Last night, movers and shakers of all ages gathered at the Washington Club in Dupont Circle to toast Washington Life’s annual “Young and the Guest List.”

From the swanky digs and the guests’ stylish threads to the truly superb swag bags (co-sponsored by WL and Moki Media), the event’s “Return to Glamor” theme shined throughout the evening.

In addition to three generations of FishbowlDC – CBS’ Christine Delargy, Politico’s Patrick Gavin, Washingtonian’s Garrett Graff and me, luminaries from every facet of Washington attended the fab fete.

We spotted Top Chef Spike Mendelsohn chatting with White House Chef Sam Kass as well as reality stars Krista Johnson, Katherine Kennedy and Andy Baldwin. The Washington press corps was well-represented by folks such as Tammy Haddad, Angie Goff, Pamela Brown, Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Kiki Ryan, Examiner’s Nikki Schwab, CBS News’ Kaylee Hartung, Daily Caller’s Becca Glover, Amy Holmes, Makeda Sackey-Saggau, The Hill’s Jared Allen, Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich and UrbanDaddy’s Jeff Dufour with wife, Jayne Sandman.

We also caught up with MTP producer Betsy Fischer (just turned 40) who joked that her date, Politico’s Jonathan Martin, “better make the list next year so [she] could still go to the party.”

A few Washingtonians traveled to London this week for the 2010 Alliance for Youth Movements Conference.

Both participated on panels there and provided feedback daily on the DC-based webcast.

“Washington Unplugged” got involved in covering the conference after CBS did an “Unplugged, Under 40″ piece on the State Department’s Jared Cohen, a policy planning staffer who has done a lot of work on new social media.

See the report from Kaylee and Juan below.

CBS’s “Washington Unplugged” Prepares to Party

WashUnplugInvite-1.jpg

CBS’s Washington bureau is getting ready for tonight’s cocktail party at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza hotel. The party celebrates the one-year anniversary of their daily political webcast, “Washington Unplugged”.

The segment began with Bob Schieffer hosting. It was a weekly webcast that soon expanded to daily. Today CBS News Political Analyst John Dickerson and correspondents such as congressional reporter Nancy Cordes, investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson and national security correspondent Bob Orr share hosting duties with Schieffer.

Guests on “Washington Unplugged have been a mix of bigwigs in Washington and Hollywood – including Zac Efron, Claire Danes, Goldie Hawn, and Woody Harrelson. Favorite guests: Elmo (Schieffer interviewed the popular red fuzzy animal himself) and Cheech and Chong (they offered anchor Bill Plante a joint).

Tonight’s party is sure to attract reporters from publications such as NYT, WaPo, HuffPost, and TPM to Daily Caller, Politico and more.

From CBS: Chief White House correspondent Chip Reid, Dickerson, Atlantic reporter Marc Ambinder, bureau chief Chris Isham, web producers Michelle Levi and Lauren Seifert, digital journalist Fernando Suarez, Christine DeLargy and Kaylee Hartung, who has been doing the “Unplugged, Under 40″ pieces.

And there will be cupcakes. Fresh off their appearance on “Washington Unplugged”, Georgetown Cupcakes is making cupcakes specially for CBS’s party – and the girls will attend.

Remarked Schieffer: “What’s great about Washington Unplugged is that it gives us a place to report those little stories, the delicious little nuggets of news that there is no room for on television.”
