Tonight, roam the halls of the National Portrait Gallery in the evening, sip native-to-Washington Rickey cocktails and listen to the sounds of DJ Natty Boom at the museum's after-hours party, Portraits After 5. The bash, which marks the end of the "Capital Portraits" exhibition, is adults-only (21 and older), making it a great date-night option. Intrigued? September is brimming with art events and exhibits; check out the Going Out Guide blog for highlights.
Portraits After 5 is free. Friday, Sept. 2, from 6-9 p.m. National Portrait Gallery, Kogod Courtyard, Eighth and F streets NW. 202-633-1000.
