The WW Club: A DC Style Speakeasy
Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
UPDATE: We are happy to sell tickets at the door, they will be $15
And! We got you a sweet ride.
I'm excited to announce that we've teamed up with Uber to make tonight a truly swanky affair, and we're hooking up new riders with an exclusive $15 discount off your first ride. So that means you get to swag out for cheaper than a cab. True facts.
So what is Uber? Uber is a mobile app that instantly connects you to a professional private driver. In just minutes they'll pick you up and whisk you away in a swanky black car.
See you tonight. We're looking forward to seeing you arrive in style.

Gentlemen, we know you like to drink, and we know you don't mind getting dressed up to do it. Now, don't be coy...we know you love that feeling when you come out of the bedroom (or into it) wearing a sharp suit, perfectly fitted jeans, or your favorite vintage motorcycle boots and your honey goes all weak at the knees and threatens to take those right back off of you. We recognize that, and we want to celebrate it with a drink or four, speakeasy-style.
Ladies, we know you love whiskey and style as much as the gentlemen; come out and prove that women can do it just as well. There's nothing we love more than a sassy woman who knows her booze!
In an homage to the DC speakeasies of the past and present, stylist Elise Peterson and photographer Kate Warren bring you The WW Club, a speakeasy event to celebrate the rise of menswear and the ladies that love it as much as their gentlemen. But don't worry, we wouldn't have you get dressed up for no reason; get a little lush with a whiskey tasting served by a very sassy Whiskey Mistress. Your $10 gets you tickets to taste 3 of the available whiskies, but we are happy to sell more tasting tickets, and our bar will be quite flush and more than open.
Not sure what to wear? Style guru Elise Peterson and menswear designer Eliot Payne of Accoutre are creating a pop-up boutique and dolling out style advice with clothes from DC's best boutiques to help even the most style-challenged men get it right get it tight. We're partnering with style powerhouses:
and local rockstars Federal, Accoutre, Dr. K's Vintage, It's Vintage Darling, The Good Kin, and Ginger Root Design, to bring you some delectable styles to try. We know DC has some serious steez, and we're ready to see it, so step out and show off your speakeasy-worthy styles.
DJ Spinser Tracy will get you all hot and bothered, Cherrie Sweetbottom will take things over the top with a burlesque performance, and sultry songstress Alison Carney will be sure to drive you to drink even more. Don't worry, we have a bar for that once you're good and lubricated from the whiskey tasting. Kate of GoKateShoot will document the debauchery, doing what she does best, acting hostess and firing her camera up. Quincy Jones and the gentlemen of the new Prepster Punk will be coming in with a wild performance art piece that you won't want to miss. What does WW stand for? Come and find out. Get dressed, and let The WW Club tease you a little bit, DC.
