News gals don’t believe in portion control

A group of us DC news women got together for some major eating this week. It was a time to catch up and also start brainstorming about Newsbabes Bash IV. What better to give our brains a boost than some penne alla vodka and chicken parmiggiano at Carmine’s. We couldn’t forget dessert… when the Titanic comes a’sailin you let it pull into port and then pig out. Stay tuned for more on May’s Newsbabes Bash.. we’ve got some surprises in store!
