The latest from Capitol File's Editor-in-Chief, Amy Moeller.
To kick off inauguration weekend, the Capitol File team (from left: Laura Mullen, Suzy Jacobs, Meredith Merrill, Christina Cuevas, and Erin Gleason) and I joined Team Rubicon Global at Fiola Mare.
Well, 2017 wasted no time getting amped up, did it? Spring is nearly here, and with it, my chronic overuse of chronically overused clichés. “Spring has sprung.” “New beginnings.” “Spring into style.” I guess technically that last one is a pun, but it counts. Fortunately, most of these phrases get edited out by my diligent managing editor (thanks, Oussama!), and you, dear readers, are spared.
On the heels of the inauguration and on the eve of White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner weekend, there’s no easing into this year for Washingtonians. It really is a new season, both literally and metaphorically, and DC is an interesting place to be. In our office, we’re gearing up for back-to-back events, planning for the year ahead, and launching a series of new social media efforts (follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat, won’t you?). And outside of the office, there’s so much to explore as the weather begins to break and the sun lingers a little longer each day (hallelujah for all that Vitamin D!).
With this issue, we’re launching a fab new section called The Source, making the back of the magazine a destination for the best things to do, places to go, and people to see in the District. We put our network to work, coming up with intel and insider tips for restaurants, salons, and much more, so keep an eye out for recommendations from some city insiders you might just recognize. Stick with us in 2017, and we’ll keep you connected.
