From DC’s creative cosmos exhibition at Artechouse to the always delicious South Beach Food & Wine Fest, here’s where you’ll find us this winter.

To the Moon and Back

Artechouse perpetually pushes the limits of what’s possible at the intersection of art and tech, but its latest exhibition is truly on another level. In a truly out-of-this-world partnership, Artechouse and NASA came together to create Beyond the Light, which puts patrons into space with a first-of-its-kind NASA-inspired exhibition. The exhibition brings audiences into a 360-degree view of the cosmos, in an experience that simultaneously provides inspiration and education. If only our science class had been like this back in our school days. And, of course, it wouldn’t be an Artechhouse exhibit without creative cocktails. Download the app and watch your space-themed drink (including StarDust, Cosmic Cliffs, Pandora Cluster, Love Letter, Dwarf Stars) come to (artificial) life. Artechouse DC: 1238 Maryland Ave SW, Washington, DC 20024

Cold Comfort

We’re into that part of winter where going out seems like a big lift, but luckily DC’s annual Winter Restaurant Week is giving us plenty of (delicious) reasons to take off our soft pants and leave the house. This year, we’ve got new restaurants Phillipe Chow and Casa Teresa on our must-dine list. At Phillipe Chow, diners can enjoy chef Philippe Chow’s lavish, Beijing-style cuisine––featuring dishes like chicken satay, special prawns and their decadent red velvet and chocolate layer cake. Chef and visionary Rubén García opened his hotly anticipated restaurant and tapas bar downtown in November. Recently lauded in a rave review in The Washington Post, Casa Teresa’s Restaurant Week menu will include dishes like tortilla de patatas, jamón Ibérico de bellota, pá amb tomàquet and tarta de queso.

The Need for Speed

The Washington Convention Center hosts the annual Washington DC Auto Show every year and it’s back this January. We’re going to look at the vintage and exotic cars, learn about the future of electric vehicles and, this year, the Art of Motion exhibit, which pairs muralists and local artists with featured automobiles to turn them into works of art. Washington Auto Show: Jan. 19-28, Walter E Washington Convention Center, 801 Allen Y. Lew Place NW

Cheers to South Beach

A world-renowned wine and food festival on one of the best beaches … in February? We’re already packed. Jet to Miami in February for the annual SoBe Wine & Food Festival, featuring more than 105 culinary events, tons of talent (including practically the entire on-air chef roster from Food Network), and, of course, lots of frolicking by the beach. SOBEWFF: Feb. 22-25.

Model Behavior

Level up your street style and we’ll see you in NYC this February for Fashion Week. From the runway shows to the fashion panels to the parties, New York Fashion Week is the only place to be in the world Feb. 9-14. Over 70 designers will be in the mix, including old guard returning designers like Carolina Herrera, Coach and Proenza Schouler–with Thom Browne closing out the week.
