i had such a good time tonite at the “soft” opening of the great room at the doubletree hotel in bethesda. i covered the event for washington life magazine and met so many great people – including a fun couple who lives in my building…how crazy is that? they were like “you look like this photographer who lives in our building…” what do you know? the blonde photographer! it turns out he’s an amazing plastic surgeon so i introduced him to my dear friend aubryn from hela spa who was there with the ever-stylish lotta…the owners of the hotel also made an appearance along with tons of bethesda + dc socialites…i got to chat with two lovely ladies from panama one of my favorite countries! there were incredible performers, delicious sushi, lots of wine, and an entire room full of gorgeous, decadent chocolate creations.
bravo doubletree, what a great evening!
the elephant symbolized wealth + prosperity…the man on stilts? well, he sang for hillary clinton last night.
