Norooz 2007: DC

Hello, DC, you hotbed of Iranians. Norooz festivities everywhere are mostly over, but in case you, like us, spent most of this weekend either imbibing with our Irish brethren (like Iranians, their wariness of the British lingers and they like to dance) or trying not to slip on ice (damn this unpredictable Northeastern weather), there are a couple of mid-week activities to make up for missing the fun this weekend.

First up is the party at MCCXXIII on Tuesday night (print out the flyer and you get in free before 11, plus there’s an open bar from 10-11), which happens to be the night the year changes. If you’re too busy eating sabzi polo ba mahi with your family, watching your Norooz goldfish to make sure it sees its reflection when the year changes, there’s Wednesday night’s Norooz party at Lima Lounge, which is free all night and has a couple of open bar slots. Both events have DJ Barbari (best DJ handle ever?) spinning Persian music, among other things.
