercedes Benz’s A-Class Launch Party

Washingtonian hosted an exclusive launch party in partnership with the Mercedes Benz of Arlington dealership in celebration of their new A-Class vehicle. Event attendees had the special opportunity to preview the new luxury cars at the dealership, which was transformed with exciting decor by Electric Events DC, and to treat themselves to delicious light bites provided by Root & Stem Catering. A live graffiti artist provided by Carbone Entertainment plus music from DJ Chris Laich kept guests entertained as they browsed offerings from Tiny Jewel Box and collected personalized tumblers from Pretty Mail Calligraphy.

Thank you to our sponsor: Mercedes Benz of Arlington.

Thank you to our event partners: Electric Events DC and Root & Stem Catering.
