When effervescent champagne meets fresh orange juice, the results can be intoxicatingly delicious. But Mimosa March, a mid-October bar crawl, elevates the classic beverage to new levels. Participants make their way to six Dupont Circle bars?including hotspots such as Buffalo Billiards and Irish Whiskey?to sip six imaginative variations on the standard mimosas they may have tasted at weekend brunches or whilst swimming alongside a newly-christened boat, jug of orange juice in tow. Mimosa Marchers also get event photos and discounts on food and additional drinks. A portion of proceeds will benefit local charities.

When you hear the name "Washington Auto Show," you might expect to see some new vehicles. However, the name alone doesn't capture the scope of this massive event. At the largest expo of its kind in the Washington area, more than 700 makes and models from 42 manufacturers will fill the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, beckoning guests to take a closer peak or even take one out for a spin. Featured exotic vehicles range from the most expensive to the least expensive, giving visitors a chance to see a wide variety of cars. In the midst of all the motors, visitors will also find celebrities, and many of them. Depending on the day, you might spot WWE superstar Randy Orton, Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson, or Washington football legends Dave Butz, Charles Taylor, and Mark Moseley. Visit on Tuesday for Military Tribute Day, and enjoy a performance by the 257th Army Band, The Band of the Nation's Capital, and a visit from Star Wars characters including Darth Vader and R2D2, presented by the American Red Cross. Throughout the week, visitors can also hangout with the Angry Birds at the family-friendly event.
