DC Magazine celebrated five gents making major moves in the District.
THE PARTY DC’s finest raised their glasses to the five men honored as this years “Men on the Move” on Thursday, April 4. The soiree, held at the ever-chic Darcy Hotel, celebrated the men 007-style. James Bond was felt everywhere from the DJ and jazz band to the cigar, bourbon bar and grooming stations, and, of course, the decorations. Guests toasted to the guests of honor with the signature cocktails of the night - a Vesper Martini and Stirred Not Shaken. The menu for the night was almost as special as the honorees. The lineup included a Bento Box Station, Herb Crusted Whole Side Chilean Sea Bass, Bone-In Rosemary Ribeye Carving Crostini Station, and a Meze Station.
THE PEOPLE DC Magazine Editor-In-Chief toasted to the men of the evening - Luke Frazier, founder and director American Pops Orchestra, David Bernand, GM of the Four Seasons, and Karan Singh, CEO of Punjab Grill. Unfortunately, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of the Redskins and Mark Bamuthi Joseph from the Kennedy Center were honored in spirit as they could not be there. Other notable guests on the move include Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications of the First Lady Stephanie Grisham, Director of the Policy of the Office of the First Lady Art Harding, and Nancy Chen of WJLA. BEST IN SHOW The Aston Martin from Exclusive Auto Group set the stage for an evening guests knew they were not going to forget. The flowers from Melissa’s Creations Florals lit up the room while the Jazz Trio from American Pops Orchestra and the Dapper DJ kept the guests dancing all night long. Cigars were rolled by Castaneda and Bourbon was poured by Macallen. Men even enjoyed grooming and styling by His Grooming. Of course, the night will be remembered through photos taken at the photo booth from Book Extraordinary. - Carly Roesen
