Happy 2010!

Hey, this is your New Year's Resolution speaking. Let's do this thing! Results Gym is here for you. Don't delay. See ad at right.

We welcomed the New Year all over town, including a huge event at the Building Museum, the grand opening of new club DISTRICT, and parties at the City Tavern Club, Park Hyatt, and Rookery. But we started it off at an elegant private party.

At a sit-down dinner for 48 at the home of attorneys Carolyn Lamm and Peter Halle, we snapped Democratic consultant Kandy Stroud and Innocents at Risk founder Debby Sigmund. We love the Christmas colors; now it’s back to basic black.

Long-time NBC-4 News anchor Barbara Harrison, who announced that night she’s planning to stop doing the 5-7 AM news in favor of special projects and in-depth profiles (although she’ll keep doing the 11 AM news); hostess with the most-est ABA prez Carolyn Lamm; US District judge Paul Friedman; and ambassador and Coordinator for Communications/Information Phil Verveer, who’s at the State Dept. with wife Melanne, ambassador for global women’s issues.

Before they dashed out to ring in the New Year at new club DISTRICT, we snapped Austin Bisnow, who’s interning in NYC this month, and former Miss Teen DC Jasmine Niernberger.



About 500 guests rang in 2010 at the grand opening of DISTRICT in Adams Morgan, launching a unique restaurant/bar/nightclub that will be a major hotspot.
