A Liaison With the National Guard

Don’t be surprised if you see National Guard members roaming around the Hill on Monday. The National Guard Association of the United States will hold its Legislative Liaison Workshop during the day and meet with members on the Hill. The day will end with an invitation-only congressional reception in the evening.

The NGAUS is a nonpartisan association that represents nearly 45,000 current and former Army and Air National Guard members. Monday’s reception will allow members to meet with the organization’s representatives and learn more about the NGAUS and its efforts to obtain modern equipment, training, and benefits for its members.

The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Rayburn House Office building. If you’re lucky enough to have an invitation, be sure to RSVP to


A Taste of Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras may be a couple of weeks away, but it’s never too early to start celebrating. If you’re craving a taste of Louisiana, be sure to check out the Louisiana State Society’s King Cake Party on Tuesday Night.

Be ready to chow down on king cakes from Randazzo’s Camellia City, Rouse’s, and Haydel’s. Even if you don’t find the baby, you’ll be privy to an open bar from 7 to 8 p.m. and drink specials all night.

The party starts at 6:30 p.m. at The Mighty Pint, 1831 M St. NW. Tickets run $15 for society members and $30 for guests. Attendees must be 21 or older. Save your spot today at

Oscar’s Best Gala

Movies more your speed? Gear up for the Academy Awards at Tuesday night’s gala “And the Winner Is …,” hosted by Tracy’s Kids.

Put on your red-carpet best and work the cameras alongside hosts Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Reps. Mike Pence, R-Ind., and Lamar Smith, R-Texas. Then head inside to the movie-themed gala that’s guaranteed to be jam-packed with politicos, members of Congress, and other charitable Washingtonians. Watch as Barbara Grassley, wife of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is awarded the Courage Award. Finally, after the party dies down, sit down and relax with some popcorn and enjoy the Oscar-nominated films.

If a gala and good movies aren’t enough motivation to attend, the proceeds from the event will benefit Tracy’s Kids. The organization provides pediatric art therapy programs to cancer patients in the District and Northern Virginia.

The invitation-only gala takes place at Lucky Strike, 701 Seventh St. NW. The reception begins at 6 p.m. with the awards ceremony at 7 and screenings at 7:30. For more information, visit

A Closer Look at Medical Breakthroughs

Your Wednesday night looking bare? Join the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine for its Capitol Hill reception at the Rayburn.

The reception runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Rayburn’s Gold Room (2168). For more information, contact Rachel Marcus at

Oceanic Documentary

Boat and cocktails? No, not a booze cruise—it’s a movie screening. If your Friday night is looking lonely, be sure to join the Embassy of France’s Office of Science and Technology and Tara Expeditions for a special screening of the documentary The Big Bloom.

The night starts out with presentations about the Tara Oceans 30-month scientific voyage to waters across the world. Dr. Eric Karsenti, scientific director of Tara Oceans, will present the discoveries the mission has made concerning planktonic ecosystems, how they interact, and how they impact the environment. The presentation will be followed by a screening of the documentary—the third in the Tara Oceans series The Secret World. The evening will conclude with a cocktail reception.

The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Embassy of France, 4101 Reservoir Rd. NW. Registration is closed. For more information, visit
