NJ is planning a series of parties in a pop-up retail space downtown at 624 E St. NW known as “NJ’s re-launch headquarters.” Some “insiders events” will be harder to attend than others. This Monday, for example, will be an exclusive opening night cocktail reception with editors and writers of the new NJ. There’s another “insiders” event this Tuesday honoring the congressional and political “influencers” behind the NJ Insiders Poll  One soiree likely to be a hot ticket is the Major Garrett Bourbon tasting on Nov. 1. There’s a book party for Michael Hersh on Wednesday Oct. 27 for his book, Capital Offense: How Washington’s wise men turned America’s Future over to Wall Street. As we’ve reported, the main relaunch party is Thursday Oct. 28. There’s also a “Staff Wrap” party on Nov. 4.

Stay tuned for more details and party coverage…
