Over 100 Georgetown stores, restaurants, and salons will be participating in this year’s “Fashion’s Night Out – Georgetown“. This is the fourth year of FNO which isn’t exclusive to DC. It’s actually a country-wide event being held in hundreds of cities. The event is one night only on Thursday September 6th from 6pm to 11pm. Check it out on Facebook and Twitter too.
Make no mistake, this event is to impress”. Here are some ideas on what to wear from the good people at Brightest Young Things. Too bad it’s gonna be 92 during the day tomorrow, otherwise it would’ve been perfect for busting out a cardigan. I’m gonna try to wear a light sports coat if it’s not too hot in the evening.
Here’s our picks for the top things to do and places to check out from the FNO-GT web site, and a map from MLDC to guide you on your path!
