About Guest List

Guest List is Washingtonian’s monthly roundup of the fantasy cast we’d like to see for dinner this month.

A monthly roundup of people we’d like to have over for drinks, food, and conversation—plus one person we definitely would not.

Cherise Rhyns

The new general manager of DC’s historic Lincoln Theatre takes over after ten years at the 9:30 Club.

Tony Carnevale

The Georgetown professor led the effort to build a database that tracks colleges’ return on investment.

Lance Collins

The ex–Cornell dean will head up Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus, opening this fall in Alexandria.

Mary Kane

As US diplomats catch flak from their own government, she’s opening a diplomacy museum in DC.

Scott Van Pelt

The area native is moving his ESPN show to DC—and planning a go-go theme song.

Disinvited!

Jerry Falwell Jr.

He wanted to disenfranchise parts of Northern Virginia that house many federal workers.
