No, this is not a Jeopardy category, but an August category—when we have just a variety of odds and ends as befits the end (say it ain't so!) of the summer. But in an effort to rouse you from your slumber so you can be ready for September, we start with a contest!


So look alive, Bisnow readers! Here's the question: What is this ING Clarion asset from which this 4th floor picture was taken? Hint: The building gets its name from a career US Army officer who served as a general, and after which the adjacent park is named. Winner gets lunch at BLT with two friends hosted by ING's Marc DeLuca and Jones Lang's Bobby Schwartz. (Second prize is two lunches with DeLuca and Schwartz. That's a joke, folks. But first prize is for real.) Send answer to PrizeWinner@bisnow.com.



We guess so, because Jones Lang brokers gathered (with a bunch of friends from HFF, Lowe, and others) Thursday evening at Smith & Wollensky to test drive some Trinidads and Romeo y Julietas. JLLers, from left: Pat Casey, Mike Rabel, Matt Scholtes, Brian "Seabass" Saal, Brandon Flickinger, Pete Rowan, Brad Allen, and Jonathan Wasserstrum. Seabass Saal gets his nickname, we learned, from the call sign of a helicopter he piloted in the Navy. Unsated by the cigar diversion, Seabass spent yesterday visiting Virginia wineries. He needs to pack in the fun, because shortly he will be consumed watching Navy football and rooting for the defeat (like last year) of Army and Notre Dame.


The Jubilee Support Alliance was also out Thursday evening enjoying a beautiful charter between SW and Old Town—in the process raising money for its mission of affordable housing in the Adams Morgan area. Among the 90 real estate supporters on board: Jones Lang's Chanda Gailey, OTJ Architects' Laura Knox, Boston Properties' Katie Sacripanti, and Vornado's Jordan Brainard.


Pillsbury's Jeff Utz and Ben Lee, Reno & Cavanaugh's Sarah Molseed, and Clark Construction's Jessica Hubley. Jeff's about to shift over from the auxiliary board to the main board for a six year term. He reminds us that Jubilee was formed in 1984 and has helped 1000 residents in seven buildings. By day, he's been working at Pillsbury on zoning for TDR expansions and on a variety of issues for City Vista. This weekend he took his mountain bike on both the Mt. Vernon and C& O Trails, and is thinking about a trip to Argentina or Turkey before year's end.


Ashley Terban, Hickok Cole's Rhea Vaflor, Winston & Strawn's Ashley Sullivan, and GW's Adrienne Williams.


Mosaic Urban Partners' Nia Francis, Metropolitan Development's Rachael Preston, and Montgomery County House Opportunity Commission's Andrew Zaleski.


Cassidy and Pinkard's James Cassidy and his 3 week old daughter Chloe.   


Bisnow COO Doug Anderson's 6-month old son, Paul, who's become an expert on mezz financing. Doug's become an expert on Itsy Bitsy Spider.


Bisnow About Town Editor Stacey Pfarr's 10-day old son, Ollie. Stacey reports she was calling him Ollie G because in his little LED tanning bed, he looked like Ali G.


Okay, this is not a human baby, but a car babyPerkins & Will DC head Rusty Meadow in his Smart Car!


Your ancient publisher came to DC in the mid-70s to work on the Hill and recalls going on a couple of junkets sober fact finding missions back then with some figures who are currently in the news. So this weekend he went to a box of old photos to see what he could find:


Here's a picture we took of Joe Biden on a trip through South Africa in late 1976. Despite the wide lapels and yellow pants, there is no truth to the story he was the model for Austin Powers.


And being bipartisan, here's a picture we took of John McCain in 1978 in Norfolk, Va., where, as Navy liaison in the Senate, he helped carry our bags and here showed us how to steer the USS Forrestal or some such ship. Wonder whatever happened to these guys?
