My inbox is overflowing from emails from almost every promoter in town! It's crazy how busy things get around the District when the most prominent HBCU has its homecoming. Here's your Thursday night:
Get here: At The Park at Fourteenth (920 14th Street NW) not only will Biz Markie be on the tables but (sexy fine) Lance Gross better known to me as ANTM's Eva's boyfriend. He's also an alum of Howard. They've extended the $5 cocktail special until 8 PM and the party goes until 3 AM. RSVP here.
Inner Loop Records is pushing a party at Felix Lounge (2406 18th Street NW) in Adams Morgan featuring one of my favs DJ Alizay. Ladies are free until 11 and there's an open bar until 11 PM.
Ibiza (1222 First Stree NE) is also opening it's doors tonight for HU Homecoming. If you like big clubs, head here although if the weather continues you can chill out on their wonderful rooftop lounge. 18 to enter and 21 to drink.
If you're into underground music, check out Zanzibar (700 Water Street SW) because Fertile Ground and Aniekan Udofia will be performing on Thursday night. Tickets are $18 in advance and $25 at the door. Call 301-537-1689 to get your hands on them. A portion of the proceeds will go to "Praise for the Cure", an initiative for breast cancer awareness.
Layla Lounge (501 Morse Street NE) will have $5 drink specials from 6-8 PM on Thursday night for those 21 and older. The party goes until 2 AM.
1223 (1223 Connecticut Ave. NW) is a little hood but it does offer an open bar from 9-11 PM on Thursday night. Everyone is free all night when you text 1223 to 313131.
