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.

One of the biggest political scandals hit the big screen where it all went down–here in D.C. at the World Premiere of the movie and we caught up with the star. Watch my WUSA9 TV report below:

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.
