A Special New Year's Eve Block Party at 14th and U Streets


Editorial Review

On Dec. 31, you'll be able to get an early look at Patty Boom Boom, a Jamaican-themed restaurant and nightspot from Thievery Corporation's Eric Hilton that is opening soon at 1359 U St. NW. A $20 ticket will get you into a joint New Year's Eve party at Patty Boom Boom and sister bar Marvin, which sits just around the corner on 14th Street. Here's the kicker: Entertainment comes from DJ Keenan, vocalist Sleepy Wonder and, coolest of all, a set by Mr. Hilton himself.
