April 12, 2015

"Welcome to the long-awaited launch of W Chevy Chase," says Dr. Tina Alster. Having established the first freestanding dermatologic laser center in the world – the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery- in 1990, this world-renowned dermatologist and Georgetown resident is now expanding her practice.

The new facility will offer virtually the same services available as their K Street offices – making it more convenient than ever for patients to receive state-of-the-art dermatologic procedures for which they are known. As she explains to The Georgetown Dish, "My colleagues, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi and Dr. Rebecca Kazin, will be spearheading this new venture and are already seeing patients in the beautifully designed space." 

Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi has been with the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery for 14 years and is an internationally-known author and lecturer on cosmetic dermatology and cutaneous laser surgery and currently serves as the Co-director of Laser Surgery.   Dr. Tanzi pursued her medical education at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York, where she graduated with highest honors.

Dr. Rebecca Kazin is a Board-certified dermatologist who joined their dynamic team 18 months ago with nearly a decade of experience directing the Johns Hopkins Dermatology and Cosmetic Center.  

The Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery (W Chevy Chase) is located at 5550 Friendship Blvd, Chevy Chase, MD. Tel: 240.394.8385

Crumbs & Whiskers Set to Open Georgetown's First Cat Cafe

March 30, 2015

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Crumbs & Whiskers has gotten zoning approval for their headquarters at 3211 O Street in Georgetown, with plans to open this summer, according to their Facebook page.

“Crumbs & Whiskers brings together some amazing things. Specifically coffee, tea, desserts, and you guessed it ... cats! DC's cat cafe will serve as a foster home for the Washington Humane Society's shelter cats and as a really fun place to hang out for DC residents. The concept is pretty simple. Cats in cages are sad, so we get them out of there. Anyone without a cat is sad (or should be), so we hook them up.” 

Crumbs & Whiskers also plans to entertain people with local art, a selection of books & board games.

The Secret of Great Garbo at Embassy of Sweden

March 15, 2015

The Embassy of Sweden is hosting: TALK: Greta Garbo - The Secret on Thursday, March 19th at 7:00 pm.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm and registration is required.

”I thought I ’knew’ Greta Garbo.” This is how Swedish author and film maker Lena Einhorn begins the epilogue of her novel Blekinge Street 32. Einhorn spent many hours with this inaccessible woman who was once the world’s greatest movie star in the making of her television documentary. Einhorn thought she knew Garbo, until she read the thirty-three letters from Greta to fellow actress Mimi Pollak and a completely different Greta Garbo emerged.

The author will share the secrets she learned with the audience during this event.

Embassy of Sweden is located at 2900 K Street in Georgetown.
