Rain or Shine, Georgetown Gathers at Martin's
A motto for Georgetowners, Disherati, and the George Washington Tennis Center alike -- rain or shine, flood, fire, snow. There is no place like Martin's. Monday evening (and yes it was raining), Dish Media LLC and The Georgtown Dish congregated at their favorite watering hole to celebrate reporter extraordinaire, Georgetown University's Molly Redden and her summer home at the Dish.
Molly's guests included (from left to right below) Julianna Brint, Will Somner, recent GU graduate and Chris Heller -- emerging forces in journalism.
Representing the GW Tennis Center (left to right below) were program director, Mustafa Ulukan, Chace Warmington, Ecofusion principal, and Greg Munoz, head coach of men's tennis. Monday was the first day of the center's 12 week summer camp for 3-17 year olds. Conversation turned from gifted six year olds to constructing an eco-friendly indoor facility for students, kids and families at their Mount Vernon campus facility.
Chace pointed out, " With the growth of tennis, people want to go where we can play tennis, and eat afterwards. We want to stay local." The Dish couldn't agree more.
Coldwell Banker's Mary Lowry Smith (above right) dished with CAG president Jennifer Altemus (left) and Dish publisher Beth Solomon, while managing editor Bonnie Cain (below center) and Megan Harrington (left), promotions manager discussed a recent Georgetown photography show with Julianna Brint (right).

"Cast no aspersions on my talents," teased Gordon, who artfully downplayed her tennis skills while cannily sizing up prospective competitors. On one thing we all agreed, Martin's after the match!
