In the past we’ve brought you the list of holiday parties to crash, but this year a friend of our has done it better – keeping a regular list of events to crash in DC around the year – so we are deferring to him.  Go here and check out the list of holiday parties and go crash them!




We always try to keep people up on the events going on around town, so check the blog for other events after the Holiday Season. And if you know of something going on and would like to spread the word, let us know. Send what you have to and we’ll let it be known.

Crash Away!

Here are the events we know about so far…
We don’t promise you’ll get into all of these, but you can try. Give it a shot, what the hell.
And if you know of any events that should be on this list, please send them to us at

Well keep updating as we hear about more of these, so check the blog regularly, and we’ll update them on the podcast, too, so give that a listen next time.
