Last week, I went to the Gentleman Jack Art, Beats + Lyrics event held at the Mellon Auditorium in DC. I heard about it through one of my girlfriends and instantly RSVPed. I went to a Johnny Walker tasting at Mellon before and remembered how nice that was, unfortunately it didn’t make me like Johnny Walker anymore.
The Gentleman Jack event featured a tasting of Jack Daniels whiskey along with a hip hop performance and art inspired by the music. Oh and did I mention it was free?! I’m not much of a whiskey drinker but why turn down free drinks, besides they had some tasty Jack cocktails, I had a few whiskey sours. Apparently, this event goes from city to city, in hopes of introducing a “younger, more urban” crowd to the product.
At one point, random people started break dancing, which got the crowd hype. The girls and I enjoyed looking at all of the artwork which was actually for sale and ranged from $200-$3000 while partaking in some beverages and snacking on some tasty heavy hors d’oeuvres. It was definitely a fun-filled event and I look forward to when it comes back to the area. The photo to the right was my favorite piece, love the coloring.
So the night could’ve gotten more interesting because not only was my ex (the one I was snowed in with there) but I also ran into Mr. Right Guy Wrong Time. Haven’t communicated with him since he told me that he’d read my blog about him and he confronted me about it. Surprisingly it wasn’t awkward just a hug and a quick catching up convo. DC really is too small.
