Plum Pickings

| August 29, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY Guests at Nectar Skin Bar’s opening enjoyed exclusive cosmetic treatments while sipping purple-hued, black currant vodka and champagne cocktails—a nod to the spa’s plum colored 18th century rowhouse. THE PLAYERS Owners Brian and Amy Thomas hosted a handful of DC media mavens, including Meet the Press producer Betsy Fischer, Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Self magazine DC editor Marc Adelman. BEST IN SHOW Talk about swag—each of the 80 attendees took home lotions and potions from lush lines rarely carried in town, including Darphin, Paul & Joe Beaute, Butter London and Comfort Zone.
