Journos Get ‘Social’ at Safeway

Cocktails flowed to live music while waiters carried flutes of Cristal and Dom through the crowd. Politicos and media types, dressed in cocktail attire nibbled on shrimp, creme puffs and other culinary delicacies…

While this might sound like an exclusive cocktail on Embassy Row, it was actually the scene at the new Georgetown Social Safeway last night. Media types such as WaPo Publisher Katharine Weymouth and Washingtonian Publisher Cathy Merrill Williams joined WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, Carol Joynt, Politico’s Kiki Ryan, CBS’ Christine Delargy, Tammy Haddad, 9 News’ Angie Goff, Janet Donovan, Politics Daily’s Annie Groer, Georgetown Dish’s Judith Beermann, Tim Burger, Marlene Hall and Linda Roth for free run of the uber-chic grocery megastore.

The fete, planned by event guru Philip Dufour (the mastermind behind MSNBC’s WHCD & RTCA parties) was actually a blast. Who knew grocery stores could be so much fun?
