All We Want For Christmas Is…?

Let’s face it, most of you are getting coal for Christmas this year -we know we are. But we asked a bunch of local journos and politicos to pretend they weren’t so naughty this year, and tell us what they’re asking Santa for for Christmas. Here are the responses we have so far. We’ll update them as we get more!

CapFile‘s Elizabeth Thorp: “For schools not to close when there’s a micro-dusting of snow, a ticket to the Vanity Fair WHCD party and a speaking role on ‘House of Cards’ Season 3 as the ruthless but brilliant editor of Capitol File.”

TWT‘s John Solomon: “We’ve been working on this new website night and day for the last six weeks, all I want is a solid 8 hours of sleep on Christmas Eve.”

Ron Bonjean: “Hoping for waist band pants from all the Christmas goodies. Also a PS4 or Xbox One is there are any left. And a comprehensive energy policy for today’s America.”

Sara Bonjean: “A strong national defense.”

Politico‘s Patrick Gavin: “I’d take an entry into the 2014 Boston Marathon, the most difficult ticket around.”

Roll Call‘s Abby Livingston: “A new Chi hair straightener. My old one was already on its last leg when it exploded in-use in the Roll Call bathroom as I was getting ready to go out after work in September. Smoke and everything. It’s been a rough – and wavy – autumn for this reporter.”

WJLA’s Kris Van Cleave: “Noise cancelling earbuds, dinner with some of my good friends, and a pony.”

Good Deeds

jocelyngeoffHere at FishbowlDC we’re getting in the holiday spirit by promoting the DC media community’s good deeds.

First up is in an event hosted by Jocelyn Quinn (daughter of powerhouse politico couple Jack and Susanna Quinn) and Chef Geoff Tracy (Mr. Norah O’Donnell) to raise money for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, which aims to eliminate childhood hunger in America.

The pair of do-gooders is hosting a bake sale outside of Chef Geoff’s upper Georgetown restaurant on Sunday, December 22nd, where Jocelyn will sell home made baked goods and hot chocolate. On top of that, Chef Geoff’s will donate $1 for every desert that is sold to No Kids Hungry. Their goal is to raise $14,000, which is enough to connect kids with 140,000 meals. If you’re in the area, come out and support the cause! You can also donate here.

WHAT: Bake Sale to Support No Kids Hungry Campaign

WHO: Jocelyn Quinn and Chef Geoff Tracy

WHERE: Outside Chef Geoff’s, 3201 New Mexico Ave, Washington, DC

WHEN: Sunday, December 22nd, 12:00 – 3:00 PM
