Feeling a little bummed out by this gray, dreary day? You're not alone — we've got a little case of cabin fever, too. But don't fret: The monthly Shirlie's Girls Night Out goes down in two days, and you don't want to miss this one. Want to make your own perfume? For $10, you can whip up an olive-oil-based concoction and personalize it with your favorite essential oils. Or you can attend the launch of author Wendy Higgins' latest tome Sweet Peril — the first 100 guests will snag a free copy. So make plans to hit the Village at Shirlington on Thursday for a whole night of freebies, culinary events, shopping discounts, trunk shows, and more. Plus, what better way to cure the rainy day blues than making fun plans?
When: Thursday, May 2, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Where: Shops at The Village at Shirlington, Campbell Avenue, Arlington; 703-379-0007.
