Kicking off WHCD Weekend with The National Journal/Funny or Die First Amendment Party

What better time to skip town and head to DC then during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend? Last night I kicked off the festivities at The National Journal/Funny or Die First Amendment Party!

Rosario Dawson gave a speech, Charlese Theron held down the VIP section, while Rishanda Jones and Jon Favreau casually walked the room.

The event was such fancier set-up then last year. Hosted in a former Borders bookstore, it was quite swanky and not without a sense of humor — Amy and I fully enjoyed the photobooth and ridiculous array of props.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner happens tonight hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Washington Hilton! I’ll be at the CBS/Atlantic pre-reception tweeting from the event. You can follow me @prettyconnected.

The First Amendment Party

Kicking off my weekend in DC, Amy and I hit “The First Amendment” party with one goal of Amy finally exercising her freedom of speech on Bradley Cooper.

Hosted by The Atlantic and NationalJournal, the event, which included a live performance by Chris Rob was held at the Long View Gallery. Google had a lounge in the back of gallery which was where all the celebrity guests tented out.

Of all the crazy things that could have happened, some man crept behind the plants in the lounge and lunged at Sean Penn. Fortunately he was caught or more so grabbed mid-air by an incredibly large bouncer. I happened to be walking by right at that moment and literally had to duck out of this mans way. It was insane!
