The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is heating up and invitations to the surrounding parties are starting to pour in.
Today we get details on John McLaughlin’s infamous Sunday brunch that’s now hosted with Thomson Reuters. This is one where punchy people with hangovers gather over eggs and try to hold semi-coherent conversations the day after the big dinner. The fare and views at the Hay Adams are always spectacular — think fresh pineapple, strawberries, scrambled eggs, chocolate croissants accompanied by McLaughlin’s loud, scratchy voice.
As is now becoming customary with these parties, there will be no crashing. You must snag an invite or prepare to be embarrassed at the door.
