The weather finally cleared up just in time to finish White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend at the Hay Adams hotel with Thomson Reuters/McLaughlin‘s annual brunch.
Though it was sunny and gorgeous outside, when FBDC hopped on the elevator to head up to the rooftop an attendee asked, “We don’t have to stay the whole time, do we?” We assured her she did not.
The Hill‘s Katy Oczypok was seen snapping photos of guests, and a little later, munching on the brunch fare (sausage, seasoned potatoes, different breads and a tower of fruit). “I think the rain kept a lot of the celebrities in,” she told us with a sigh when asked if she hit up any after parties last night after the WHCD. Cheer up, Oczypok. There’s always next year.
The event was relatively subdued until CBS’ Julie Chen let out a scream. “WE WENT TO USC JOURNALISM SCHOOL TOGETHER!” she said excitedly to her husband as she introduced an apparently long lost college friend.
The loudest TV host in Washington, John McLaughlin, Editor-in-Chief of Reuters Stephen Adler, Author and ex-MSNBCer Pat Buchanan (pictured above wearing what appear to be goggles), Human Events Group Publisher Joe Guerriero accompanied by his wife, and publicist Janet Donovan.

Fug, of course.
