Party Photos: Cocktails in Washington, D.C.

At Ortanique, November 20, 2003

Posted December 1, 2003

We threw a party down in Washington last month, and mb editor Jesse Oxfeld just couldn't stay away. From mb HQ to Amtrak to Metro to Ortanique, he made it there in time to welcome all sorts of capital-area media pros to our little shindig, and he had a great time seeing his old friends and meeting new ones.
