Paws and Cause

Join us TONIGHT, 5:00 PM – 9:00PM, for our Bisnow party at Lotus Lounge, 1420 K St. Half priced drink specials, a free sushi buffet and a DJ! Only $10, but you must register in advance.


Skye, Lima, Portrait Gallery, the Corcoran, and Mazza Gallery. What’s the common thread? Parties!


Last night we joined a Fashion for Paws Hearts and Tails Party hosted by WUSA 9’s  Angie Goff and Blonde Charity Mafia’s Krista Johnson at Skye Lounge. Listen, people, if you went out as much as they do, we’d have you in our issues this often also.


The Washington Post’s Nakeva Corothers and WUSA-TV’s Lindsey Mastis partied til’ the wee hours to raise enough money to send Krista and Angie up the runway for the pups.

Shopping Time

The Scene Bisnow reporter Makeda Saggau-Sackey, Blonde Charity Mafia’s Sophie Pyle, CEB’s Angie Jusino, Shanna Torrey, and Keys4Kids’ Mallory Gray Hancock all loved Confessions of a Shopaholic, when they saw a preview last night at Mazza Gallerie.


In case you think only young people have fun, we snapped this last night at the Portrait Gallery as a huge crowd came out to salute former Virginia Congressman Tom Davis starting his new job at Deloitte.


Alexis Bittar spoke at the Corcoran on Wednesday night about life as a jewelry artist. He said his latest collections of pins were inspired by ‘80s power suits. He’s here with artist Camille Clifton, vintage jewelry and clothing dealer Stephanie Holder, and businesswoman Najwa Saad


We also stopped by Lima Lounge on Wednesday night for a happy hour held by the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans. Former CNN anchor, Rudy Bakhtiar, now head of PR for PAAIA, with other staff, Niaz Kasravi and Babak Hoghooghi, were excited about bringing their community together.


Ready for Valentines Day in pink, Ali Ghatri, Lima’s owner, chats with Farokh Bagha, EVP for Mercedes in Germantown. “PAAIA is the first organization that has a non-political approach for Iranian Americans to come together as one to change negative images,” Ghatri told us.


Tonight, Friday, February 13, 5:00 - 9:00 PM, join the Bisnow team at Lotus Lounge, 1420 K St. DJ, half-priced drinks and free sushi buffet. Only $10, register in advance.

Tonight, Feb. 13, 9:00 PM, after the Bisnow party, join Mix’ Tommy McFly for the first annual Mix 107.3 M-e-e-t Market social for mingling and fun at the Hard Rock Café, 999 E St. Three winners will get a shopping spree when they dislodge a credit card from a giant block of ice.
