Chances are the hotness inside the Verizon Center rivaled the record temps outside recently at the Wizards Cheerleaders try-outs. This was just the 1st round. Check out the full gallery here

BRB: Neighbor with a big bite

Okay if you’re gonna break your diet.. and you’re doing it with burgers you must go big or don’t go at all.

Yes that’s my table at the new BRB burger joint in Reston Town Center. BRB which stands for Be Right Burger opened up right next to the ice skating rank.

FREE BURGER: Check in w/ Foursquare

DEALS: Join BRB on Facebook

It’s really a cool concept. There are touch screens for you to place your order and pay for it while you’re waiting in line. The signature items run the hunger gamut.. from the Samurai Turkey Burger, to the Shroomin Burger, the Lobster Roll and the monster Hangover (see below). What I love is that the meat is all-natural, hormone and antibiotic free Angus beef from a local Maryland farm.

Adora who has just started to eat solids took a liking to the kid french fries- cut out like smiley faces! Sauces were amazing too– my fave was the wasabi mayo which is what I dipped my fries in. Oh the best part. Thursday through Friday BRB is open until 3AM! BRB is located at 1820 Discovery Street at the Reston Town Center.

It’s 5 for Kate!

Reflecting on the last 5 years, founder Kate Michael told the crowd that  it’s “a very long time in internet years” and she plans to keep it up. We sure hope so… here’s to looking forward to celebrating 6! Leigh Macdonald contributed to this report.

Where the beef… meets broadcast

Shawn, Me and Elaine with Chef Philippe Reininger

The weather was perfect for an afternoon lunch with the news gals here in DC. This time we gathered at the new J&G Steakhouse on 15th and Pennsylvania. As we enjoyed appetizing fried calamari and rice cracker crusted tuna we laughed about being moms and the new “Go the ___ to Sleep” book that’s all the rave these days amongst parents. When it was entree’ time we were impressed to find out that the steakhouse is vegan friendly! A couple of the gals had no problem ordering. Halibut in a scallion-spicy chili sauce was a popular pick this day. I was also happy to see they have Sips & Bites from 5-7pm on weekdays where you can get smaller portions of their dishes paired with wine at the wine bar.

It was also great to chit chat with cityshopgirl turned radio host Kelly Collis who recently helped launch the new morning show on 94.7 FRESH FM. Shout out to Eun Yang for arranging the get together… really enjoyed catching up with all the girls at the table.. Anita Brikman, Lesli Foster, Elaine Reyes and Shawn Yancy!

Beautiful fruit dessert in sangria

Great patio for outside dining

“Honoring the Promise” with the Stars

Nancy Brinker addresses the crowd

“You are the future” Ambassador Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G. Komen Foundation told a crowd of young Washingtonians. We attended the Komen Young Professionals reception held at a pink-lit Peacock Cafe’ in Georgetown. The event help kick off the buzz for what promises to be one of the premiere events of the Fall: Komen’s “Honoring the Promise” Gala on October 28th at The Kennedy Center. Last year, the non-profit celebrated 30 years of trying to find a cure and saving lives along the way. Last year’s star-studded gala included presenters Laura Bush, Gabrielle Union, Cynthia Nixon, Tory Burch… performers like Olivia Newton John, Lynda Carter.. and the Australian pop star who’s dating one of the Jonas Brothers, Delta Goodrem. That passionate evening raised a phenomenal $2 million dollars.

This year the stage will shine bright again. DC favorite Rosario Dawson is already one of  the presenters confirmed. NBC’s Hoda Kotb, a breast cancer survivor will be the Master of Ceremonies. Jot this down, mark the calendar and get ready to break out that black tie or gorgeous gown for an evening of entertainment and special awards!

The Junkies

Whew! That’s what I said when my in-studio visit with the Sports Junkies was over. I had heard horror but funny stories from previous gal pals who were guests. In the end actually thought the guys: EB, JP, Lurch and Cakes were true gentlemen (attractive too).  I learned that dandruff is still a big problem and I dig accents from Baltimore. All in all it was a ton of fun and I’m thankful for the invite. It was also nice to see Mike Wise stop in to during the show. Special thanks to Executive Producer Bret and WUSA photographer Kevin King. Did you miss it? Now worries… check out their podcast which includes both segments. Tune in to the WUSA9 Morning Show Tuesday to see a recap of the visit.
