Welcome!

Welcome to the Capital Comment blog!

By: Garrett M. Graff

Our hope here is to bring you inside the Washington scene -- whether it's the week's hottest party, the weekend's biggest black tie gala, the morning's juiciest news, or the latest local must read. Check back here regularly for party pictures, swag reports, and general gossip.

Here we'll be featuring local personalities, showing you what a $1,000 a plate dinner looks like, and also sharing the news from the power lunch crowd at the Palm, Bistro Bis, and the Hay Adams. Who dined at Cafe Milano last night? What head of state was at the Ritz this weekend? What movie is filming in Georgetown? Plus make sure to watch for Harry Jaffe's news from the Washington Post and Kim Eisler for the scoop inside Williams and Connolly's boardroom and the Supreme Court's cafeteria.

If you have a party report, pictures, spottings, or dish you'd like to share, send them my way: ggraff AT washingtonian DOT com.
