We write about our fair share of charity date auctions in Nightlife Agenda, and the contestants bios tend to have a similar ring: They're new to the D.C. area, they work at a nonprofit, they had great graduate school experiences and they love marathons and sampling new places and cuisines. You'll find very different date candidates at Sova's Date Auction for Haiti, which benefits Doctors Without Borders. The people up on the auction block include DJ Gavin Holland of Nouveau Riche and See You Next Tuesday; Washington City Paper beer columnist Orr Shtuhl; ukulele player-singer Maureen Andary from local indie-folk group the Sweater Set; Sticky Rice karaoke host Andrew Herndon; and stand-up comedian Mike Way. Rest assured that you wont get the standard dinner-date with any of them " not that you'd want it. (Tip: Arrive before the auction starts for half-price beer and wine beginning at 5 p.m.)
