Jimmy Choos spice up your feet and help the pups

13 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Saturday afternoon lots of Jimmy Choos have been walked off by many passionate fashionistas in private reception room in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria. The invite-only event attracted shoe lovers and media (one doesn’t exclude the other), for the trend presentation by Karen Sommer Shalett, Editor-in-Chief of DC Magazine, and a chance to win a pair of Jimmys! Light bites and champagne were served. Ten percent of sales benefited Washington Humane Society.

March Martini Madness – MMM

13 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

It is very curious to me why you have to become mad particularly in March (even new season of “Mad Men” premiers in March), but it is what it is so we are officially allowed to do so. If you choose to go bananas by drinks, and martinis are your favorites, then it is your straight road to Bethesda Row. For the whole month of March, 10 restaurants there are offering their special Row-tinis for happy hour price all day long. Make your pick and visit  one, few, or all of them, – to eat and sip on your favorite.

Patrons can vote for the best Row-tini once a day on Facebook at facebook.com/BethesdaRow and enter to win a $500 dining certificate for up to ten guests from one of the participating restaurants at www.BethesdaRow.comThe winner will be randomly drawn from all entries on BethesdaRow.com.  The winner will be emailed directly and announced on Facebook by April 5, 2012. Dining certificate expires December 31, 2012.
