We were on hand last night for that massive, weird, and wonderful Washington ritual known as Fight Night, which amazingly in these difficult times once again (for the 19th year) filled the Washington Hilton to the gills and raised $2.8 million for underserved kids in DC.


We thought we'd start off with this picture to be sure you're awake. Michelle, Bethany and Chelsea were among the full complement of Redskins cheerleaders socializing with the 2000 mainly male guests.

87-year old former middleweight world champion Jake LaMotta, known in his day as the Raging Bull (and played in movie of same name by Robert DeNiro in a 1980 Oscar-winning performance), with Caf? Milano owner Franco Nuschese and venture capitalist Mark Ein.

64-year old Smokin' Joe Frazier and longtime friend Lisa Jenkins. Some of you will remember Joe as world heavyweight champion who beat Muhammad Ali in 1971.

Former heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney, onetime Marriott and Northwest Airlines head Fred Malek, and real estate maven Roy Ayers. For those of you who remember the early 80s, Cooney knocked out Ken Norton in one match, then lost the next year to Larry Holmes. Now living in New Jersey, he told us he was hoping for good weather today (he got his wish) to play at Woodmont.

Fight for Children CEO Michela English in between her colleague Skip McKoy and DC Mayor Adrian Fenty.


Legendary Chicago Bear linebacker Dick Butkus, with Brotman Winter Fried president Steve Winter, who put on another meticulously executed event (thus his headphones). We're not esure how a football star satisfied the boxing theme, but no one objected.


Redskinettes danced in the boxing ring. The crowd didn't mind.


The house band shook the ballroom paying Rod Stewart, Bon Jovi, and 50 Cent.


Blood, Sweat, and Tears performed amid the cigar smoke and laser shows. They are celebrating 40 years of somehow staying popular.


Blondes vs. Brunetts (Francis Field, 2425 N Street, N.W. Saturday, 1PM): Help tackle Alzheimer's disease by watching girls tackle each other in the mud. Then follow the victorious hair color to a party at Bread Soda, dinner at Town Hall, and even dance party at Gin and Tonic (all on Wisconsin Ave). This goes till 12:30AM. Tickets are a 20 dollar donation. Go to www.blondesvsbrunettes.com to buy them.

Washington DC Walk Now for Autism (Washington Monument, Saturday, 10AM): Join a team, build a team, and raise critical funds for autism research. To register or for more information, visit DCAutismWalk.org. Proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks.

The Metropolitan Cooking Show and Entertaining Show (Walter E. Washington Convention Center) This weekend learn how to finally cook something other than mac'n'cheese. Famous Chefs like Bobby Flay and Paula Deen will be there too. This event is all day Saturday and Sunday, but don't miss your favorite food network star by visiting www.metrocooking.com

Silent Dance Party in Dupont Circle, tonight from 6:45pm - 10pm. All you need to bring is your headphones and iPod/CD player/8 track, yourself, and perhaps some friends. Be ready to dance at about 6:45, a WHISTLE will be blown to signal the start of the party. Throw on your headphones and quietly get to dancing in the moonlight!
