Join us for the DC Trans Ladies’ Spring Soiree in Arlington, VA on April 23!

Join us for the DC Trans Ladies’ Spring Soiree in Arlington, VA on April 23!

Greeting ladies! Join the DC Trans Ladies Meetup group once again at Samuel Beckett’s, an Irish gastropub in Shirlington, Virginia for our spring Soiree event. Dress up to impress with your favorite flirty, spring dress or a similar chic ensemble, perhaps complimented with a new purse or other accent accessory to lend sparkle to the night. And you can savor Irish-themed food and drink offered by the establishment while socializing with friends.

The Sam Beckett’s management is excited to host our 4th event. We’ve had about 50 guests at our first two affairs with a smaller crowd at the holiday party. Beckett’s has an intimate atmosphere yet they can accommodate up to 70 of us!

As was the case last time, we will be getting separate checks and ordering off their standard dinner menu. Price range is moderate. Check out a typical dinner menu here: https://samuelbecketts.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Food-Menu-November-Draft-2.pdf

To attend the Spring Soiree, please join the DC Trans Ladies Meetup and RSVP to the spring soiree there. The soiree is from 7-11:30 p.m. Although the event states an end time of 11:30PM this is not a hard limit since Beckett’s is usually open to as late as 1 a.m. Everyone is free to mingle and chat after 11:30 — and we definitely hope you do!

Guests
Significant others are welcome! Please be sure to include them as your +1 when you RSVP. Please RSVP soonest as we need to update the venue with our numbers one week prior to the event.

Attire
We want to reinforce the goodwill produced at our first three events so we expect everyone to wear attire appropriate for a mainstream space. No fetish wear, please.

Parking
Shirlington has extensive, free, garage parking on weekends and evenings. Our preferred parking facility is the Quincy St. Garage at 2901 S Randolph St, Arlington, VA 22206. There’s a staircase to Randolph Street on the NW corner of the garage. This garage is just a two minute walk to the pub and has ample parking on all levels.

Drop-off Location & Entrance
The entrance to Sam Beckett’s is located on Campbell Street across from the Peet’s Coffee even though the address is 2800 S Randolph St. If you are getting dropped off, please use 4150 Campbell Avenue for closer access to the front door.

Feeling nervous?
If you’d like someone to meet you at your car and walk in with you, no problem! Just text Beth, and she (or another guest) will come out to walk you in and introduce you to the other ladies.

Lodging
The Hilton Garden Inn in Shirlington has rooms available from $140 and up. We don’t have any special rate negotiated so be sure to check out your discount options online when you book, e.g. use hotel chain points, AAA membership discounts, etc. It’s just a two minute walk from the hotel to the pub! Hotel website: https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/dcaasgi-hilton-garden-inn-arlington-shirlington/

COVID-19 Guidance
It would be prudent to bring a face mask for use outside or inside the restaurant as needed. Stay home if you’re feeling ill. Michelle and Beth have been fully vaccinated and anticipate that most of our guests will be too.

Makeup Artist
Elizabeth Taylor has one makeup makeover slot available on April 23 at 2 p.m. at her studio in Takoma Park, MD. You can book online at her makeover menu.

Missy: Off to Never Never Land

Missy: Off to Never Never Land

Melissa arrived decked out in daytime makeup and leather after spending the day strolling around Crystal City. We readily agreed to rock out to a Metallica playlist, kicking off with “Enter Sandman.” We updated her makeup to a dramatic smokey eye and MAC’s “Sin” colored lipstick for a nighttime vibe for heading to Freddie’s Beach Bar. In addition to standard studio shots with a gray background, Missy wanted some rocker chick pics against the brick wall. We looked up ideas online and one with blue side-lighting caught her eye. After some lighting experimentation, we captured the backstage look she was going for.

Jasmine Rocks!

Jasmine Rocks!

Jasmine decided to play to her punk rock side today during our makeover. We listened to 2000s hard rock music and took “backstage” photos in my studio.

Becki Channels her inner Business Woman

Becki Channels her inner Business Woman

Becki Ashley and I had a blast at her latest total makeover and photoshoot. This time we mixed things up a bit. Last time, Becki came to my studio for a makeup lesson, and she has been practicing a ton and going out on her own. This time, she did her makeup in advance so that I could critique it and glam it up. I was thrilled at Becki’s progress on her makeup skills. I amped up all the makeup colors, and we chose a longer, bolder false eyelash. Instead of shooting on a white paper background, we opted for the brick wall and stone floor of my studio using a single light to give a moody to noir-ish feel.

I continue to see clients six days per week at my private, discreet studio in LGBT-friendly Takoma Park, Maryland. I’m close to Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, and Baltimore. Check out my makeover menu here.

Hi everyone! I continue to be open for all services on my makeover menu including outings. Restaurants, bars, and clubs have started to reopen as COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. Mask-wearing is now optional in Maryland including Montgomery County and is at the discretion of each business. I have been fully vaccinated and am not requiring clients to wear masks during our sessions except as required by other businesses on outings.

I hope to see you for a makeover, photoshoot, and outing soon at my studio in Takoma Park, MD.
