Southland Premiere!

Reside in the heart of the U St revival: Check out The Flats at Union Row at 14th & V. Open loft designs and European-inspired kitchens. More info.

Last night we went to the Washington Antiques Show preview party, Phillips Gallery, a birthday party, and a BCS viewing party. But first we visited the National Museum of Crime and Punishment to salute Southland lead actor Michael Cudlitz.

Michael is here with WKYS DJ Cynnamixx, and this was snapped just before the DC premiere screening last night at the Park Hyatt. The fast-moving drama about the lives of cops, criminals, victims, and their families, formerly on NBC, will now air on TNT. 

Crime and Punishment Museum COO Janine Vaccarello with Michael. You can catch the commercial-free premiere next Tuesday.

Happy Birthday, Bill!

We also stopped by Cafe Milano to wish DC Sports Commissioner Bill Hall happy birthday. He’s in the middle, flanked by Washington Nationals VP Greg McCarthy and Councilmember Jack Evans, and by DC 50’s News Plus host Mark Segraves, Federal News Radio’s Amy Morris, and WTOP’s Mark Plotkin. Now we expect all our teams to get into playoffs this year!

BCS Champs!


Last night, we also stopped by the third floor of Public Bar for a private viewing party to watch Texas vs. Alabama for the 2010 BCS Championship and snapped Formula Sports and Entertainment Group’s Jason Sickels with entrepreneur Amy Freeborn.


These Texas fans got pumped up in the fourth quarter, when it looked for a few minutes like they might win even without Colt McCoy: NIH’s Jen Barb, BASE Productions Jason Mergott, Deloitte’s Brian Leatherwood, party host LexisNexis’ Amanda Deatherage, and makeup artist Megan Riddle.
