Put the scorchingly hot, swampy workweek behind you and grab your gal-pals for a night out on the town tonight. Historic Downtown Leesburg merchants play host to Girls’ Night Out, a ladies only event full of discounts, wine tastings and a free, live concert by Virginia-born and raised pop star Zahra Universe.
Red or white? Or red? No need to pick just one vino. Tonight, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, eight shops participating in “Farm to Fork Loudoun” will uncork some of their best bottles, including:
Bluemont Vineyard – Carter Braxton Properties
Corcoran Vineyards – Otter Creek Collections
Fabbioli Cellars – Cooley Gallery
Loudoun Valley Vineyards – Lou Lou
North Gate Vineyard – Savannah’s
Notaviva Vineyards – Rose Manor
Tarara Winery – Leesburg Vintner
Willowcroft Farm Vineyards – Creme de la Creme
On the musical side of things, guitarist Emily Guagliardi will be performing at Photoworks while guitar duo Steele & Oglevee strum together at The Cooley Gallery. As in Chris Cooley, Redskins’ very own tight end.
Head over to The Pink Shop at 6:30 PM to hear internationally-known recording artist Zahra Universe as she belts out her latest single “Dancin’ by the Fire” plus some of her other exotic, catchy tunes. Zahra, who pulls her musical inspiration from all around the world, has been dubbed “Princess” by the people in Cameroon, Africa, for the work she’s doing to promote HIV/AIDS education in the country.
Check out her red-hot video below for a sneak peak at tonight’s headliner.
Plus local massage therapy gurus Blue Lotus will be offering the chance to unwind and destress with f-r-e-e chair massages at their new location on King Street. Yes, please.
Bottom line: GNO, tonight can’t come soon enough!
