DC Magazine Celebrates Men of Style, Snubs FishbowlDC

Last night at Carnegie Library, DC Magazine hosted its annual Men of Style party, recognizing the most stylish men in the region. Neither FishbowlDC Editor Patrick Tutwiler or myself were recognized. WTF?!

Those who were recognized in the April issue  include Michael Beckerman, CEO of the Internet Association; Jonas Singer, co-owner of Blind Dog Café; Gregory O’Dell, president and CEO of Events DC; Rich Dinning, senior general manager of Tyson’s Galleria; Philippe Lanier, head of strategic finance for Eastbanc; Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton; and Eric Burka, managing principal of Streetsense.


The party was pretty rocking. Beats by Washington Talent Agency’s Chaos. Oysters by Oysters XO – whose shuckers wielded buckets of mollusks and a plethora of signature sauces between party guests. A Bullett and jerky bar. A giant Light Bright (see below). Formality was minimal, with DC Mag‘s dapper Michael McCarthy offering brief remarks.

In attendance: The Men of Style -obviously, DC Magazine’s McCarthy and Peter Abrahams, Nevin Martell, Pamela’s Punch’s Pamela Sorensen, K Street Magazine’s Kate Michael, Jeff Dufour, Cori Sue Morris of Bitches Who Brunch, Moki Media’s Dannia Hakki and Maha Hakki, Aaron Winkler, Jayne Sandman, Corcoran’s Rachel Cothran, Jennifer Vinson, and Mark Drapeau.
