Oh what a night. Actually, day and night. Ladies who lunch met yesterday (Tuesday) at Cafe Milano to celebrate the birth date of our dear friend Victoria Michael. There was plenty of champagne, vino, food and flowers, but the real party was last night at Teatro Goldoni, where the “Triple Threat”, Victoria, Kate Michael (no, no relation, nor are either related to sports broadcasters Larry Michael or George Michael), and Sarah Rosenwinkel. The restaurant held the private party reception in the middle room from 8pm – 10pm, but it soon spilled out into the bar and restaurant. By the time 11 rolled around the restaurant was practically at capacity. Some notables were Stan Kasten, Nationals President and Minority Owner, as well as Chair of the Baseball Committee, Bill Hall – both are geared up and excited for the season in the new stadium, and sports writer and show host, Michael Wilbon, who looked well recovered after his minor heart attack earlier this year. Lobbyist David Mercer and real estate mogul John Mason were in attendance as was the now movie producing John Cecchi, who made an appearance after the screening of his film “Under the Same Moon”.
The After Party (this town cannot have a party without a pre-party and and after party for some reason) was at Fly Lounge, where the ladies took over tables and danced the night away.
Happy Birthday to the lovely ladies of the Triple Threat.
Tonight is the Meadow Matches Host Committee Mix & Mingle at L2. You can purchase your tickets to the Courage & Hope Gala still online ($150 for the reception and dinner and only $50 for just the After Party which includes open bar and live music) as well as the Meadow Matches itself – both to support the Courage Cup.
Meanwhile, hopefully you will be at Thursday evening’s DC SCORES Soccer Ball presented by Latin Concepts!
