3 weekends in the D: Party Your Way Through July

ICYMI our girl C-Money was on Fox 2's "the Nine" this morning talking about the hot spots in the D over the next few weekends. I know a lot of people spent time traveling over the 4th of July, so it's time to catch a little recoup in the city. Fear Not, we've got the party deets covered right here on le blog.
