The 5pm Post – Masquerade Ball at Looking Glass Lounge Sun. and National Inventors Day Fri.

“If you thought you could take your date out on Valentine’s Day without a hangover looming over your dining experience, think again. Looking Glass Lounge (3634 Georgia Ave, NW) is proud to afford you the opportunity to smell like the whiskey and beer you drank the night before at our 2nd annual Masquerade Ball. That’s right folks. February 13th is the day of our Black Heart Masquerade Ball. Masks will be provided for a small fee but if you have one of your own, bring it on! There will be drink specials, dancing and tons of fun. Musical guests to be announced.”

National Inventors Day

From a press release:

“On Friday, February 11 inventors from around the country are coming to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. for National Inventors Day, where they will be pitching their products in an American Idol style to TeleBrands Founder and CEO AJ Khubani and a panel of judges.

A cross between “American Idol” and “The Apprentice”– each inventor has 5 minutes to pitch TeleBrands CEO AJ Khubani and a panel of judges. Products will range from kooky (“what were they thinking?!”) to practical (“why didn’t I think of that!!”) and the pitches will be attention-grabbing. With names like Need a Buddy, The Unique Seat, and The Hand Band, we’re sure to have some fun.

WHEN: Friday, February 11, 2011
WHERE: The National Press Club
529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor”
