It’s all about REDDz!

June 30, 2013

It was a “Red” hot evening both inside and out of the new REDDz Trading in Georgetown, an extension of Wendy “Red” Ezrailson’s wildly popular upscale consignment store in Bethesda.  Ezrailson was previoiusly the founder of Commander Salamander and Up Against the Wall, two eclectic stores in the area for years.

“REDDz is a modern approach to recycled designer clothing and accessories, featuring gently used Chanel, Louis, Gucci as well as other popular brands,” the owner explained.

“This location became available and I said “This is it.”  “I love the store, I love the space and we made it happen.”

Dance Trance

June 26, 2013

Dance Trance DC celebrated the grand opening of its second location in the Balance Gym at the Fairmont Hotel with a “Keeping It Classy” cocktail party in the hotel’s courtyard Tuesday night.

Guests made up of dance class regulars and those still learning about the high-cardio exercise class traded stories about their favorite routines and songs, sipping on spirits instead of the usual water bottle in the middle of class.

Since Dance Trance DC’s opening last year in the Balance Gym location at Thomas Circle, owner Sarah Spears Sands along with instructors Lauren McCaghren and Maria Jose Horen have helped dozens of women burn thousands of calories through dance choreography. Several of the class’s now-seasoned veterans are training to become instructors themselves.

If hobnobbing is the art of social interaction with ‘higher-ups’ then Joanna Coles – new Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan Magazine – does it well.  That’s not to say she isn’t herself one of the most powerful women in the world, but when Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and former Secretary of State and Four Star General Colin Powell did a spontaneous drop in at a private dinner in her honor – that we guess, is hobnobbing at its best and exactly what took place at Cafe Milano.

It was sometime after the the Truffle Scented Taglioni Pasta with a Creamy Pecorino Cheese and Fresh Black Pepper Sauce “Cacio e pepe” Style and the Sauteed Mediterranean Sea Bass Fillet with Baby Zucchini and Baby Leeks in a Heirloom Tomato Emulsion that the ‘hobnobbing’ took place.
