Friday evening, Tom and I attended the Activated! Art4All DC launch party at the new CityCenter downtown. The two-hour event was the first of a three-week series of events celebrating art in all four of DC’s quadrants. Tickets included two drink tickets and appetizers from CityCenter’s new restaurants DBGB Kitchen and Bar and Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse as well as spoken word performances, music, dancing and more.

It was a great event on a gorgeous night, emceed by the fabulous Nina Brewton. We enjoyed several of the appetizers and watched the performances while sipping our drinks. The launch party was just the beginning of this festival that included Art All Night on Saturday, and will continue with SW ArtsFest October 2nd through 5th and Porchfests in Adams Morgan and on Rhode Island Ave NE. Check them out and support local artists in DC!
