Washington Journos “Warm Up” at the W Hotel

w kiki bar.jpg

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.

Who’s your daddy? If you answered “Jeff Dufour,” you’re either Jayne Sandman or one of the “in the know” readers of UrbanDaddy.com.

FishbowlDC is amped to see that our pal, former “Yeas and Nays” columnist Jeff Dufour has safely landed at his swanky new home on the Web, UrbanDaddy DC! The site is now live, so sign up and find out what Jeff is up to here.

FW Celebrates First Anniversary in Style


Schuman signed copies of his book at FW’s first anniversary party.

WaPo‘s fashion magazine FW celebrated a one-year anniversary in style last evening at newly opened Masa 14.

The FW team- publisher Jenny Abramson, editor Jennifer Barger and senior editor Betsy Lowther- welcomed everyone. “Even when 401Ks get cut in half, people like to look good.”

Philippe Cousteau and Alexandra Cousteau, grandchildren of Jacques Cousteau and Washingtonians themselves, were the mag’s guests of honor, for “exuding style while creating eco-awareness.”

“The Sartorialist” Scott Schuman, who was featured in FW‘s latest issue, sold and signed copies of his book. Schuman is a New York fashion photographer– though not your typical fashion photographer. He shoots people on the street, more abstractly.

The party was slated to end at 9pm, but with a line down the bar for “The Sartorialist” signings, we hear it went on until after midnight. Schuman blogs this morning, “I expected great things in cities like London and Paris, but DC was a total surprise.”

It was certainly a ladies night… Pamela Sorensen, Jayne Sandman, Kiki Ryan, Jessica Gibson, Pamela Brown, Angie Goff, Rachel Cothran, Jessica Hoy, Juleanna Glover, Becca Glover and Kate Michael all spotted by. And some male representation- Pepper Watkins and John Cpin. FBDC also spotted the speculated “Real Housewives of DC,” though sans camera crew.


Guests modeled for FW photographers. Pics could show up in the magazine.

W is for Wow! What a Night…

The uber-fab fete for last night’s opening of the W Hotel ranks as one of the most exciting events this year. The old Hotel Washington wore subtle pinstripes and bold lace.

“Everyone thinks of Washington power as pinstripes, but the truth is — the real power is in a lacy negligee,” said Jayne Sandman while explaining the hotel’s decor to Joe Curl and Ed Henry.

Washington media stars were glammed out and grooving to a private concert by John Legend while toasting the super-chic digs with celebs like Emmy Rossum, Johnny Wright and Tatyana Ali.

Also spotted were Wash Life‘s Michael Clements, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, Pamela Sorensen, Urban Daddy’s Jeff Dufour, Bloomberg’s Tim Burger, CNN’s Jessica Yellin, MTP’s Betsy Fischer, Jack Quinn, Susanna Quinn,Tammy Haddad, FNC’s Bret Baier, Amy Baier, WaPo Reliable Source’s Amy Argetsinger, Jessica Gibson, TWT‘s Joe Curl, CNN’s Ed Henry, Politics Daily’s Emily Miller, Cap File‘s Sarah Schaffer, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, CBS’ Scott McCrary, Fox 5′s Paul Raphel, Politico‘s Mike Allen, Fox 5′s Steve Chenevy and new “Yeas and Nays” columnist Tara Palmeri hanging with Mark Ein.

DC Media Types and Athletes “Walk This Way” for Charity

Becky Lee brought out the big guns last night for her charity’s fashion show “Walk this Way.” Becky’s Fund is a non-profit that supports domestic violence victims.

Redskins Clinton Portis, Jason Campbell and Albert Haynesworth, as well as DC United’s Devon McTavish, modeling Eric Finn Custom Clothiers, walked a runway across the rooftop pool at the Liasion Hotel downtown. NBC4 sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak emceed the event, which felt more like a night out in LA or NY than traditional DC.

Juleanna Glover, who’s a board member of Becky’s Fund, Redskins’ Chris Cooley and his wife, WUSA’s Angie Goff, Jayne Sandman, CBS’ Kaylee Hartung, TWT‘s Liz Glover, Politico‘s Amie Parnes, among many others on the packed roof, were in attendance.

Lee started “Becky’s Fund” with prize money she earned a second-runner up on “Survivor: Cook Islands.” Learn more about “Becky’s Fund” here.

Though we missed him, we heard Ginuwine was there. We didn’t, however, miss Portis special order fried shrimp and champagne backstage.

Weekend Wrap: Running and Drinking Like a Sailor

Navy 5 Miler
The Bachelor’s Andy Baldwin, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich, On Tap’s Ashley Estill, Glenn Ballard and I (Matt Dornic) were all up bright and early on Sunday morning to run the Navy 5 Miler. I won’t brag but facts are facts. I ran it the fastest. Okay…I have no idea how quickly Baldwin ran it but I beat Estill, Kucinich, McFly and Ballard.

Sou’Wester Opening
After an effortless 5 miles, FishbowlDC headed to the Mandarin Oriental for CityZen’s fifth anniversary and the birth of new restaurant Sou’Wester.

We ran into Bloomberg’s Tim Burger, Politico’s Kiki Ryan, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, Kelly DiNardo, Daily Candy’s Erin Hartigan, David Hagedorn, Examiner’s Jeff Dufour and Jayne Sandman.

While one half of the Examiner‘s “Yeas and Nays” column was sealing the deal with Politico, the other was sealing the deal with a different but also powerful force in the DC media scene…Jayne Sandman.

After being abandoned — first by Patrick Gavin and now by Kiki Ryan, Jeff Dufour made his partnership with Jayne Sandman legally binding…

Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Dufour!
