Sam Youngman’s Goodbye Soirée is ‘The Other Side of This Town’

photo-25A sizable gathering of journos packed into the dimly-lit Oyster Bar of Old Ebbitt Grill last night to bid farewell to Sam Youngman, who’s headed to Lexington, Ky. to shake things up at the Kentucky-Herald Leader.

“It’s so easy to sh-t all over this town, and I will continue to do so with great relish,” Youngman told FishbowlDC by email today. “But last night was a reminder that there are so many wonderful and talented people here, and I’m fortunate to know them.”

Kevin Madden, a CNN Contributor, pointed out last night, “This is the other side of This Town.” You hear that Mark Leibovich?

The party was meticulously organized by CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett, who regularly frequents Old Ebbitt and is something of a star there. (We resisted the terrible urge to give Garrett an impromptu spelling test. He assures that he can spell fairly well, just not in a Spelling Bee format.)
