Parties You Missed: A glossy Gio Gonzalez bash and a pop-up dinner in Yard’s Park (VIDEO)

A drink with a Nationals star pitcher on a scenic Georgetown rooftop or dinner with 1,400 plus similarly dressed people along the Potomac, neither are bad ways to get your weekend started a bit early. Some Washingtonians did just that last Thursday at the invite-only Diner en Blanc, aka a pop-up picnic, and an intimate Washington Life […]

What Washington wears: costume designers from ‘The Americans’ and ‘House of Cards’ dish

Notice some guy snapping your photo while you grab your morning coffee? Don’t call a cop — that might just be Tom Broecker, the costume designer for the first season of Netflix’s political drama “House of Cards,” doing a bit of research. Broecker’s methods might be unorthodox (“creepy,” as he puts it),  but Jenny Gering, […]

New KenCen chief buys $1.6 million AU Park home

Signing on to be the Kennedy Center’s newest president isn’t the only deal that Deborah Rutter has inked of late.

President Obama has a bucket list! Here’s what he just crossed off.

Traveling in England on Friday, President Obama took a detour to visit Stonehenge, that mysterious, prehistoric monument that has long attracted tourists, conspiracy theorists, pagan partiers — and, apparently, world leaders. According to the pool report, the visit to the ring of stones wasn’t just a photo op for the globe-trotting commander-in-chief. Per the report: […]

One of the Washington Nationals’ most eligible bachelors is ready to pop the question

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez has a sweet theory on how he landed on the summer cover of Washington Life magazine: It was all thanks to his girlfriend of two years (and co-cover star) Bérénice “Léa” Mourés. Once one of the team’s most eligible bachelors, Gonzalez told us, “I don’t think I’d make the cover if she wasn’t on […]

Diner en Blanc comes to D.C. for the first time

No one born after the “Mad Men” era needs an actual excuse to wear white post Labor Day, but just in case archaic protocol prevails there’s Diner en Blanc, the exclusive all-blanc everything pop-up picnic that was founded in Paris nearly 30 years ago and on Thursday finally made its way to Washington after pit stops in Paris, Philadelphia, Singapore […]

‘That’s not okay’: Bill O’Reilly’s slam of State Dept. spokeswoman draws fire

Another day, another pot stirred by conservative host Bill O’Reilly — and this time, there’s return fire coming from the briefing-room podium at the State Department.

Happy Bey-Day! You’ve shown great promise since the beginning #TBT

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles has had quite the career: 17-time Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter, dancer, fashion designer, model and actress. As Queen Bey turns one year older (and wiser) we decided to dig deep into The Post’s archives for a look back. It is Throwback Thursday (#TBT), after all. Let’s travel back to 1999, one of […]

This is a real (possible) TV show: Horror comedy set amid D.C. politics

Because everything in Hollywood is described as “X meets Y,” with the variables representing crazily disparate works, we’re not surprised to hear that the latest Washington-set TV show is being touted as “The West Wing” meets “The Strain.” (That would be the earnest, high-minded NBC political drama mashed up with the gory FX vampire series, respectively.) […]

The White House and ‘Funny or Die’ partner up again with FLOTUS cameo

The Obamas are proving to be quite the fans of comedy Web site “Funny or Die.” First lady Michelle Obama, following in her husband’s footsteps, has now made her own cameo, of course, promoting her healthy eating initiatives. In the video, FLOTUS, starring as herself, opts for a bowl of carrots while watching a faux movie trailer about junk-food zombies. […]

In Washingtonian review, some read a below-the-toque swipe at Jose Andres

A recent review in Washingtonian magazine of America Eats Tavern, the newest offering by celebrity chef Jose Andres, is the kind of take-down that leaves readers cringing (sometimes in delight, because as we know, scathing reviews can make for delicious guilty pleasures). But one particular barb in the write-up that appeared in the mag’s September […]

WHCD couple Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello still going strong

Add red hot romance to the list of swag bag intangibles for next year’s White House Correspondents Association dinner. No one should leave the Hilton without it. The annual fete’s latest matchmaker bragging rights? The impossibly beautiful pair, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello. The new celebrity it couple met for the first time at the dinner in May and […]

Let’s guess which real life ‘politician’ Vince Vaughn is going to play

Feel free to stop me if you’ve heard this one already. A politician gets caught with a prostitute or two (snore), then goes on the run from the FBI (hmm) with a bumbling sidekick in tow (okay), and a drug dealing gang is also hot on his trail (now we’re talking). No, this isn’t the headline of your latest […]

New Washington Post publisher a throwback on the social scene

The installation of Fred Ryan at the top of the Washington Post’s masthead might seem like a break from tradition — after all, the new publisher replaces Katharine Weymouth, the last member of the storied Graham family dynasty to hold a leadership position at the news organization. But Ryan is a throwback to another of the city’s institutions: the […]

Miss America contestants highlight the pageant’s wonkier side (with video)

Before facing the crucible of the swimsuit and talent competitions at the annual Miss America pageant later this week, this year’s crop of aspirants to the crown took a detour, spending some time in Washington, where they aimed to prove that there’s more under those tiaras than just fabulous tresses and a cloud of hairspray. The […]
