Call it the perfect trifecta, the ultimate trio. Tonight at The Cooley Gallery guests will experience all three as Girl’s Night Out commences. With 3 Fox Vineyards providing the vino and MC2 Confections bringing the chocolate goodies, it’s a fabulous way to unwind from a long work week while browsing through the Gallery’s latest work.

Richard Busch’s “Hippie” photos are still on display this month. The former LIFE magazine staffer/photographer captured the shots during the ’60s and ’70s and his collection demonstrates the original flower power.¬†Justin Rothshank’s pottery is also available for viewing. His ceramic work has been shown across the world as well as in publications like Ceramics Monthly, The Log Book and Studio Potter.

Happy Hour: Northside Social Goes Vintage

Is there anything better than a midweek wine shindig?

We didn’t think so.

Lucky for us all, the folks at Northside Social feel the same way. Next Tuesday, September 20th, they’ll be hosting their monthly Vintage: Vinyl & Vino, a time when the music is old-school and so is the wine. Head over to the Arlington’s resident indie coffeehouse to join in the retro rumpus.

One of DC’s spinning masters, DJ Illogic, will be bringing the jams – playing downtempo/dub and yes, some old-school hip hop, completely transforming the upstairs floor into a dance-your-cares-away loft. Northside’s general manager and head sommelier, Alison Christ, is handling all things wine-related, pouring glasses from their top bottles.

Mark your calendars: it’s getting social next Tuesday night in the wine bar.
