Shift "The End" Party (that is, last Shift event) at Cobalt DC, while debt crisis percolates three miles away

Last night, Cobalt DC held its last Saturday “Shift” party, subtitled “The End”, apparently because the sponsoring DJ group is moving out of the area.   (The link is the same.)  Cobalt DC will need to come up with a new last weekend event starting in August. 
The crowd built up slowly at first, only gradually becoming festive on this somber, hot late July evening.

The crowd was not as intimate as usual, until it just exploded around 1 AM.  A lot of cell phones were being watched as a drama went on three miles away on Capitol Hill.

I didn’t try to attend the RuPaul’s Drag Race event at the TownDC, (link) but I hope other bloggers did.
All of this on a very eventful weekend for the country in many ways. The recent certification of the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell” is one of them. 
I left about 2, and cabbies were charging extra last night, maybe because of the mess on the Hill.
