Networking can be a major drag, but this week's DC Lady Bloggers event will make it a total blast. Join them on Friday for happy hour eats and drinks at Puro Cafe. (EventBrite)

Hide your wallets, because there's one amazing sidewalk sale going down in Bethesda today. The Shops at Wildwood will be offering up major discounts on duds from stores like South Moon Under and Belina Boutique. Plus, there'll be deals on all the shopping center's bars and restos, so you can make a day of it. (The Shops at Wildwood)
Lately, we've been feeling totally uninspired when it comes to home decor, and we've gotta make a change, stat. If you're in the same rut, check out this major apartment eye candy — we're going totally crazy for this local blogger's minimalist-meets-colorful abode. (The Fashionably Broke)
If you've been feeling a little guilty about all your spending as of late, take the chance to shop for a cause. Local nonprofit G.L.A.M. is hosting a fashion soiree featuring designs from the District's best local brands — and, all proceeds will benefit Safe Shores DC, a charity that works with children who have been abused. (G.L.A.M.)
If you're lucky enough to score summer Fridays at your 9-to-5, consider yourself one of the chosen few. Since early dismissal is so rare in the District, it would be a shame to let your afternoons go to waste — might we suggest getting happy hour started a little early? (Eater)
