Correspondents Dinner

Journalists from all networks .. national and international, print and radio turned out for the annual Correspondents Dinner at the Washington Convention Center. WUSA had a nice little table too. I have to say Rep. Anthony Weiner and The Daily Show’s Larry Wilmore both killed it on stage— and anyone who’s been to these dinners know– this is one crowd that’s tough to crack.

Lindsey Mastis, Mike Hydeck, Anny Hong, Gary Nurenberg, Angie Goff and Ellen Scott.

Baby Shower: Newsies Celebrate Future 'Onesie'

I am so blessed to have incredible women in my life. In the news business many of my colleagues have become my role models. Strong, smart, beautiful and successful at striking the balance between job and family. My deepest thanks to ABC7’s Rebecca Cooper for opening her home to host a sweet shower for me. It was good for the soul to sit and dish with the girls somewhere outside of the crazy never-ending news wheel.

Adorable gifts like this dress! Thank you Nancy!

Oh Snap! Social Safeway Gala

Finally!  The construction is over and the new Social Safeway is here. The opening of the Georgetown grocery store such a big deal even former President Bill Clinton sent a letter to be read at the ceremony. This place is awesome… so much so it may be my weekly stop for produce and sushi on the way home from work to home in Virginia. I couldn’t find anyone more excited about the shop’s completion than my hot date Carissa Maguire who lives just a block from the store. (she returned this morning cause she couldn’t get enough) Between the ‘Safeway’ step n repeat, the rockin’ band near the cafe’ bar and incredible swag- wine and groceries in an eco friendly shopping tote, it was  a night that had DC dancin’ down the aisles.

Carissa eats sushi!

Oh Snap! A 'Money' Lineup

DC’s top political and event fundraisers talked ‘what’s next’  over breakfast at The Liason on New Jersey Ave. BizBash hosted the panel that included fundraising power players like Stephen Geer who led Obama’s online email/online fundraising and Republican mega-bucks-maker The LS Group’s Lisa Spies.  From recent Supreme Court rulings to social media the panel talked about how the process of political fundraising is rapidly changing.
Coming Up: I pick their brain in my upcoming Washington Life Society 2.0 column and hear what Geer says will be big on the web for making money in the 2010/2012 elections.

The Panel: Stephen Geer, Jonathan Mantz, Moderator CBS’ Nancy Cordes, Jan Baran, Juleanna Glover, Lisa Spies
