Kristen Swenson McCoy and Erin Derge, aka the "gingers" in Ginger Root Design, know how to throw a fun party — and how to find the best of the best among local artisans. Tonight, they're hosting a vintage mixer to showcase their skills in both areas. They've scooped up Mimilah Vintage (you might remember the pop-up shop above Miss Pixie's) to take over the back room of the store, and they'll also debut a new jewelry vendor, Xyla. The takeaway? Expect lots of quirky frocks and colorful baubles, plus plenty of QT with other vintage-loving shoppers. Not bad for a Friday night.
When: Tonight, February 22, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: 1530 U Street NW; 202-567-7668.
