Red Carpet? How passé. On Friday night, we were on hand as the eco-conscious recipients of the Jane Goodall Institute Global Leadership Awards walked the green carpet at The Ronald Reagan Building.


Who knew 007 was going green? Dr. Jane Goodall and Global Leadership awardee Pierce Brosnan. The former Bond was honored along with his wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, a former environmental correspondent for ABC and long time environmentalist. And, of course, Dr. Goodall, the famed anthropologist who started working with chimpanzees in Tanzania half a century ago, may well be the original environmentalist.


Taking a breather after election season, Master of Ceremonies Anderson Cooper with Dr. Goodall. Senator-elect Tom Udall (D-NM), Green Mountain Coffee, and three youth leaders were also recognized for their green leadership.


Little Miss Sunshine, Abigail Breslin, who attended with her brother, actor Spencer Breslin.


Local eco activists Stephen and Irene Bartell at the cocktail reception. TMZ paparazzi (Bisnow wannabes) were said to be skulking through the Reagan building all night and the Brosnans were mobbed when they left their hotel. Is Washington the new LA?


At the 2008 Builders Ball at the National Building Museum this weekend, otherwise well-dressed guests accepted looking hospitalized for a couple minutes to get that sweet taste of 100 percent air in their lungs. We say taste, and we mean it. Hook yourself up to this oxygen bar and breathe in flavors including cinnamon, orange citrus, peppermint, cherry, and more. Above, Davis Construction’s Jennifer Langley enjoys spearmint air. Seems bizarre, right? That wasn’t the half of it. Performers jumped around on pogo-legs, females danced around with hula hoops, and people walked around dressed like potted bushes and trees, poking unsuspecting passersby. The whole night seemed like a trippy, surreal dream. Hmm, what exactly was in those oxygen tanks?


Think “Lemongrass” sounds bad? That’s nothing compared “Burnt meat,” “Moth Balls,” and “Skunk Cabbage.”
