One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

One Is the Magic Number: One Lounge Celebrates One Year Anniversary

It's hard to believe that Dupont Circle's very own, One Lounge has only been open for just one year. In this short time, the restaurant and lounge has managed to become a hot spot destination for dining and special events alike, welcoming in some of DC's most high-profile personalities.

On Tuesday night, Washington Capitals' stars Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Semyon Varlamov joined One Lounge co-owners Niko Papademtriou, Seth McClelland, Filipp Zeldin and Daniel Kramer to make a toast to the restaurant's one-year anniversary. Guests were privy to passed hors d'oeuvres and a four hour open bar sponsored by Perrier-Jouet, Red Bull and Svedka featuring One Lounge's new winter cocktails.

Rally to Restore Sanity

    People are quibbling over how many people showed up at the rally to restore sanity on the mall Saturday. I have no idea what the real number is (200,000 or ten million), but I was at the inauguration and took the same metro stop into the city and I've never seen anything like it.     It took about an hour to get on the train and then we were packed like sardines.  At each stop the people on the train would shove closer to each other to try to get more people on. The guy next to me said sharing butt heat from the guy/girl behind him that he couldn't see was a special moment in time, it would be over soon, and he didn't want to know who it was.
