Goin’ for the Gold

Big shout-out to Josephine lounge, one of DC’s hottest nightspots! Located at 1008 Vermont Ave NW between K and L Str, don’t miss the opportunity to party up with your friends downtown Washington. Click here to see more info and make a reservation.


Washingtonians headed to The Plains, Va, to steeplechase in style at the 71st running of the International Gold Cup Races. It was a perfect excuse to pull out the tweed and tartan, and, um, a few libations.


John Ketcham, Jenifer Carlin, Taylor Rohberger, Joe McKenna, Barrett Jefferds, Elizabeth Martin, Troy Wasilefsky and Sarah McKenna enjoy the idyllic day. Despite their best efforts, they didn’t win the tailgate competition, but if there were an award for best-dressed, we believe they’d prevail.


Or did we speak too soon? Hats are de rigueur at Gold Cup, even for these manly men: Derek Benke, Mike Davis, Todd Savage, Robert Lee, Lee Carroll, Chris Phillips, Chris Bradeon, and Pat Mangan. Do the bottles of beer and Jack compensate for their foppish toppers? Or do they cause them? We’ll let their (hat-lending) lady friends be the judge.


Stout and Teague’s Neel Teague, Valoria Gerald, and Rick Stout. They tell us this outing is the first of several events to mark the company’s 25th year in real estate development. They also guarantee the next one will be “even bigger.”


Goodstone Inn executive chef Tarver King was a judge in the best-tailgate competition and awarded first prize to James Nix-Gomez and family. They won over Tarver with dishes like Cornish game hen and shepherd’s pie. Doesn’t that sound just like your tailgate at RFK?


Teatro Goldoni is quickly becoming the Café Milano of downtown, and Thursday night it applied its cultural and culinary power to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society. Owner Michael Kosmides, right, here with Cardinal Bank president Kevin Reynolds, toasted a full house of happy donors. Michael deployed his chefs, led by Enzo Fargione, to back up guest chef Barry Glassman for a five course tasting menu with dishes like roasted stuffed quail risotto with prosciutto and artichoke hearts, and baked Chilean sea bass with fennel saffron broth. By day, Barry is a financial planner at McLean’s Cassaday, presumably making money as well as he makes fine food.


Congrats to Crystal City for once again putting on a great show for the 30,000 marathoners yesterday who trooped on through (around the 10th mile) —music, food and drink, and glorious sunshine!


Tonight: The Harman Center for the Arts Annual Gala honoring artists in the timely art of interpreting those star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. 7 p.m. Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F Street NW.

 Tomorrow don't miss: The annual Drag Race down 17th Street (from Q to Church streets). Watch some of the most elaborately dressed drag queens of the city sprint in high-heels from Q street all the way to the finish line on Church street. Race starts at 9 but get there early to grab a good vantage point to spot the maverick-iest Sarah Palin of this race!
