Washingtonian’s Best of Washington party: Celebrating Readers’ Favs

For the past 30 years, Washingtonian has invited their loyal readers to vote for their favorites in various categories, such as best people, places, and services in the area. The July Issue  features “The Best Of …”of which readers rated for their favorites of everything from popsicles, pizza parlors, pot stickers, and cocktails. Of course, the Washingtonian editors don’t allow us layfolk to decide what’s best (wink); they too weigh in  with their own picks of what and whom they feel is the best in Washington.

July 13, 2009 from 7 -10 p.m. at the National Building Museum located at 440 G Street, NW,  Verizon Wireless & Washingtonian offer their ‘Best of Washington Party’. They have invited the ‘winners’ to set up booths and serve up their best to partygoers. In 2008 more than 1,200 guests, celebrities, restaurateurs, and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society supporters filled the National Building Museum to sample, sip, and socialize.

The sold-out event featured more than 50 of the area’s best restaurants and several celebrated chefs, including Michel Richard of Citronelle and Central, Eric Ziebold of CityZen, Tony Conte of the Oval Room, and Scott Drewno of the Source by Wolfgang Puck. I’m very excited to attend – thanks to Jill Collins!

All funds from the silent auction and a portion of ticket proceeds went to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fight blood cancers. The Verizon Wireless Best of Washington party proved to be the highlight of the summer season. It’s a winner for sponsors, suppliers, guest, and beneficiaries.

Tickets were offered at two levels: Vice Presidential Ticket ($95) and Presidential Ticket ($125) . View photos from 2008 party:
