Bringing people together from throughout the scene.
Since our inception, The Metro Underground has carried one central focus: to bring people of a like mind together & create a forum for people to connect. Our Seasonal Scene Socials strive to do just that.
All too often we converse at affairs with not much more than a sound-bite. So by design our more casual socials are offered as a chance to connect on a deeper level over drinks, good food, & honest conversation.

The Great Celtic Revival - welcome to St. Patrick's Night of Mayhem: the return of the snakes! Somewhere around the fifth century, St. Patrick drove the 'snakes' from Ireland. Well we're bringing 'em back!
Our first Metro Event was held as a themed night for St. Patrick's Day. It remains an annual favorite, so each year we gather for the anniversary & offer a perfect opportunity to connect before the main party season takes hold. Held generally on the Friday before St. Pat's, we hope you’ll join us as we gather good friends old & new for the Great Celtic Revival.
We're set for O'Connell's in Alexandria (112 King Street, Alexandria, Va), & have the UPSTAIRS Bar to the back of
the pub reserved as a dedicated space. If needed, just ask for the Fitzgerald Room. Kickoff is 8:30pm & we'll go 'til close. See O'Connell's Online.
The DC High Heel Race: Hosted annually on the Tuesday before Halloween, 17th Street NW brings one of DC's greatest traditions! If you've never been, it's as close as DC comes to Mardi Gras. And make no mistake, it's for everyone (THOUSANDS go to this thing). Festivities run for 4 blocks between R & Church St. along 17th NW DC. The main parade kicks off around 7pm & the race runs at 9pm (but it's really all about the parade).
We meet in front of Floriana's on the corner of 17th & Q St (it's a good spot w/ a patio bar & access to restrooms). If you're not sure who you're looking for then look for the guy dressed as Ratatouille: white chef coat w/ Remy on my shoulder & a black kilt. We're always looking for a good opportunity to bring people together, & this is an amazing event for a fun night out. So we hope to see you there!
Please Note: This is mainstream affair, but all our gatherings bring together various cultures of the overall scene. So please come with an open mind, a desire for fun, & conduct yourself in a respectful manner to all who are present.
