The latest news from Capitol File's Editor, Amy Moeller.
Celebrating at Capitol File’s 10th-anniversary party with Aba Kwawu, Max Major, our publisher Suzy Jacobs, and Nicole Schade.
As I write this, I’m planning for spring while watching the last of the snow from Jonas melt outside. I cannot wait for the pages of this issue to come alive. Spring 2016 means not only a new season to celebrate—a long awaited one, at that—but also a chance to share the fruits of our labors. For two years, we have shouted from the proverbial rooftop just how vastly DC has changed. We’re edgy! We’re dynamic! New restaurants, hot fashion, renowned entertainment! #DCCool, we say! It was time we as a magazine matched pace with that exciting energy. So while we were hibernating, we reimagined the mission of Capitol File—and I’m so excited to share the new look. We’ve traded the traditional format for three core sections we think best represent the way we live: Scene, Style, and Space. And like any good makeover, we kept the heart of the book intact—smart, local, interesting stories, just punched up in a more beautiful, approachable, sprightly package.
Kicking off my favorite event of the year, the Men’s Issue party, with Suzy.
In the spirit of this issue’s fashion theme, we got the scoop on what designer shirts DC native Chris Meloni can’t live without; what jewelry trends Tiny Jewel Box’s head buyer says Washingtonians shouldn’t miss; and which decade is inspiring spring style in Georgetown. We learned what it’s like to dine at DC’s buzzing Dinner Lab; the story behind the murals at Shaw’s Espita Mezcaleria; and how Arena Stage’s latest star, Benjamin Scheuer, stays humble (hint: It involves his mom and Eddie Redmayne). Through these pages, we’re making reservations, planning our weekends, and booking spring getaways. Flip through, read along, and join us! We’ll see you out there.
