Heil Gets Served and Grilled

More than twenty media types gathered last night at LOOK to eat a course (or three) and raise a glass (or twelve) to Emily Heil’s gig as the new half of WaPo’s “Reliable Source” column.

Neither Amy Argetsinger, who is vacating the column, nor Reliable’s Roxanne Roberts were in attendance but dinner host Janet Donovan still managed to pull together an impressive and multi-generational roster of Washington gossip columnists and journos.  Among those in attendance were Annie Groer, radio hosts Bill Press and John McCaslin, Politico’s Patrick Gavin and wife Anne, Whispers columnist Nikki Schwab, USA Today’s Sue Davis, CNN’s Matt Dornic, NJ’s Ben Terris, K Street Kate Michael, Mary Bird, Washington Life’s Kevin Chaffee, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Roll Call‘s Warren Rojas, and LOOK owner Michael Kosmides.

Y & N’s Katy Adams Toasted at Teatro

Vino flowed for Katy Adams at Teatro Goldoni on Friday evening. The newest writer to take the reins of the Examiner‘s “Yeas and Nays” column was celebrated by nearly two dozen media types with a lovely three-course dinner hosted by Janet Donovan. In attendance were WBJ‘s Jennifer Nycz-Conner, Nick Massella, Brendan Kownacki, Human Events editor Emily Miller, Roz Plater and Maureen Ume of Fox 5, Roll Call‘s Beth Brotherton and Ali McSherry, Examiner’s Jacque Bland, Mary Bird, Amy McLean of CTIA and of course, Katy’s partner in crime – Nikki Schwab.

The hot topics: Glenn Beck’s weekend rally (Schwab and Miller hashed it out), Donovan’s consumer electronics woes (TiVo, DVD TV setup), and Nikki Schwab’s new “do,” as in hairdo – Schwab treated herself to a little makeover at the Red Door Salon that day.
