We met up with our lovable pal Bill Regardie yesterday at Café Deluxe in DC. Man, he’s got good stories from the old days. When we said we needed to take a picture, he grabbed the nearest cloth napkin. “Tell your readers I’m hiding from my bankers,” he said.
On the field for Nats/Mets batting practice Tuesday: BLT Steak’s GM Adam Williamowsky, Douglas Development’s Matthew Jemal, Bisnow’s own Elliott Bisnow, MRP Realty’s Charley McGrath, GGA’s Lindsay Olup, Clark Realty’s David Ritchey, and Bognet Construction’s Jennifer Bognet. Jennifer’s jetting off to the Caribbean tomorrow thanks to a surprise b-day gift from hubby and Bognet prez, Jim. By the way, we won, 9-8!
And over in a Sky Box at the same game, Cassidy & Pinkard hosted 40 brokers for chicken fingers, hot dogs, and slaw. Above, Cushman’s Brian Schmergel, Cassidy’s Tim Summers, Cushman’s William Tidwell, Jake Group’s Anneli Werner, Larsen’s Dan Brennan, Cassidy’s Dave Scully, JLL’s Dave Stoudt, CBRE’s Charlie Carroccio, and Cassidy’s Conor Murphy.

Also at the game, Nats owner Mark Lerner (second from right) huddles with Holland & Knight’s David Silver, left, and Normandy’s Gavin Evans and Ray Trevisan.
A little fancy for a ball game, don’t ya think? Oops…this was Tuesday’s other ball: SneakerBall IV at the National Building Museum. What you can’t tell is that they’re all wearing tennis shoes. From left, Liza Hutchinson and SureScripts CEO Kevin Hutchinson, Bernstein’s Mary Ann Best, Cushman’s Dave Millard, Gensler’s Gigi Webb and MRP’s Bob Murphy. The Baltimorean in Dave was happy to meet childhood hero Frank Robinson, who was inducted into the Greater Washington Sports Alliance 2007 Hall of Champions along with U Md Athletic Director Debbie Yow and former Redskin Bobby Mitchell.
Also in sneakers: Pounds Properties’ Darryl Pounds, Fox Architects’ Mark Strandquist, CBRE’s Pat Marr, HarVest Bank of Maryland CEO Jack Hollerbach, and CBRE’s Ernie Jarvis.
CBRE’s Merdith Lapier, HITT’s Steve Richbourg, and Equis’ Susan Stoudt and Theo Bell.
