February 29, 2012

This March, TTR Sotheby’s (TTRSIR) will open the doors of its newest office on 14th St NW to feature a local D.C. artist, Joel D’Orazio

The Sotheby’s brand has a long-standing relationship with the art world and with this initiative the Sotheby’s branch only hopes to strengthen its ties to the local art scene.  As an avid supporter of the D.C. art scene, TTRSIR most recently sponsored the Corcoran’s NOW at Night this past fall.  They hope that this featured artist initiative will only strengthen that connection and provide new opportunities for local artists.

The featured artist, Joel D’Orazio, after working with architecture for 25 years made the switch to creating paintings on panel and mixed media sculptures.  Each work, void of any clear symbols or meaning, has a life of its’ own.  D’Orazio’s “work begins as an adventure and its identity becomes as valid and important as the next,  with the medium playing a most important role in the discovery of solutions”.

On March 9th from 5:00-8:00 pm, TTR Sotheby's will hold a reception for D'Orazio's work at their office, 1506 14th Street, NW.

Über DC Love

February 13, 2012

Valentine’s Day is upon us, and that means it’s time to bring a whole new meaning to #ÜberDCLove! 

Whether you’ve snagged a table for two or are planning on celebrating with some of your best friends, Über wants to make sure everyone feels the Über DC Love. So, in celebration of perhaps the most loved and hated holiday, they're doing a little something extra for your Über rides this Tuesday.

On the evening of February 14th,  Über DC drivers are handing out roses to Über riders! And if flowers aren’t your thing, they've loaded up their cars with some tasty Valentine’s-themed M&M’s, too.

Tweet a photo of you in an Über with your favorite Über pickup line using the hashtag #ÜberDCLove. They'll toss you $5 in Über credit, and their favorite pickup line gets the next Uber ride free!

Mention THEDISH when you sign up for Über and if you're one of the first 25, you'll get $15 off your ride.
