Event Recap: City Paper’s Best of DC Fete

City Paper’s Annual Best of DC Fete was held again this year at the Carnegie Library to honor the Best of DC, as voted on by City Paper readers and chosen by writers and editors. A portion of the proceeds from the party benefited Brainfood, a nonprofit youth development organization in Washington, D.C.  This is definitely one of my favorite events because I love food (and delicious cocktails)!! On arrival, I was greeted by a moving gold statue posing outside welcoming us in.

Once inside, the live music was playing and the cocktails were shaking! It was quite a scene and there were plenty of people there enjoying the VIP Cocktail hour.

My favorite cocktail was the Southern Orange Sour from Bar Dupont… it was so tasty  I had 2!! The attention to detail is what made it so great!!

This party is called the Best of DC for a reason!! The cocktails were delicious as shown above but the food is to die for!! I will let the pictures (aka food porn) continue to speak for themselves today!!

Gotta have dessert!!! Those were just some of the highlights from a great and food packed night!  Before giving away the Turkish Airline tickets (which despite my recent luck I did not win sadly), we got to enjoy some entertainment!!

About Morgan of DCFunemployment

Welcome to DCFunemployment. My name is Morgan and I am a native Washingtonian. In this post Paris Hilton era, socialite has became a bit of a dirty word. However by definition, a socialite is a person who is well known in fashionable society and is fond of social activities and entertainment. Like it or not, that's me so these are the diaries of a reluctant socialite. Follow me here or on social media to see some of the best that DC has to offer.
