For young professionals who want more out of social events than same-old happy hours, the Smithsonian's Young Benefactors is one of the best programs in town. Yes, the Young Benefactors host meet-and-greets at bars, but members can also take advantage of private museum tours, concerts and galas, and there's plenty of socializing to be had. If you haven't made it out to an event, here's the perfect introduction: The Benefactors turn 21 with a party at the Embassy of Finland. The $45 tickets include cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a tour of the new exhibition about architect Eero Saarinen, and birthday cupcakes. There will be no door sales, so RSVP on youngbenefactors.org as quickly as possible.
