MLK Weekend Continued | Trendsetters at Cafe Asia | The Park | The Lounge at Station 9

The Third Annual Movers, Shakers & Tastemakers event is poppin' off on Sunday (1.20.08)! Chee Chee & Cheeky along with The Usual Suspectz (shout to to Brandon!) among others are hosting this event at The Lounge @ Station 9 (1438 U Street NW)...never been here but it's a U Street establishment so it should be okay. Sources tell me it actually used to be the old Post Office building so it's very big with high ceilings...kinda hot. See pic below:

A portion of the proceeds will go to the MLK Memorial being built on the National Mall, so it's a good cause. Check it out, if you're not too worn out from Saturday night.

So a new entertainment group is trying to take over Cafe Asia (1720 Eye Street) on Sunday (1.20.08). I guess the owners are getting greedy but Charles and Lanre of Trendsetterz Ent. are throwing a party on DT's stomping groups called One Night Stand.

Promising a good time, Charles says there will be a lot of giveaways, Angie Ange from WKYS will be in the building and he says, "when the guests come in they'll have something nice waiting for them". I tried to squeeze more info outta' him but that's all he would tell me.

It's the young party thrower's first solo event. Charles of TE grew up in PG County and attends Morgan State...he's bringing a lot of his Bmore crew with him to Northwest DC this Sunday.

Find out for yourself. It's free before 11 if your RSVP here.


This is not a Fab! endorsed event but I won't lie and say I'm not curious. The Park at 14th (920 14th St. NW) is truly a gorgeous venue but the crowd is typically...shall we say, less than brown, which isn't a problem but if you're looking to thug it out...don't come here.
