Whose Shoes: Revealed

The guesses that came in yesterday for our “Whose Shoes” feature included RCP‘s Erin McPike and freelancer Stephanie Green.

The right answer is videographer Elizabeth Glover, who freelances for outlets like TWT and Insight News and Feature and previously Wonkette. She also owns and runs Bikram Yoga Capitol Hill, which some Washington journos like Politico‘s Patrick Gavin have been known to frequent.

Glover purchased the shoes at Palace 5ive on 14th Street near U St. NW in DC. “It’s a super cool skate shop,” she explained. “They’re Nike skateboarding shoes. They were on the sale in the Spring, I think, and marked down from $150 or so to $60ish.   I don’t know why they have different colored shoelaces. They came that way – already laced.”

She also said wearing these shoes to upscale receptions isn’t her norm. “I don’t usually wear them to fancy media events but I was rushing from the studio and forgot to change out of them. My loafers were in the car. Whoops!”

Cap File Celebrates 5 Years

The Corcoran Gallery played host to Capitol File‘s fifth anniversary fete last night.   Guarded by a gestapo of magazine interns who seemed excited to turn away would-be crashers (and those who fell victim to a clerical error *see: me), the event featured “Project Runway” host and Cap File cover boy Tim Gunn.  A sensory overload designed by Andre Wells, the soiree boasted a four-foot birthday cake, a deejay and  drive-by appetizers that made their way through the bar on a sushi-style conveyor belt. 

Representing the magazine were new EIC Kate Bennett, Niche Media CEO Jason Binn and Sarah Schaffer, former EIC turned publisher.  Media-types spotted taking in the sights and sounds were WBJ‘s Jen Nycz-Conner, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Roll Call‘s Jackie Kucinich, Stephanie Green, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, Janet Donovan, CBS’s Christine Delargy, FD’s Mary Kathryn Covert, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin and Project Beltway’s Rachel Cothran

Brave Journos Get Competitive Over Karaoke

NBC’s Luke Russert and CNN’s Brianna Keilar won “Best Duet” for Livin’ on a Prayer

(All photos taken by FishbowlDC’s Matt Dornic.)

Milling about in a darkened upstairs barroom last night at the Rock & Roll Hotel, the mood amongst journalists was a low buzz of excitement. Some of Washington D.C. ‘s nerviest participants in the charity competition were there having pre-Karaoke drinks. They showed not even a trace of anxiety.

One such performer was CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer, all decked in cowboy attire and accompanied by a CBS reporter and correspondent, Kaylee Hartung. Schieffer was moments away from performing with his band, Honky Tonk Confidential. Asked if he was nervous, he laughed and replied, “I’m so bad I’m so past that. Anyone with as little talent as me is beyond being embarrassed.”

Peter Parisi, a TWT copy editor, was particularly chipper in his red gingham button-down and blue jeans. He told me he had performed Karaoke dozens of times and was more than ready for his performance. “Sonny and Cher. I Got You Babe,” he said, when asked what he’d form. “Cher had a previous engagement so I’m going to have to do this alone.”

Journalists soon moved downstairs to the stage area. In the crowd, but not performing was NJ “The Hotline’s” Executive Editor Reid Wilson, Politico‘s Natasha Lennard, The Hill‘s Tricia Barba , Susan Crabtree and Christina Wilkie, QGA and FishbowlDC’s Matt Dornic, Chicago Sun Times D.C. Bureau Chief and Politics Daily Flotus columnist Lynn Sweet, Washington Examiner’s Julie Mason, NJ‘s Matt Cooper and Major Garrett, CBS News’s Christine Delargy and CNN’s Abby Livingston. Upcoming performers included NBC’s Luke Russert (who knew he could sing?), Politico’s Shira Toeplitz, Slate‘s Dave Weigel (who knew he could, er, dance?), CNN’s Brianna Keilar, HuffPost contributor Stephanie Green (lovely voice), Washington Life‘s Michael Clements (borrowed Green’s long fur tiger print coat for the performance; one journo said he wears coats like that only to funerals) and TPM (but soon-to-be CQ-Roll Call‘s) Christina Bellantoni.

CNN Senior White House correspondent and “Dynamite” performer Ed Henry was spotted by the bar horsing around with his backup singer children, Patrick and Mila, prepping them for the big event. He admitted to some pre-performance jitters. “Covering the White House is easy compared to this,” he confided. “This is sink or swim.” But Henry persevered and won “Best in Show.” (See a complete list of performances, more photographs and award winners after the jump.)

Nerves or not, a decent-sized roster of journos soon took to the stage.

Amongst White House scribes, the competition grew tense over Twitter with lots of smack talk. One of those talkers was The Hill‘s White House correspondent Sam Youngman. Once on stage, the lights beamed on him and he looked utterly relieved.  “This is awesome, I can’t see any of you,” he told the crowd. He had planned to sing three short verses of “Lawyers, Guns and Money,” by Warren Zevon, but during the performance appeared surprised when the song seemed to stretch on so long. Still, he held his own, sang in tune and thankfully, unlike some of the other performers, didn’t try to hit any high notes.

Journos to Sing Badly for a Good Cause

It takes courage to get up and sing – period.

Some D.C. journalists may be ruing the day they ever agreed to sing Karaoke for the upcoming event: 2010 Karaoke in the Capitol. Singers include politicians, political insiders and media. Proceeds will benefit Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, a non-profit that provides musical instruments to deserving students.

The event, hosted by The American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Mid-Atlantic Chapter, a nonpartisan organization representing political and public affairs professionals, is on Oct. 6 at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are now on sale at www.karaokeinthecapital.com for $15.

“Some of the best voices in Washington and some that you’ll never want to hear again will gather on the big stage for an evening you may want to forget but never will,” joked CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer, who is emceeing the event (and performing). Schieffer’s band, Honky Tonk Confidential will be the opening act.
