Something Old, Something New…

Something old:  Peter Cherukuri

Huffington Post’s Peter Cherukuri will celebrate his birthday tonight at Hudson Restaurant.  The aging VP and General Manager of HuffPo’s DC bureau will wave goodbye to his youth while taking in the tunes of the resto-lounges “Sinatra Night.”  The music begins at 7pm and ends at midnight.  But we wouldn’t recommend showing up late – given the birthday boy’s age, we anticipate an early end time.

Something new:  Story Partners’ New Hire Happy Hour

Tomorrow evening Amos Snead and the crew from Story Partners will toast to the new members of their team: Anne Brady, Mary Elizabeth Margolis, Mollie O’Dell and Steven Place.  The happy hour will be held from 6:00-8:00 PM at Bobby Vans Grill on New York Avenue.

Story Partners Hires Four

Story Partners, the public affairs firm founded by Gloria Dittus early last year, recently added four new team members to its Washington, D.C. office. Anne Brady joins as Vice President; Mollie O’Dell as Director; Mary Elizabeth Margolis as an Associate; and Steven Place as an Executive Assistant.

Prior to her gig at Story Partners, Anne Brady was the vice president of government relations at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).  She is the former Deputy Chief of Staff for Congressman Mark Schauer and served under then Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Rahm Emanuel at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).   Mollie O’Dell, former Deputy Press Secretary for the U.S. Department of Transportation, joins Story Partners from North Bridge Communications.  Mary Elizabeth Margolis is a former employee of Runyan Public Affairs and Steven  Place is a recent graduate of Catholic University.
