A Good Night to be on the Guest List

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.”

Soccer Saturday: Gibbs & W

Not that “W”…however, that’s a soccer game I’d pay to watch.

Far from Crawford TX, WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was spotted “kicking it” at the new W Hotel this weekend. Gibbs was one of the few folks that made the cut for a DC United VIP party held Saturday night.

But Gibbs wasn’t alone. The Bachelor’s Andy Baldwin, WH Domestic Policy Adviser Melody Barnes, Obama Military Adviser Matt Flavin, Top Chef’s Spike Mendelsohn, FOX AM News’ Holly Morris, WH Deputy Chief of Staff Mona Sutphen and Roberto Rodriguez, WH education policy adviser were all in attendance as well.
