Alas, these two iconic entertainers won't be meeting in the flesh tonight in D.C., but all night long only music by Mary J. Blige and Grace Jones will be spun at the "Hail Mary Full Of Grace" party at Marvin's, a new bistro and lounge in the Shaw neighborhood.
DJ Jahsonic of the Soul Controllers on WPFW 89.3 FM is starting his new residency at Marvin's with this MJB and Strangé event that sounds like its going to be pure fun. As for Marvin's, this spot has been on our radar since it opened in October--it's name and menu both inspired by Washington, D.C. native son and soul legend, Marvin Gaye.
Hail Mary Full Of Grace is free for those 21 and up and starts at 9:30 PM. Marvin's is located at 2007 14th Street, NW.
