Wonkette Baracks The Caucus!

Thursday night, a bunch of local Obama groups got together at Bailey’s in Ballston to watch the Iowa caucus results and someone, foolishly, invited us. Why did we go? Frankly, we thought there’d be an open bar. Why did we stay? Well, suddenly Obama was winning and, um, there were cute boys and then I ended up having a really interesting conversation with a lovely woman about how Obama’s camp is using the internet to connect with a respond to supporters that I’ve since forgotten but which actually went beyond this article I’d already read. Intrepid Girl Reporter Liz Gorman joined the party, though, and her pictures are after the jump. Read more on Wonkette Baracks The Caucus!…
 

Megan Carpentier Waterboarded Me, and It Was Torture

newVideoPlayer("Intel_Agency_Snapper.flv", 475, 376);Wonkette readers, I never properly introduced myself when I started in October — and this was because I have been living a lie. I am not, in fact, Jim Newell, the “supposed” 22-year-old brat in Washington who makes mindfuckingly hilarious political jokes and uber-trenchant political observation. I am actually Jim al-Newell, a perceived terrorist with al-Qaeda who has all sorts of fun CIA information and shit like that. I hid this double agent status well until one day, when I was walking around DC with Megan Carpentier and I *stupidly* wore my favorite t-shirt — the one that says “Perceived Terrorist” in big A-rab letters on the front. Megan proceeded to waterboard me and asked all sorts of insidery-like questions, like “What time should we publish the gossip roundup?” Torture, I says! She proceeded to destroy the tape of this session — but oh ho ho, my secret camera caught it all! Watch it above! Death to teh Amerkaz, I’m not going anywhere!

NHFA’s Noche de Gala

newVideoPlayer("latinwonk.flv", 475, 376);We continue to celebrate our last day by presenting scenes from yet another party that we neglected to attend.

The District Line Grand Opening

Last week, local British clothing emporium The District Line opened its flagship store in Georgetown. And because we bought a coat there once and also our friend designed the place and also especially because there was free gin all night we went to their party! And brought the intrepid Liz Gorman, who took pictures! And then we were going to put these pictures up on Monday but we forgot and then it became kind of a hectic week soon thereafter and so now, here they are, finally, the photos from the District Line party.

GQ’s Most Powerful People Party

When GQ put out their list of the most powerful people in Washington, we all had a good laugh at how dumb some of their choices were. Then because we are whores we accepted their invite to a party at Cafe Milano last Monday night (never forget!). Liz Gorman came too, she took pictures. We just drank. Gallery here, random recollections after the jump. Read more on GQ’s Most Powerful People Party…
 

Adams Morgan Day!

Last Sunday was the Adams Morgan Day Festival! Did you go? Because we’re pretty sure you did, it was a total fucking madhouse trying to even cross 18th street that afternoon. Also there was some old-tymey folk bank playing and we were like, really? Banjos and mandolins? That is Adams Morgan’s cultural heritage? Are all the Ethiopians and Latinos secretly poor southern Dust Bowl farmers or something? Anyway — Liz Gorman took some very lovely pictures there that we think you should look at. You’ll find them here. Adams Morgan Day Festival Gallery Read more on Adams Morgan Day!…

The “Beckham” Party

Last week, Liz and Liz went to one of the thousand terrible David Beckham parties that took over DC and then, just as quickly, faded from everyone’s memory. Relive the excitement with Ms. Gorman’s gallery of photos and Ms. Glover’s write-up, after the jump! Beckham-Free Beckham Party Gallery Read more on The “Beckham” Party…
 

The Show is the Rainbow

Last week, Liz Glover and Liz Gorman went to some crazy beatnik art/rock show thing called “The Show is the Rainbow,” where Glover took the above video and Gorman took the below pictures. It’s, uh, mostly safe for work. The Show is the Rainbow Gallery Read more on The Show is the Rainbow…
 

Bob Novak’s ‘Prince of Darkness’ Party

The Modernist Society @ Bourbon

Last Thursday, we walked over to Bourbon to hear, we thought, some dude from Vice talk to some dude from al-Jazeera English about… well, something? It was The Modernist Society’s first monthly party at one of 18th St. last remaining tolerable bars (if you’re upstairs, anyway), and we were there because it was within walking distance.

Artcade Launch Party

Last Friday, DC welcomed new culture magazine artcade with a totally kickass party out in Logan. We sent Liz Gorman to take pictures of the pretty people, pictures which you may see right here. Read more on Artcade Launch Party…
 

The Capitol File “Little Black Book” Party

Last week, Capitol File magazine declared a bunch of losers to be the most notable singles in Washington and then they threw them a party. Your humble editor is decidedly neither eligible nor notable. Liz Glover, though, might be, so we sent her, along with the decidedly notable Liz Gorman, to drink with the douchebags. Above, L. Glover’s video of the night. After the jump, her report, sort of. And, of course, a lovely gallery of Liz Gorman pictures are all included at no additional cost to you, the reader. Enjoy!

Faggot: The Play (Launch Party)

We couldn’t make it to the fundraiser and campaign launch party for Faggot: The Play because, honestly, it sounded a little gay to us, though we did manage to send the lovely Liz Gorman and the distinctly less lovely Intern Greg to check it out. Check out Liz’s photo gallery here and read Greg’s report right after the jump. Faggot: The Play Gallery Read more on Faggot: The Play (Launch Party)…
 

HBO’s ‘Flight of the Conchords’ Screening Party

HBO bought the kids some Sparks, sent a copy of their new funny indie show to the Rock n Roll hotel, and had a little party last Saturday night. Because we were… out of town, we sent the former Intern Nick (last Friday was his last day! Wish him well!) and the intrepid Liz Gorman to cover the shenanigans. Oh, and Andy Rourke was there for some reason. Liz’s pictures are all right here, and Nick’s inspiring report is after the jump. (And for those playing along at home, find our nightlife reporters in their natural habitat hidden somewhere in this gallery). “Flight of the Conchords” Screening Party Gallery Read more on HBO’s ‘Flight of the Conchords’ Screening Party…
