Marissa Mitrovich is a stylist to the stars. Well, she once had an opinion on Cara Delevinge’s choice of footwear during her visit to the White House which, I think, makes her qualified if she ever decides to be. Marissa is the founder of Politiquette – DC’s one stop shop for fashion all year …

Working in the media really sucks. CareerCast recently ranked the worst jobs for 2016 and the industry made the list more than once – and we gotta tell ya’, they might be on to something. Early hours, late nights and days so long you can barely remember your own birthday or that it’s Christmas day …

Famous congratulations are in order for our friend, Lauren French. Lauren has joined McBee Strategic Consulting, a leading communications and lobbying firm, this week. As a senior manager, Lauren will launch the the Press Office, a new offering for clients to leverage the services of a policy-savvy public relations and communications firm. Previously, Lauren …

Unless you live comfortably under a rock or you don’t have, at minimum, access to your neighbor’s wifi password, you probably saw the news that Paul Ryan will not be more than a figment of your inaugural hopes and dreams. In other words, he will not be – under any circumstance – …

Ryan Grim is the Washington bureau chief for the Huffington Post and a regular contributor on MSNBC. Whether you agree with him or not (shame on you) his opinions and commentary are fancied by the savviest in Washington. When he’s not keeping up with politics, he’s just trying to keep up …

Pets are way better than humans. It’s a fact. For pet owners, National Pet Day is literally every day of the year, but it’s only appropriate that we give it its own official holiday and #hashtag. National Pet Day is just another way to say “I love you” to that special one …

If you didn’t make it outside yesterday because the sunlight was too much for your hangover, you missed some pretty nice weather. Luckily for us here in DC, it’s just getting started and the Spring like temperatures can only mean one thing: it’s baseball time. The Nats had a solid …

If you like baseball, we have a treat for you. If you don’t like baseball, you will soon. FamousDC is heading to the ballgame this Sunday April 10th where the Washington Nationals will be taking on the Florida Marlins. Our friend and photographer extraordinaire, Jeremy Art, has selflessly volunteered to witness …

It’s time for the guy who gives birthday shoutouts every morning to get one himself. Daniel Lippman turns 26 today (h/t Facebook) so holler at him if you see him at work, on the streets of DC, or even on a tennis court. And if you happen to spot him on …

The college basketball binge is finally over which means your hangover is probably starting to set in. Luckily for the winners of our NCAA March Madness bracket challenge, the party is just getting started. We teamed up with Cloture Club to put together a bracket pool for a chance to win awesome …

If you found yourself fighting off the always unwanted combination of hunger and anger in the last 24 hours, it was probably our fault. Yesterday, Jeremy Kirkpatrick of the National Restaurant Association took over the FamousDC Instagram account and graced it with the most glorious #foodpics one could only salivate …

This past Sunday was the 44th annual Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run where participants faced more competition than just out running each other – high winds challenged runners who walked, ran and sprinted to the finish line. Congratulations to all the runners who despite being gone with the wind, still made it to the …

You’ve seen it all over the news today: “Trump Holds Surprise Meeting with RNC in D.C.” We know the meeting lasted about an hour and a lot of people are wondering what the meeting was about. Well we’re not sure why Trump’s campaign decided to send us a release that’s embargoed until …

  Poor Marco. He’s not even in the 2016 race anymore and he still can’t catch a break. And that ducking sucks. Yesterday the former presidential candidate misspelled the name of his own country in a letter sent to the Alaska GOP asking them not to release his delegates just …

Spring has sprung and summer is literally on it’s way. The weather is only getting warmer which begs the question, how are we going to keep our drinks cold? Well we have the answer for you and you’ll be relieved to know we’ve done all the hard work – FamousDC has …
