Washington Journos “Warm Up” at the W Hotel

Last night, Washington media foodies joined Jayne Sandman and Barbara Martin on the rooftop of the new W Hotel to sample the W’s new “Winter Warm Up” cocktail menu that includes warm and wonderful treats like hot peanut buttered rum, mulled pear cider, and hot “not” chocolate – a killer combo of spiced rum, vanilla and milk topped with chocolate marshmallows.

The crowd ranged from cocktail connoisseurs like Metrocurean’s Amanda McClements, Nycci Nellis and WaPo‘s David Hagedorn to bourgeois binge-drinkers like me.

Caught warming up with some of the W’s new cocktail creations were WBJ‘s Missy Frederick, The Hill‘s Kate Oczypok, Cap File‘s Sarah Schaffer, DC Mag’s George Stone, Michael Ponticelli and Aram Taghavi of Bisnow, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan and Amie Parnes, Rebecca Cooper of Dcist.com and Alex Nicholson for BrightestYoungThings.com.

As an added bonus, our own Chris Ariens from TVNewser was in town from New York.

DC Magazine Changes

Kate Ancieri, the features editor of DC magazine, has left the magazine after her husband took a job as a counselor at Harvard in Cambridge.

The magazine has hired George Stone, a former National Geographic Traveler staff writer and freelance writer. “He’s covered the hottest kitchens and coolest night spots in DC for eight years,” DC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Karen Sommer Shalett tells FishbowlDC. “His food and travel background is priceless to us.”

They’ve also hired Kate Roseblatt as a senior editor. She starts April 30. “Hailing from a former spot at FHM magazine in Manhattan,
she’ll be our stiletto-ed feet on the street,” Shalett says. “Kate has covered DC and Baltimore for several years and she’ll be popping up everywhere from the best boutiques to the chicest cocktail parties. A reporter at heart, she’s a trend-spotter with an eye for finds like the bracelets boy about town Omar Popal designed for his wait staff at Cafe Bonaparte and the most au currant accoutrements for the home.”

Associate Editor Rebecca Heslin will also take a bigger lead on DC Magazine’s social coverage and local fashion.
