Geek 2 Chic: Nerds turned trendsetters

With NBC News Photographer Jim Long aka @newmediaJim

Mission Accomplished (and in style!) Our area’s biggest Geeks transformed into real trendsetters at Geek 2 Chic 2011. Held at the newly renovated Bloomingdale’s in Chevy Chase the guys really worked the catwalk busting out everything from the moonwalk to the… splits! PLEASE if you have video of this let me know!

Special shout out to NFTE, the group benefiting from the night. The group has helped thousands of youth from low-income neighborhoods become successful in the world of business. Microsoft and Bloomingdale’s presented the event and The Aba Agency directed the show.  Mark Drapeau of Microsoft did an excellent job serving as Executive Director. We’re looking forward to the grand opening of the new Microsoft Store at Tysons Corner later this month too! (Most photos by Revamp)

Reporting for Angie’s Army this monday… 
Aviation Jubilee: Did you know Angie’s Army has it’s very own pilot reporter? Rob Edmonds is back and this time he’s going scouting in the skies. Rob tells us the Flying Circus Aerodrome and the Prince William County R/C Fliers got together to provide an afternoon of entertainment and education for hundreds of area Cub Scouts. It was to celebrate their annual Aviation Jubilee. The scouts were enthralled as vintage biplane acts and modern radio control demos filled the Fauquier Skies. They even got the chance to spend some time up close with the pilots and equipment.
 
Pawtini Happy Hour: Oh the doggy days of summer. Alex Naini, along with Miss DC international Chelsey Sophia Rodgers, Cara and Nicole attended the first Fashion for Paws Pawtini happy hour at the W Hotel’s Patio. 20-percent of the bar benefited the region’s animals in need.
