It was a fun happy hour despite the pre-storm. May, Steve and I had some wine before to wait out the storm. We brought a couple Bar-weary people along and had a great time. Because I skipped dinner (RCR knows what I'm talking about), I was drunk rather fast. I had a nice time though chatting with everyone and a special thanks to my boy Steve who even though he does not read blogs, enjoyed the happy hour.
There were a lot of people there and unfortunately, I did not get to chat with as many people as I would have liked to. I did meet some new people, which was great. First, I finally got to meet DC girl who is fabulous. Also, I got to meet the Asian Mistress (sans leather and whip) and enjoyed a nice chat with her. I again was loving The Boy (fine you're not catty!), and we had some excellent laughs. I saw DC Cookie, but really didn't get to chat much. Some day.
Oh, and serious props to Kathryn (and yes, you left way too early) who organized the thing. You'll fulfill those hostess accusations yet! And, to Sara from the butterflynetwork, sorry I forgot your glasses, but we will grab a drink soon for the exchange.
And last but never least; it was great to see the Cleveland Park crew there including the Actor, Chef and Senator and of course, Miss Penny Lane. I don't think I have met the Actor before, and he was very entertaining. The Chef gave me all sorts of useful information about salmon (it's always so damn good), and a little preview of an upcoming post that is just "cheeky" (boo, that was a bad one.) And, of course the Senator, thanks for the dance, you always put up with me as any gentleman would.
