Rocktoberfest | Josephine Lounge | YouthAids | Tantra - What a weekend!

Rocktoberfest Josephine Lounge YouthAids Tantra Tuscana - What a weekend!

Welcome to Monday everyone!

It was another amazing and insane weekend with LITON EVENTS. After multiple rooftop networking parties and gallons of champagne, it was finally Friday. Yes for us the weekend is just another day of the week.

So on Friday, after stopping by Pasara Thai for some Thai Coffee to keep us going through the night we headed into the city. Of course on every one's agenda was the massive Rocktoberfest party thrown by none other than Michael Saylor at the Ritz Carlton in Foggy Bottom. I think everyone who was anyone was in attendance for this event, tons of local bloggers and DC socialites rounded out the guestlist.

The theme was rock n roll and I think everyone came out in their 70-80's best rock star outfits..eyeliner and all. The music was provided by Burnt Sienna and Mr. Greengenes. Mr Greengenes rocked it out I must say, with lead man taking to the mountain of speakers. For this event the usually drowsy Ritz Ballroom was transformed into something out of Studio 54, courtesy of our man Freddie! Amazing job Freddie. Sadly we had to part early and head to Josephine to get ready for the after party.

As guests from the Ritz began arriving at Josephine we had the privilege of having a very special pop in to party with us. None other than Mr. Washington Capitals - Alex Ovechkin, we enjoyed having Mr. Ovechkin spend the evening with us. He was fresh off his feature in OnTap Magazine, it was another amazing Friday with DJ Dove from NYC rockin the main room.

After a quick late night session it was a quick nap and back up for a meeting and house party with a certain Mr. Late Night. Well we made it to the meeting but the house party, not so much. During the meeting it was interesting turn events, that we will visit on a later post. After handling that situation we headed over to Tysons Corner for the Youth Aids event we mention in earlier post. Capitol File Magazine and Tysons Galleria had teamed up to YouthAids, for this charity event. For the event 26 luxury brand stores particiapated in giving 10% of their sales for the day to the charity. It was a fabulous event with Lebanese Taverna providing tasty treats for shoppers and supports of this event.

As the evening progressed it was time to head back to city to begin prepping for the Saturday Night ritual at Indebleu, in case some of you haven't noticed their have been a few changes in Tantra Lounge. Former General Manager Mood B. had moved to Current Sushi, and former Play Lounge manager Raj stepped in as the GM at Tantra Lounge. This weekend was sadly Raj's last weekend as Mehdi from K Street Lounge took over General Manager duties this weekend. So expect some new changes and faces at Tantra Lounge in Chinatown.

On another note, we had the chance to pop in K Street's newest party. Saturday Nights at Tuscana Lounge, hosted by none other than Mr. K Street nightlife himself Masoud A. This party remind us of the old days with Barbari on the turntables and a valet line 20 cars deep. It was truly a amazing night, with tons of familar friendly faces and staff you it felt almost like Diva..oops I am dating myself..but good times by all...see you all on Wednesday....

My personal highlight of the weekend......4 AND 1 BABY!!!!! GO SKINS!!!!
