Last night, along with three billion other people, we watched the Oscars. Our viewing party was at the Georgetown Club.
We snapped the party hosts, Jack and Sharon Casey,along with Lisa and Cliff Beek. Both women are spending a lot of time renovating and redecorating: as club president, Sharon has been refurbishing the historic property, while Lisa is in the process of redoing a new apartment – but luckily has the services of her daughter Jennifer, who runs an interior design company in NYC.
Red Carpet Party!
We also watched the Oscars at a Red Carpet private party at Lost Society, as guests dressed like their favorite celebs. We snapped Luna's Hair Designs' Pana De Paz and professional organizer Michele Montclair.
Lia Seremetis, SustainBiz's Michelle Lapinski, and Pink Line Project's Philippa Hughes.
Allen Murashige, Tiffany Potter, and DBS's Omar Malick.
Washington Film Institute's John Hanshaw, DJ Donald Syriani, and Georgetown University's Adrien Diarra.
The Lego Movie may be tops in the box office, but last nightFrozen won the Academy Award for best animated film. Recently, legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold tweeted, “Good to see the big screen success of #TheLEGOMovie. If you liked it, check out the video from my Who Do You Love? released last year.” Of course, we're happy to be reminded, since it was written with, and sung by, our own Austin Bis.
We headed to the Howard Theater Friday night to hear the musical stylings of Questlove, the Grammy Award-winning frontman of the Roots and in-house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. We snapped the famed drummer, who traded in his sticks for turntables as he blended beats from music ranging from hip-hop to reggae, from Beyonce to Damian Marley.
The DJ, producer, drummer, actor, author, and designer told us he woke up at 5:00 AM that day to tape The Tonight Show before heading to DC. Questlove said he started performing at 13 and, 30 years later, still he can't get enough of the industry.
His music knowledge stood out in his performance, which had his audience singing and dancing. In fact, Questlove's music savvy has brought him recognition by Rolling Stone as #2 in The 50 Top Tweeters in Music. Here, Sculpt DC's Jordan Petitt, Edelman's Ashley Lowes, Sotheby's Morgan Markey, and DC Chamber of Commerce's Erin Levy.
Roadside Development's Christie Morgan sent in a photo of a snow angel she made with friends at the Purcellville Gateway center. We're hoping it's the last snow this year!
