While almost everything in Washington, DC is closed today and likely tomorrow, there are still some great technology (and other) events happening later this week to liven things up post-Sandy. Our roundup is below.

Tuesday, October 30

9:00 pm

High Heel Race : This annual tradition of queens dressing to the nines and racing down 17th Street is still on for this Tuesday, with a potential postponement until Thursday if the bad weather persists. There’s no place in DC where you’ll see better makeup and costumes.

6:30 pm

NoVA Node Meetup : The Northern Viriginia node.js group will look at deploying node in production through the case study of SpanishDict’s new text-to-speech service. Check for updates tomorrow on whether this meetup is still happening or postponed.

Friday, November 2

8:00 pm — midnight

DCWEEK Opening Party : DC’s week long technology and design festival kicks off with a party that will bring folks out to network and have fun over drinks and live music.

This Weekend

10:00 am — 6:00 pm

DCWEEK Hackathon : This hackathon brings together developers, designers, and the pitchers to come up with a project idea and execute a first iteration — all in the name of cash prices and a chance to bring it to the next level.
