In case you haven’t heard, due to Hurricane Sandy the 17th Street High Heel Race has been postponed to Thursday November 1. Thursday night will be the night that the neighborhood waits for every year… it’s the 26th Annual High Heel Race. The festive and highly competitive event will take start on 17th Street NW between P and R Streets at 9 pm sharp. Pre-race festivities (the parade of costumes leading up to the race — check out last year’s photos) begin around 6 pm.

Last year’s event boasted of more than 60,000 people, and not even a hurricane will stop DC’s die-hard divas and fans from racing and cheering this year. Remember ladies and gentlemen: Your heels must be at least 2 inches high or you will be ineligible to win. Registration will be in front of Cobalt (1639 R Street NW) starting at 6 pm.

The one thing that remains in schedule is the Cool-off  party at Cobalt for the official High Heel Race After Party turned into Pre-High Heel Race Party on Tuesday night. DJs Jason Royce and Madscience will provide the entertainment upstairs and in 30 Degrees. So get ready for the race and partying on Thursday night.

We hope to see you all OUT on Thursday!
