Vernon Davis Celeb Weekend | Layla Lounge | H20 | Republic

Carl Thomas and the most going out engaged man ever Roger Mason will be hosting H20 (800 Water Street SW) tonight.

One of the hottest tickets tonight is a new spot, Layla Lounge (501 Morse Street NE). It's part of Vernon Davis' Celebrity Weekend, which means you'll probably see b-list celebs like Serena Williams, Vernon's former Terrapin teammate Shawne Merriman, his 49ers teammates Moran Norris, Delaine Walker, Kentwan Balmer and Ray McDonald, Playboy Model Joy Glass, Dawn of Danity Kane (will she have new weave?), Big Tigger, Kevin Durant and many more.

Also, Republic Gardens (1355 U Street NW) is opening back up to reclaim its post on the U Street scene. It's kind of remodeled, I heard the pool table is gone (Noooo! That was one of its best features) but the groove should be the same. This is another hot ticket...don't come here busted! 

 Lastly, check out these spots if you just want to have a good time away from too many socialites: Sidelines (800 Capital Center Blvd, Largo, MD), Tabaq Lounge (1336 U Street NW) and Penang (1837 M Street NW).
