Replay at Pose
Yesterday while I was the National Harbor, I went to Pose for their 80’s themed pop-up Replay. Pose is the rooftop bar in the Gaylord National Harbor. I felt like I stepped into the Max on an episode of Saved by the Bell. The retro decor definitely takes you back to the good old days. They feature specialty themed cocktails. I had the frosé which was really good and the views from the rooftop are amazing! Highly recommend stopping in soon. I’m not sure how long this theme will last.
Inside the Wardrobe
Inside the Wardrobe is a fashion funhouse pop-up in Georgetown with over 20 themed rooms. This place is definitely instaworthy. I was able to cop tickets right before it closed last week 😩. I’m mad I wasn’t able to go sooner so I could tell you all about it. The space was actually larger and had more exhibits than I anticipated. The exhibits were creative and unique. I appreciated the photo booth stations. The kaleidoscope and runway were my favorite. After going to Selfie Wrld with the Selfie stands, I just feel like all Selfie Museums or pop-ups should provide these. I’ve been spoiled 🤷🏽♀️. Lol. Either way, I enjoyed it. Hopefully you were able to go before it closed on Sunday.

Selfie Wrld NoVA
Selfie Wrld just opened a location in Northern Virginia. I previously posted about it when the Virginia Beach location opened a few months ago. They are literally taking over. I had tickets to the Virginia Beach location but with so much going on lately, I couldn't make it so I'm happy they opened a closer location. I was able to visit over the weekend and loved it! They provide you with a selfie stand and clicker to set up the perfect shot which is pretty cool. I’ve been to quite a bit of them and this was one of my faves!
