Professionals in the city - meeting new people in DC

Living in the USThere are many community websites for professionals, here is one which has a Washington DC community :

They seem to be pretty active. Take a look at their calendar of events. I quote them : "It's a great resource for people who want to meet new people and take advantage of everything that DC has to offer". They offer a large panel of classes so people can get together (cooking, aikido, etc.). The nice thing is that you get to do something new and you socialize with new people.
