With temps now in the 90s, it’s safe to say D.C.’s summer heat waves can’t be far behind, but have no fear. Be a well-informed local and make plans for July 4th that take you to a cool, luxurious hotel with one of the best views of the fireworks in the city; drink world-renowned wines from Piedmont, Italy with their equally renowned winemaker; and dine under the stars to mark the summer solstice. No matter which option you choose, the food, drink, and company will be simpatico across the district.

Bibiana Osteria-Enoteca to Host Winemaker’s Dinner Featuring Oddero Vineyards
Italian wines are indeed wonderful, but it’s in the Piedmont region that greatness is achieved. This Thursday, June 23, Bibiana Osteria Enoteca is hosting a dinner that marries the historic wines from the Oddero winery in Piedmont with the inventive Italian cuisine of executive chef Jake Addeo . Oddero’s acclaimed winemaker, Alberto Zaccarelli, will be on hand to guide you through a three-course dinner and wine tasting featuring the Luigi Oddero Barolo 2010; Luigi Oddero Barolo Vigna Rionda 2004; Luigi Oddero Barolo Vigna Rionda 2006, and Luigi Oddero Barolo Vigna Rionda 2000. Tickets are $120 per person (tax and gratuity not included) and reservations are required for this intimate dinner.

Celebrate Independence Day at The Hay-Adams Hotel
Want to avoid the huddled millions, heat, and hustle of Independence Day celebrations but still enjoy the fireworks with the best view in town? Celebrate in luxury at The Hay-Adams Hotel. They are offering a special July 4th Fireworks and Dinner package that is the ultimate in stay-cations. A room at this historic hotel offers incredible views of the White House, Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, and Capitol Fourth fireworks from atop the hotel at Top of the Hay. The package includes a luxurious room, a three-course dinner for two with wine, an open bar, and then desserts at Top of the Hay for viewing the fireworks.

I Ricchi Celebrates Summer Solstice with a Cena Bianca
Celebrate the longest day of the year Italian-style with chef Christianne Ricchi from I Ricchi tonight, June 20. She is hosting the summer solstice with a Cena Bianca or White, and guests are encouraged to wear white and bring along a white accessory — I Ricchi will supply the rest — white chairs, linens, flowers, live music, and fantastic food. Sit under the stars and twinkling lights and enjoy seasonal dishes family-style that include salmon and shrimp, balsamic chicken, cured meats and cheeses, salads, just-picked vegetables, and much, much more. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. and is $49 per person plus tax and tip. Wine and cocktails are also available for an additional price.
