Basketball fans should circle July 15 on their calendars. That's when the WNBA All-Star game returns to the nation's capital. The game, the eighth in the league's 11-year history, pits some of the best and most popular players of the Eastern Conference against those in the Western Conference. While the battle for bragging rights is the culmination of the event, the competition also includes a three-point shootout and the popular Dribble, Dish and Swish Skills Challenge, an obstacle course that gives select players the chance to showcase their speed, skill and accuracy.

The best airport fo r business jet travelers to use is Washington Dulles, 23 miles from the Verizon Center, which is hosting the event. The three FBOs on the field-Dulles Jet Center, Landmark Aviation and Signature-can provide fuel and services. Those who would prefer to use a non-airline field should consider Virginia's Leesburg Executive or Manassas.

“I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht. ”

-musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase
