PENN QUARTER -- There's tradition and then there's legend. And after more than two decades as one of the most looked forward to summer events for Washington's young and beautiful, The Capital Club's signature Sinatra Soiree has clearly earned its local celebrity status.

What began as a small group of friends in a hotel ballroom some 21 years ago has today transformed into a massive production that will see some 1,200 guests fill the interior of the National Building Museum on Thursday, for a playfully self-described night of 'cocktails and carousing' (Washingtonian went so far as to call it one of the year's Best Parties).

The latter is a nod to the event's namesake, the Chairman of the Board himself, Mr. Frank Sinatra, who made nightlife history as a member of the so-called 'Rat Pack' (along with the likes of Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., among others) during the 1960s.

While Ol' Blue Eyes won't be on vocals at this week's event, there will be a full All Star big band performing throughout, with a late night DJ performance by the Trophy Brothers to close things out after midnight.

A limited number of tickets is still available, but prices are scheduled to rise gradually throughout the week so guests are encouraged to purchase sooner rather than later (admission includes access to a buffet of hors d'oeuvres and desserts, as well as a series of premium open bars).

As we did in 2012, will be holding a 'Best Dressed' contest during this year's Sinatra Soiree event, with judges Sam Sterling and Abby Albright on the lookout for the best example of 'strong cocktail' (ladies) and 'summer ahoy' (gents) attire.

Prizes will include free blowouts from Drybar, gift cards to George (the official after party spot), and free dinners at Carmine's.

So look sharp and dance hard D.C., as this is one of the best events of the season. We'll see you on Thursday night!
