Last night, our favorite bastions of democracy stormed the Mayflower to recognize DC Vote's 10th anniversary fighting to secure full voting rights. A silent auction preceded dinner, with items including a night on the CW Party Bus, dinner with satirist Marc Russell, and Wizards tix in the City Council's private box. You can read all about it . . . but only if you promise to vote on November 4.


Daniel Solomon received the Champion of Democracy Award for his service to District, including co-founding DC Votes in a church basement 10 years ago. He tells us democracy is a family passion: His 7-year-old twin sons already have sights set on becoming Senators. He's joined by filmmaker Aviva Kempner, director of Yoo-hoo, Mrs. Goldberg, a documentary about one of TV's earliest female sitcom stars. It's scheduled for release in 2009.


Busboys and Poets owner Andy Shallal, at right with wife Marjan, joined Fairfax Public Schools' Erin Albright and husband Jim, a DCPS teacher. Busboys just opened a third location at 5th and K and Andy says it'll be hosting an NAACP election night bash.


Eastbanc's Philippe Lanier, center, introduced us to the rest of "Table 29": Tyler Naeke, Amy Zimmerman, Janet Kim, Alexis Palascak, and Charles Lancaster. Philippe tells us the downtrodden market comes with lots of opportunities and Eastbanc is raising funds in Kuwait, NY, and locally, so it can invest in large parcels of land in DC. We learned that everyone in this shot is a real estate lover, but more importantly, they're all DC voters.


The vino flowed at the Jubilee Support Alliance's annual wine tasting last week. Landau's Terence Uhl and AGA's Kevin Hardardt toast the occasion, which included a silent auction and great prizes (free wine bottles, of course). JSA provides affordable housing, career training, and life improvement strategies for residents in the Adams Morgan community.


Wine Review Online's Michael Franz and JSA's Claude Thomas. Michael, who makes even the most complex wines accessible to the uninformed (that's us!), has hosted the event for the past 11 years.
