Filming at Paradise Springs Winery

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to head to Paradise Springs Winery. The weather was magnificent! I met my producer Jason Gittlen and intern Hillary on the grounds where we geared up to shoot a 30 minute Nonstop Scene DC Show. We walked the viewer through everything from the history of the place (It was built in the late 1700’s!) to the vineyard to production.
Extra sweet– a visit from my co-anchor Richard and weekend producer Charlitta! It was indeed a great day filled with fine wine and good friends. Tune in to our first show Monday November 19th at 10PM. Watch NBC Washington NonStop on Comcast 208,VZ FIOS 460 or COX 803.

Fashion’s Night Out

Pounding Rain, 2 and half hours sitting in traffic.. nothing could keep me away from Fashion’s Night Out. I joined good girlfriends to toast FNO Georgetown at the VIP reception held at L2. From their we made our rounds to Dean & Deluca, Nectar Skin Bar, Intermix  and more. We enjoyed Citronelle’s fashion show and great wining and dining at Peacock Cafe’ after hours.  Check out more pictures from DC’s most fashionable night!

Oh and of course you know who had to partake in FNO! Check out her new boots.

Shawn, Me and Elaine with Chef Philippe Reininger

The weather was perfect for an afternoon lunch with the news gals here in DC. This time we gathered at the new J&G Steakhouse on 15th and Pennsylvania. As we enjoyed appetizing fried calamari and rice cracker crusted tuna we laughed about being moms and the new “Go the ___ to Sleep” book that’s all the rave these days amongst parents. When it was entree’ time we were impressed to find out that the steakhouse is vegan friendly! A couple of the gals had no problem ordering. Halibut in a scallion-spicy chili sauce was a popular pick this day. I was also happy to see they have Sips & Bites from 5-7pm on weekdays where you can get smaller portions of their dishes paired with wine at the wine bar.
