Sen. Vitter, wife break it down at Crawfish Boil

Louisiana Senator David Vitter, wife Wendy and family dined and danced at the Crawfish Boil at ‘The Cajun Experience’ in Dupont.

Crawfish Boil in Dupont

Suck the head, pinch the tails! Ok.. so I didn’t do that first part.. but I sure did enjoy cracking some mud bugs at the Crawfish Boil. Hosted by “The Cajun Experience” in Dupont, the party was fully dressed with the sounds of Lousiana and a menu made to please. I tried the Poboy sandwichs and gator bites which taste like chicken. I wasn’t bold enough to do the frog legs though. We saw Louisiana Senator David Vitter with his family.. not only dining but also dancing to the New Orleans band Zachary Smith and the Dixie Power Trio. Photo Credit: Dave Phillipich

Fall Favorite: Capital City Ball

We had a blast at the ball!  Held at the historic Washington Club on Dupont Circle, the 2010 Capital City Ball raised funds and awareness to fight human trafficking. Money raised went to local non profits like Fair Fund and Courtney’s House. Silent auction prizes included a trip to Italy and a pair of shoes worn and signed by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Oh Snap! The Young & the Guest List

It was rumored to never happen but we’re glad it did. The party to celebrate 250 of DC’s most influential movers ‘n’ shakers under 40.

Upon entering the stunning Washington Club at Dupont (with hot date wusa9’s Lauren Vance) we took our pics against the wall with the wonderful Joseph Allen and Alfredo Flores and were soon ushered into the next room for check-in. That’s where we exchanged double kisses with list-mates Paul Wharton looking fab hair pulled back & the Corcoran’s Rachel Cothran beautiful in a romantic sheath. We also were greeted by  Washington Life publisher John Arundel who told us about the magnificent venue.. a mansion built at the turn of the century by Chicago Tribune Editor Robert Patterson.  Extraordinary I think!  The mansion provided a warm air for the young on the guest list and then some. Among great history walked wonderful fashion and conversation. Events by Andre Wells superbly kept the rich feel of an ages-old establishment while adding touches of modern flair with bright flowers and strategically placed candles. The Asian fusion spread added a cultural taste and the swagalicious gift bags by Moki Media filled with everything from a Badgley Mischka parfum bottle to earrings by Karen Millen and Queen Bee were exciting to open.

All in all I’d have to say making the list is pretty neat— but after this night I think most would agree making the party is even better 😉
