(June 10) HERE COMES SUCCESS It’s ladies night at Washington’s Hotel Palomar, but the gents are invited to take part too. International not-for-profit Dress for Success hosts an all-woman, multimedia art exhibit and auction tonight from 6 to 9 at the hotel’s Art Registry on P Street in Northwest, Washington. The benefits go toward promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women.

(June 10) NAZARIN IN THE NORTHWEST You can catch a couple reels of classic Mexican celluloid tonight at the Inter-American Development Bank in Northwest Washington. A defrocked priest searches for peace in Nazarin, the international prizewinner at 1959’s Cannes Film Festival.

(June 10) TORPEDO TARGET And if your day was pedestrian, you can heat up your night at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria. The Second Thursday Art Night tradition continues at the gallery on Union Street, where you can catch live music while interacting with featured artists and refreshments. Two virtuosi Latin American paper artists will also be on hand at the free event.
