Cauc-tails at Elisir

Washington media mixed it up at the new Itailian restaurant and bar Elisir right on 11th Street in the Penn Quarter. In the spirit of 2012 and a photo finish in Iowa we had fun with our own straw poll.. choosing the best cocktails all of which were paired with a candidate. Much like the recent caucuses the top dog status went to Romney– or the cocktail named “The bain of My Existence.” No Santorum in second place here… that award went to Ron Paul’s “IchBin Anyn non-inerventionist.” Familiar faces included Nikki Schwab, Kate Michael, Tommy McFly, Judy Kurtz and food writer Jordan Wright. Special thanks to kind hosts Chef Enzo Fargione and Janet Donovan. The food was delicious too and authentic! Photo credit: Neshan Naltchayan and KStreetKate.

Dinner party and the pig

Nothing like some gourmet suckling pig wrapped in crackle to be a reason to congregate! I enjoyed hanging with women leaders in media and business at Art and Soul near Capitol Hill. Executive Chef Wes Morton wowed the crowd of friends with his 4 courses family style dinner. It included an heirloom melon salad and the milk fed pig with egglplant casserole. There was also a local cheese board with fresh honey comb. Apparently honey is the new thing to pair cheese with these days!

Morning Glory Private Screening

Thanks to all who came out for the private screening of news comedy  Morning Glory starring Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams.  Big shout outs to members of the 9NEWS morning team who stayed out on a school night: Andrea, Mike, Kristine and Producer Dan and Heather!

We had a great night and enjoyed seeing our colleague Mike Hydeck in the opening scenes playing a local anchorman. His performance (along side Colin Powell’s daughter) was bravo bravo! Special thanks to Paramount Pictures and Allied Marketing for helping organize the feature presentation affair. Morning Glory is now in theaters.

 

 

 

 

DC Cupcakes Premiere Party & Screening

Georgetown Cupcake’s sisters Sophie Lamontagne and Katherine Kallinis were looking more perfect than a dozen Red Velvets on Valentine’s Day

WATCH: Sophie & Katherine dish with Angie on what to expect

TLC threw a small affair at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown to celebrate and screen the latest reality show to come out of the Washington: DC Cupcakes.  Based of the small cupcake business that has made monumental booms in just two years the series is part of the network’s summer lineup. In addition to indulging in the sweet treats which were everywhere you turned… we got a sneak peak at the show’s first episode set to air this Friday at 10PM.  Look for some sisterly tension in the series opener along with some cute ‘mommy’ humor and one particular character Andres who steals the show and has some pretty awesome hair.
