Masks and Mischief at GLOE’s Purim Party

HamentashenThe DC JCC's Kurlander Program for Gay & Lesbian Outreach and Engagement — aka GLOE — presents its fourth annual Masquerade and Mischief Purim Party, featuring performances by the DC Cowboys, a "Purim spiel," and music by DJ jame' foks. Purim celebrates the Jews who were spared execution by Persian leader Haman in biblical times. It calls for dressing up — "especially drag, of every kind!" — and serious drinking. Which is why tickets include an open bar with beer, wine and champagne cocktails. And then their are the Hamentshen, triangle-shaped pastries stuffed with fruit, generally prunes, or poppy seeds. Saturday, March 19, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Washington, D.C.'s Jewish Community Center, 1529 16th St. NW. Tickets are $25. Call 202-518-9400 or click here.
