Voltaggio shines at Chevy Chase Pavilion Party

Star chef Bryan Voltaggio cooked up quite the party last night at his new spot RANGE in Chevy Chase. It was part of Capitol File’s celebration of the Grand Re-Opening of Chevy Chase Pavilion. After words from Mayor Gray the party which started on the first level of the Pavilion moved up to RANGE. There guests helped themselves to unlimited raw bar, fine meats and cheeses, homemade brick oven pizzas and decadent desserts that seemed to never stop coming! My personal favorite was the goat cheese ravioli. The salted caramel sorbet was the perfect way to end the night. Oh and don’t go there and not get one of their homemade sodas. I was craving grapefruit! Overall it was something to celebrate. The new upgrades to the space are mod, open and inviting.

Improv at the Correspondents Dinner

What happens when a cameraman throws a party? A lot of wine, beer and laughs is what we found out. Hats off to CNN’s Jay McMichael for chairing this year’s Congressional Correspondents Dinner.

Wayne Brady’s improv and rap using words from the crowd (you try making filibuster cool) and Prince impersonations were hilarious. Speaker John Boehner was dry but still had some funny moments. The Howard University Thunder Machine drum line was off the charts and kept the party hopping.

NBC Washington was well represented too. Special thanks to my guest Jermaine Paul, Season 2 Winner of The Voice. He was a star in the crowd.. graciously taking pictures with his Washington fans.

My guest The Voice’s Jermaine Paul with Congressman Jim Clyburn. Look for Jermaine’s single “Butterfly Kisses” which comes out Father’s Day!

Media Family Style

Some of my greatest friends are in DC media. It was awesome to get together with a few of them to celebrate my new job. We may work at different outlets but we all love food and lots of it. We gathered at Carmine’s for a family style lunch that included a dessert bigger than Rebecca Cooper’s 3 kids (see photo). It was great to have some of my new co-workers John Schriffen and Rick Yarborough join us too!  More photos by our dear friend Daniel Swartz at Revamp.com
