Yeas & Neas: We Represented, Yo
A kind blogger forwarded me her invite (thanks again) to the DC Examiner Yeas & Neas party so I grabbed my hot date Kathryn and off we went.
My expectations were to see colorful “famous for DC” types and perhaps hear some gossip about gossip columnists.
I’ll be honest, if it wasn’t for Mike Grass, Mr. WaPo Express, the event would have been a bust. Not only is Mike great for pointing out who is who, but he usually has a little back story to keep such stuffy events fun and interesting.
Kathryn and I were also treated to meeting Mr. Wonkette, Alex Pareene, (sporting a very sharp corduroy suit) and the lovely Wonkette photographer Liz (PS Liz: just give me the word, sista) who were getting some needed beer and respite from all Foley all the time.
And aside from seeing Patrick Gavin (Um, he was wearing a red tie!!!) and some truly heinous happy hour wear (is that shirt comprised of two Punky Brewster scarves tied together???), there was little else to see except for several more glasses of Merlot.
Oh, I absolutely cannot forget to mention that I had a great chat with the lovely Brunch Bird and her charming significant other. She’s a hottie my friends, regulation.
And the goodie bags. I lifted this photo (from Miss Bird's post) of one of our "swag" items --a bottle of Yeas & Neas wine --as well as a rather large DC Examiner wine key (the gift that keeps on giving) and copy of said paper. Lovely.
So maybe it's not fair of me to judge this party a snooze, particularly since my standards may be a wee bit high considering my last event at the University Club was filled with professional poker players, cigars and Hard A. So, I'll just say, like the fat girl at the prom, I was just happy to be invited.
Oh, and a great dinner with Mike and Kathryn at 15 Ria followed by drinks at Lucky Strike w/ K’s BP certainly did increase the quality level to make it a very nice evening spent.
