After POTUS shocked all with a veiled reference to college marijuana use (“I remember when Buzzfeed was just something I did in college around 2 AM”) and after he made them chuckle with a little dig on his age, etc. (“I’m not the strapping young muslim socialist I used to be”)… then after Conan gave up on his own giggles… and THEN after everyone fought the crowds and traffic, there were the afterparties.
Taking over the City Museum-turned-Carnegie Library event space, Capitol File magazine held its annual bash, this year in conjunction with the Bipartisan Policy Center, and brought in decidedly more local funfinders than out-of-town stars, though the space was filled with frivolity. Interactive sponsored suites — and a VIP Lounge styled by Syzygy Events International — featured fun like a lipstick touch-up station and a unisex fragrance bar courtesy of Kilian by Hennessy.
Comedian Chris Tucker‘s arrival was the excitement of the evening.
Attendees included former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman, ABC7’s Britt McHenry, NBC meteorologist Doug Kammerer and more. See who was Spotted & Snapped by KSM’s Jack Conroy:
