Big shout-out to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC! Don’t miss their Faux Real Bash event at Madame Tussauds this Sat, Oct 25, at 7:00 PM. Attend and win a real diamond necklace!  For tickets, call 703-698-7080 or contact nanrmhc@comcast.net and for more info click here.


On Tuesday, we tracked the Young Hospitality Industry Professionals to Grand Hyatt’s Cure Bar & Bistro, where they networked and set sights on ’09. If the way these meeting planners organize an event for themselves indicates what we’ll see from associations that employ them, you’re in for some hoppin’ conferences—and a few free drinks—in the coming year.


Event organizers: Transportation Management Services’ Dan Sherman, National Apartment Association’s Megan Shannon and American Academy of Physician Assistants’ Carlos Pelham. Dan’s been YHIP director since it officially organized in February and tells us anyone who is “young at heart” can come to their six yearly events for the bargain-basement price of nada! (Sponsors, however, can contact Dan).


Optical Society of America’s Brooke Hirsch, National Association of Home Builders’ Monica Sober, Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Meredith Brown and Meeting Priorities’ Lauren Kramer. Lauren specializes in academic and medical meetings, so no surprise her next event is for the National Medical Association. She also tells us her first job out of school was working for Paul Newman’s “Energy Action,” a non-profit dedicated to promoting alternative energy. Though Lauren wouldn’t tell us how long ago that was, she did say Cool Hand Luke had the bluest eyes she’d ever seen.


The Hyland Group’s Ryan Keedy with National Telecommunications Cooperative Association’s Melony Bildhauer and Christina Childs. Melony says she’s full of useless facts: Did you know the pre-election ‘Skins game has determined every presidential winner since 1936? If they win Nov. 3 (vs. the Steelers), the incumbent party stays in; if they lose, the Dems take the White House. (And, of course, if it goes into overtime, that must mean the Supreme Court gets to decide.)


National Apartment Association’s Justin Barker, Destination DC’s Nyree Neil, Hyatt’s Kjirsten Hurlburt, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development’s Takiyah Jefferson and Colleen Bailey, and Studley’s Adam Schindler. Justin must’ve thought we said “close your eyes” for this picture, in which case he would’ve been the only one following directions.
