WARM UP TO WINTER
Winter, here: the LINE DC is your central location for city-wide exploration, and where locals and travelers alike gather over local art, cultural events, and dining experiences. From Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day (and until the first Cherry Blossom takes bloom) – you’ll come for the night, but stay for the season.
CHINESE NEW YEAR
The annual lion dance and New Year’s blessing will take place in the lobby between 8PM and 10PM (exact time TBD – such is the nature of lions), and Brothers And Sisters is celebrating with a special $30 prix fixe dim sum menu to ring in the Year of the Rat. Stop by Spoken English for special menu items (including Salt & Pepper Squid, and Salt & Ash Baked Fish) for the New Year, and don’t forget: come early, bring the fam, and wear red for good luck.
THE NEXT VACATION
Think warm thoughts: Pastry Chef Pichet Ong’s cakes take inspiration from his travels across the globe. Daily standbys include the towering, layered Brooklyn and the conical cream cheese Mykonos, while “The Next Vacation” special is an ever-rotating offering, inspired by new destinations and far-flung adventures.
Just in time for winter chill, stop in for the latest: the Kona. Kona coffee chiffon, pineapple three ways, brown butter crepes, and a macadamia nut crush. Inspired by the Hawaiian islands, this trip is guaranteed to take you away.
VALENTINE'S AT A RAKE'S PROGRESS
VALENTINE'S AT BROTHERS AND SISTERS
The Heartbreakers’ Ball is Transformer DC‘s annual Valentine’s tradition, celebrating a true and deep love of the city’s emerging artist community.
Join us at the LINE DC from 7PM – 11PM on V-Day to sing a little Heartbreakers’ Karaoke, shop new works from Transformer’s epic and all-local FlatFile art (featuring new work from 40+ artists), and more (AKA tunes, drinks, and loads of candy).
This event is 21+. Tickets are $25 per person and $40 per couple, with proceeds supporting Transformer’s continued work connecting & promoting emerging artists, and providing artistic exploration to the DC community and beyond. Now more than ever, Transformer’s programming is essential for the creative community.

LOVE IS ON THE AIR
Valentine’s is on air: drop in from 5PM – 8PM on 2/14 to get on the mic with the Full Service Radio. They’re recording three minute V-Day segments with all who come through, from audio personal ads and missed connections to any little out-loud love note – all’s fair in love and air time.
Guests will receive their recording later via email, and you can opt in for inclusion in a Full Service Radio cut of the highlights and hits from the night, which can be streamed at fullserviceradio.org.
