Editors' pick

Night of Elegance


Editorial Review

For 18 years, the Positive Black Men Coalition has proclaimed the night before Thanksgiving the "Night of Elegance," an occasion for a dressy party with bands and DJs in a ballroom at the Hyatt Regency. This year's event once again features Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown and a strong supporting cast of R&B and old-school go-go bands, including Suttle Thoughts, and Bela Dona. The bill also features a lineup of "D.C. Kings of Comedy," with stand-up comics Joe Clair, Teddy Carpenter, Mike Brooks and Red Grant.

As you might expect: you need to dress to impress.

Discount hotel rooms are available for $79; more information is available on positiveblackmencoalition.com.
