Breaking the bubble:
AURA Nightclub, Grand Opening: D.C.’s newest nightclub is set to open today. The “lounge” is located at 2147 P Street NW in Dupont Circle, only a six minute cab ride from Georgetown. Plus, it is a masquerade theme which makes everything more fun! The club is 18+ and for those underage, tickets are only $10. The 21+ tickets do not cost much more at $15 each. AURA is allegedly the home of the biggest dance floor in DC… Sounds like a night you won’t want to miss!
D.C. Independent Film Festival: Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for: the D.C. Independent Film Festival will begin on February 19th, with viewings every day until the 24th.

However, a One Day Pass comes to approximately $50, and a Full Festival Pass (for all four days) is $140. If you’ve got a little extra cash, this is worth it.
