Russian Machine Never Breaks: The Party

Front Page Arlington

Front Page Arlington

What makes a good party? Drink specials, good food, and great friends.  If you throw in a sashed pageant-winner, signed Caps gear, and the lovely facilities of Front Page Arlington, you’re entering Great Party territory.  That’s RMNB’s First Year Party for you.

Here are the deets. At 6PM, the doors of our party will open to the huddled masses.  Hopefully, we’ll keep everyone properly entertained until 12:30am – or whenever Michael Jenkins shows up and saves us after SportsNite. This party is an all-ages affair, but attendees under the age of 21 will have their hands X’ed in classic D.C. tradition.

There will be no underage drinking at the party. Front Page is doing us a solid by letting us hang out, so we’re going to follow their rules.  Besides, we can’t have people thinking our readers are a bunch of loudmouthed buffons.  That’s our reputation, and we’ve worked too hard to let you usurp it.

Front Page is gracious enough to let us occupy the Back Bar and the Atrium as well. Let’s show them the proper respect for allowing us to run our victory lap in their fine establishment.  Would have been a lot more fun if we had a Stanley Cup with us…

How about the food? The Front Page has created a special burger just for the party. For $9.99, you will be able to eat the Ovie Burger, which I can only assume will include Russian Dressing, 8 pickles & a spicy dipping sauce made from the tears of Max Talbot. If you’re saving your hard-earned money for the raffle, the Front Page will also be offering Happy Hour specials until 8pm. Check it out:

A good idea gone terribly, terribly wrong. (Sketch by Ian Oland)

Aiden Lipscomb is a 7-month-old baby boy with a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of muscle cancer. Aiden is on a 54-week chemotherapy regimen, which will be followed by radiation and further treatment.  As you can imagine, the medical costs are astronomical.  To help Aiden’s family afford to continue his treatment, an auction will be held tomorrow afternoon.

Aiden’s Auction
Saturday, July 31st
1PM – 4PM

National Conference Center

The silent auction will have a lot of items of interest to Caps fans.  There will also be a children’s book fair, jewelry, concessions, and delicious cupcakes.  There is a $5 entry fee, all of which will go directly to Aiden’s Recovery Fund.
