WHCD: Cap File Rises to the Occasion

Tight budgets and tiny guest lists at other post-dinner events offered Capitol File/Niche Media an interesting opportunity to make their mark as hosts for the 2009 WHCD weekend must-attend fete.

Luckily for Cap File, the Saturday night soiree lived up to the hype. Journalists, politicos, Hollywood royalty and actual royalty packed the invite-only (crashers of yesteryear were out of luck) party at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

FishbowlDC hung with media power couple Mark Whitaker and Alexis Gelber, Yeas & Nays Kiki Ryan and almost off-the-market Jeff Dufour (engaged to Jayne Sandman), WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, HuffPo’s Ryan Grimm, Newsweek’s Mike Isikoff, WaPo’s Mary Ann Akers, Mike Mills and Jackie Kucinich from Roll Call, CNN’s Leslie Sanchez and Suzanne Malveaux, TWT silver fox Joe Curl, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, NJ’s Erin McPike, GMA’s Polson Kanneth and Project Beltway’s Rachel Cothran.

We also caught up with FNC’s Greta Van Susteren (who charmed my mom/date at Tammy Haddad‘s brunch earlier in the day) and spotted PBS’ Gwen Ifill, BET’s Debra Lee, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, Daily Beast’s Rachel Sklar, CNBC’s Jim Kramer and AP/WHCA’s Jennifer Loven.

We reunited with old pal Rachael Leigh Cook (whose youthful beauty seems to defy time) and got to know our Friday night crush; Meghan McCain a little better. Christian Slater, Wanda Sykes, Amber Tamblyn, Chris Tucker, Eva Longoria Parker, John McLaughlin, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Mariska Hargitay, Tim Daly, Kara DioGuardi, Keisha & Forest Whitaker, Owen Wilson, Jason Wu, David Cross, Connie Britton, Padma Lakshmi, Dule Hill, Kai Milla, Matthew Settle all made the fete.

The political scene included Todd Palin and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa while Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett and Desiree Rogers represented the White House.

Even HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud was on hand to toast the evening’s event.

Also Captain Richard Phillips, Janet Napolitano and Todd Palin, being walked around by Fox’s Greta Van Susteren.

Hot Ticket: Cap File Post-WHCD Party

Slashed guest lists, merged parties and budget cuts across-the-board have made WHCD party invites much harder to come by this year. With only two hundred spots up for grabs at Bloomberg’s joint party with Vanity Fair, an invite to Cap File’s fete at the Corcoran Gallery has become a newly coveted prize.

TWT’s Green & Glover report that Wanda Sykes, Anne Hathaway, Sting, Kevin Bacon, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Ellen Burstyn, Dana Delany, Kara DioGuardi, Barry Levinson, Eva Longoria Parker, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Matthew Modine, Bill O’Reilly, Narciso Rodriguez, Christian Slater, Jon Voight, Kate Walsh, Kerry Washington and Forest and Keisha Whitaker will all be present at Saturday night’s Capitol File soiree.

Check out TWT for more on this and Cap File’s new issue.
