Big welcome to new sponsor Patriot Contracting.  The Ashburn firm is busy with projects for the Peterson Companies at National Harbor and JBG Rosenfeld at Woodland Park Crossing.  Welcome aboard!


Don't worry, we're not going to keep writing about Nats Park every issue. But, wow, nothing like a winning team, even if the record is just 1-0. And, you know, we would have been happy if the only thing to report was no rain, but how 'bout that dramatic 9th inning finish-against the Braves, no less. Won't get much better than this. 


We had an all-access pass, but for some reason they made us stand behind a net during the action.  It still looked pretty cool.

In the swank Presidential Club (buffet piles of gourmet steaks, fish, hot dogs to eat, while you're watching indoor batting practice), Redcoats Inc's EVP Mack Wells, left, with Tishman Speyer's Randy Lawson, ING's Marc DeLuca, Cassidy & Pinkard's Paul Collins, Brookfield's Jim Hedges, and Cassidy's James Cassidy.  Essentially these guys are all Mack's customers: Bethesda-based Redcoats provides custodial services for 80M SF a day, and services many of their buildings. They also have two well-known subsidiaries:  Admiral Security and DataWatch systems.  Mack's son, also in the business, grew up with James, but Mack keeps most of those early James stories secret.


White Star Investment's Craig Bernstein and Cardinal Bank CEO Bernard Clineburg.  Cardinal had eight execs on hand, so could have fielded a team if the Braves didn't show; we coaxed out of Bernard the fact he was a Little League all star in York, Pa, a southpaw pitcher and first baseman.  By the way, that glow on his face is not just the baseball kleig lights but the fact he's basking in well-deserved congratulations for tying with Boston's State Street at the end of 2007 for the highest credit quality of any bank in the country:  no non-accruals or non-performing loans! Craig, who many of us remember from Cushman, has spent the last year with the Bajaj family helping handle their real estate portfolio, most recently planning the redevelopment of the 120k SF Loudoun Valley Shopping Center in Purcellville.


In one of the Lincoln Suites, developer Jim Abdo hosted a bunch of fellow fun-lovers:  colleague Eric Price, Forrester's Rick Forrester, Bernstein Companies' Adam Bernstein, Crowell & Moring's Jose Cunningham, Bernstein's Marc Duber and Fairfield Residential's Andy Montelli.


In a rare picture of him with a woman on each arm (that's a joke, folks) AOL co-founder Jim Kimsey with PR mavens Victoria Michael and Pam Sorensen.


Is "Lexington Seven" a new poker game?  Nah, it's a new mixed-used office park next to Howard Hughes Medical Institute offering finished office sites for sale-enough to justify a broker (not poker) party last week hosted by developer Capital Associates at the Wildfire Grill in Tysons.  From left, Randall Hagner's AJ Wood, CBRE's Sareh Khajehnouri, Cassidy's Chris Lucey, and CB's Joe McDonnell. CB reps CA on the sales and leasing.


Earlier this month, designers Barbara Mullenex and David Owen of OPX were on site in Monrovia where they are assisting BET founder Bob Johnson to develop a luxury hotel on the coast of Liberia in conjunction with the Clinton Global Initiative.


The Bark Ball will be here before you know it:  On Saturday June 7 the Washington Humane Society is celebrating man's best friend by throwing the only black-tie gala for the four-on-the-floor crowd. So spiff up your pup and be sure to contact Studley's Olivia Millar here if you'd like to sponsor.
