CNN’s New Guard Greets Fox Newsers

A peculiar welcome wagon awaited Brit Hume and Karl Rove outside Fox News’ Washington bureau on Wednesday night.  Before they could enter the studios for their respective hits, both Fox Newsers were forced to pass by some 200 guests of CNN’s New Guard fete.  Awwwwkward.

“Rove looks like he could use a drink,” remarked one party goer.  “Call him over,” suggested another.

But unfazed by the clinking of glasses and rumble of voices, neither FNC personality gave more than a glance at the crew who had congregated on the patio of Johnny’s Half Shell, right in front of Fox’s North Capitol Street headquarters.

Sipping vino and noshing the night away, under glowing CNN logos were ‘new guarders’ such as DOD’s Doug Wilson, UN Foundation’s Heather Wong, Wally Adeyemo from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, W.H. Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest, State Department new media guru Alec Ross, CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf, Doug Heye, Ayotte press secretary Jeff Grappone, Reid communications director Adam Jentleson, Jen Psaki, Thune’s Kyle Downey, Duke University’s Ronnie Chatterji, Rand Paul spokeswoman Moira Bagley and Becca Glover from Rep. Issa’s press shop.  They mixed and mingled with CNN’s Sam Feist, Wolf Blitzer, Dana Bash, Edie Emery, Megan Grant, Donna Brazile, Jill Chappell, Sarah Baker, Jen Scoggins, and media types such as The Hill’s Judy Kurtz, Kelly DiNardo, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, and soon-to-be Roll Call’s Abby Livingston.

At the end of the evening CNN bid their guests farewell with a gift: network-branded umbrellas, in case of rain.

DC’s Ultra-Hip Birthday Bash

EIC Karen Sommer Shalett and Publisher Peter Abrahams

The top floor and roof of PNC Place were transformed into a uber-chic lounge last Thursday evening for the fifth anniversary of DC magazine.  Guests such as big-deal businessman and Washington Kastles owner Mark Ein, reality stars Rich and Mary Amons and several folks from the Obama Administration joined DC EIC Karen Sommer Shalett and Publisher Peter Abrahams for scenic views, hip tunes, culinary treats by Ridgewells  and a variety of wet bars (FishbowlDC remembers the Jack Daniels and Kettle One bars but everything beyond that is kind of a blur). 

On hand to celebrate were the new owners of the mag’s parent company, Modern Luxury.  Representing Dickey Publishing and Cumulus Broadcasting (the second largest broadcaster in the country) were the company’s president, Michael Dickey and Beth Weitzman, the organization’s Vice President of Editorial.   Media-types spotted include Real Housewives of DC’s Paul Wharton, Politico’s Kiki Ryan, CBS’s Christine Delargy, Tim Burger, Kelly DiNardo and Rosen Group VP Zachary Hooper

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.

Get Your Yoga On w/ Kelly DiNardo Tonight

Last week we told you that local author and journo Kelly DiNardo was opening Past Tense, a yoga studio in Mt.Pleasant. DiNardo is kicking off her new venture w/ free yoga in the park this evening. So clear your writer’s block and free your mind with Kelly & Past Tense tonight. Deets from DiNardo below:

Calling all Yogis, Exhibitionists, Nature Lovers and Those Without Air Conditioning!

Past Tense yoga studio will host a free, hour-long outdoor yoga class in Lamont Park on Tuesday, June 16 at 7:00 p.m. All levels of experience welcome.

Past Tense owner Kelly DiNardo will teach the hatha-style class. Instructor and freelance photographer Stacey Vaeth will snap photos, which, she assures us, will not make your butt look big. And, teacher assistants will be on hand to answer questions and provide hands-on adjustments.

Bring a mat, towel and water, and dress in weather-appropriate, comfortable clothing. Class will be rescheduled in the event of rain.

Lamont Park is located on Mt. Pleasant St. at the corner of 17th and Lamont Streets NW.

Chakra Battered by the Beat? Journo-preneur Kelly DiNardo Can Help

yoga_mat_0526.jpg

TWT’s Liz Glover is no longer the only journo by day, yoga studio owner by night. For three years, Cap. Hill has turned to Glover for help with their beat-battered chakras at her studio – Bikram Yoga. Now across town, another “Clark Kent” has been hard at work on her own journo-preneurial venture into yoga. Freelance writer and author of Gilded Lili, Kelly DiNardo just announced the opening of Past Tense yoga studio at 3253 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, NW.

Years ago, DiNardo discovered that yoga was a remedy for her writer’s block and quickly adopted it as a practice and passion. DiNardo says that she is opening Past Tense in hopes of “giving others the same strength, balance and flexibility that she acquired through yoga.”

With Glover’s Bikram Yoga in Cap Hill and DiNardo’s Past Tense in Mt. Pleasant, there is no excuse for nasty newsies.

Bruce Becker: The FishbowlDC Interview

Becker Bruce.JPGSay hello to Fox Business Networks’ D.C. Bureau Chief Bruce Becker.

What word do you routinely misspell? “Misspell.” My nightmare is sending out a memo reminding people not to misspell, and I misspell “misspell.” I had to look it up three times just to give you this answer.

What is the name of your cell phone ring? “Hey there Delilah” by Plain White T’s. No, wait. That’s my daughter’s. I actually have whatever boring ring tone that the phone came with. No one calls it, anyway, so it doesn’t matter.

What time did you get up this morning? 4:30am. I have a lot of nervous energy these days.

When did you last cry and why? NOYB.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? Too many. (Some day I’d like to see someone answer “Just the right amount” to that question.)

What’s your favorite letter? All of the Greek ones, of course. (That’s economics humor, which might explain why nobody calls me).

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? I’d have to say Roger Ailes had the biggest influence. As the force behind Fox News, he gave me some great opportunities that have propelled my career in the last eleven years. I’m very thankful.
