Sporting Style

| May 30, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY The unveiling of the athlete-abundant 2013 Men of Style Issue called for a posh party, complete with aforementioned athletes, hip DJ Heather Femia and interactive kiosks featuring the sleek new Verizon BlackBerry Z10. Powerhouse, a newly remodeled Georgetown gem, housed the soiree for a slew of stylish supporters. THE PEOPLE John Wall, the Washington Wizard’s dashing point guard and the issue’s cardigan-clad cover model, made an appearance, as did his fellow Man of Style Josh Morgan of the Redskins. Alongside these superb sportsmen, Mark Absher, social media strategist at Verizon Wireless; James Novak, VP channel accounts at BlackBerry; and Greg O’Dell, president and CEO of Events DC mingled with the masses. BEST IN SHOW The party also put the launch of the much-anticipated Verizon BlackBerry Z10 front and center. Guests were given sleek bracelets that allowed them to explore the features of the new smartphone and compete for cool prizes. One partygoer was selected from the live tweeting contest and walked away with a new Z10! Photography by Tony Brown
