Correspondents’ Dinner: John McLaughlin’s Wrap-Up Brunch
Comments () | Published April 23, 2007
The view from the Hay-Adams roof.

What: Brunch hosted by John McLaughlin

Where: The rooftop of the Hay-Adams, overlooking the White House and monuments beyond.

When: Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Who: Washington's older socialite set, and primarily people who didn't stay up all night partying.

Food: A tasty buffet spread heavy on muffins, danishes, and other carbs perfect for a morning-after meal.

Drink: Mimosas and champagne.

Scene: The final event of the three-day long weekend drew a crowd of over a hundred to the rooftop and its glorious and inspiring view. The host himself rolled in about an hour late to mingle with folks ranging from Desperate Housewives' James Denton to Morgan Fairchild to AOL founder James Kimsey (who did spend a late night out among the parties), columnist Margaret Carlson, Fox's stylish Chris Wallace, and even MSNBC's Tammy Haddad, who like the Energizer Bunny still somehow had a reserve of energy at the end of the weekend's lengthy festivities.

Bold Face Names: 3 (out of 5)
Swankiness: 3 (out of 5)
Food/Drink: 3 (out of 5)
4 (out of 5)

Total Score: 13 (out of 20)
