Washingtonian MOM celebrated it’s second issue Wednesday night in which NBC4′s Eun Yang graces the cover. FishbowlDC put on our parenting boots and jumped right into the celebration (we actually don’t have parenting boots, so we wore our Palladium boots instead). Here’s how it went down.

4:45pm - Begin to figure out when is considered “fashionably late” for a 6:30 event thrown by a (Washingtonian) fashion editor (Kate Bennett). Settle on 6:45.

6:34 - Walk into Room & Board, host and venue of the event, 9 minutes ahead of schedule.

6:35 - Bee line for the champers.

6:36 - Realization that I’m flying solo at a mom magazine event.

6:44 - Good (punctual!) crowd. 40 people approximately, including 4 other men, all looking around, likely pondering their attendance.

7:00 - Arrival of cover girl Yang.

7:10 - Anxiety setting in over the thought of having children. This leads to a refill of champers and quick stop by the food table (nice cheese and charcuterie spread by Screwtop).

Wildman Wins $10,000 Peter R. Weitz Prize

Sarah Wildman, who covers foreign politics and culture wars for Politics Daily, has won the Peter R. Weitz Prize for excellence in reporting on Europe. She won the award for a five-part series she wrote for Slate.

The German Marshall Fund of the United States has given her the award “for excellence and originality in reporting on Europe and the transatlantic relationship.”

Wildman won $10,000 prize for her investigation of the International Tracing Service, the world’s largest Holocaust archive in Bad Arolsen, Germany. Her five-piece series was published in Slate. It was called “riveting” by one judge, and records her journey to the ITS in search of information on a relative’s final year, entwining personal family history with the larger struggle to categorize, analyze, and understand Nazi records and survivor accounts.

She is reportedly working on turning the series into a book.
Wildman will receive the award in July at the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the German Marshall Fund.

A jury of American journalists selected the winner: Kevin Sullivan of WaPo, Ted Diadiun of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Andrew Ross of the San Francisco Chronicle, Laura Rozen of Politico, and Dan Vergano of USA Today.
