Caps Care!

Passionate about real estate? Love sales and service? Our friends at Urban Igloo continue to thrive in their Eye Street storefront office across from the Farragut West Metro, and the apartment finding company is looking for go-getters to join the team. Info here.

 

Over the weekend we went to two birthday parties, and last night we went to the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center to gamble and dance with the Caps—for a worthy cause, Caps Care Casino Night.

We snapped superstar left wing Alex Ovechkin on a break from Wii Bowling, flanked by Caroline Suplizio and Ana Utley. He’s a lot better at scoring goals than knocking down pins.

Caps players

We munched on crabcake sliders, smoked quail breast, and tandoori salmon skewers while checking out the silent auction and raffles full of Caps memorabilia. Caps players wore a red rose and took breaks from roulette to sign autographs.

Bruce Boudreau was at the card tables with Travelers' Karen Howell and Phyllis McKenzie.
