Awesome #AprilMESmixer by @Metro_Events at @IrishWhiskeyDC

This past Tuesday, Metro Event Specialists hosted their April #MESmixer at Irish Whiskey! Being a Board Member for MES, DJ Neekola went out to the Irish pub for a fun night of awesome networking with the best professionals in the event industry DC has to offer!

Run by the amazing duo, Max Major (DC’s best magician – and most eligible bachelor!) and Troy Francis (Troyal Events), the mixer started at a large bar immediately entering Irish Whiskey. With Social Tables checking everyone in flawlessly, you were immediately welcomed into a bustling room full of energetic people, ready to meet everyone!

  Meant 2 Live Foundation and Impact Marketing and Events owner, Eddie Fam, had a place in the corner where the Metro Events people were collecting gently used smart phones, business attire, and business accessories for people in need in the DC area.

  Downstairs, Irish Whiskey had another bar that reminded me of an almost speak-easy atmosphere. Upstairs, the pub supplied a delicious array of warm pretzel bites with spicy mustard and sweet “drunk” donuts!

@Pelonkey’s @DJCharity Spins for @STKWashDC’s #UnmiSTKable Party at #Intermix

Pelonkey‘s lovely DJ Charity performed for an in-store event at Intermix, a high-end clothing shop in Georgetown. Featuring the sneak preview of the brand new STK steak house and lounge in DuPont, the event featured high-end cocktails and fanciful appetizers to tantalize DC’s chic fashionistas to come out. DJ Charity spun some awesome beats for the ladies and gents, all coming to find out exactly what the scoop was with STK and to do some fabulous shopping at Intermix. Thank you, Steve Vansickle, for the awesome photo of DJ Charity below!

Charity at Intermix

Event hosts Fran Holuba, Anchyi Wei, Kelly Collis, and Megan Salvaggio presented a fabulous cocktail party inside the store, offering all insight to the new attitude STK would bring to DuPont dining starting Arpil 24th. Charity enjoyed playing girly and bright tunes, mixing in high-energy dance to get the shoppers in the party mood, especially since 10% of all sales purchases from Intermix went to benefit UNICEF.
