Meet Brandon Byrd. He started a vintage mobile eatery paying homage to the Rock & Roll era, serving turtle pecan sundaes, rootbeer floats, doughnut sandwiches, and other amazing treats to District Citizens out of a restored 1952 step van. Named one of the best food trucks in DC, Goodies is now also a stand at National Harbor. We caught up with him about work and life in DC.
Meet David Drucker. He’s currently Senior Congressional Correspondent at the Washington Examiner. He tackles serious issues and is a major source for up to the minute information in this town. We caught up with him briefly to talk more about his work, how he got started and where he hangs out.
Chris Sarley works for Rep. Shimkus, but his second and likely much more grueling job for the last 10 years is running the 108 team U.S. House Softball League in his spare time. We caught up with him about what that’s like, what he’s learned, and tips on becoming a coach.
Meet Donté Stallworth. You may know him from his previous working life – an NFL wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, and the Washington Redskins. Now, he’s a National Security Fellow at the Huffington Post. We caught up with him about his transition to journalism.
Meet Kate Glassman Bennett. She’s a fourth-generation Washingtonian and highly accomplished about town (and out of town). To name just a few accomplishments, she was Washingtonian’s fashion editor, Washingtonian Mom’s editor-in-chief, the EIC of Capitol File Magazine, is an all-around style maven, and earned her stripes in the magazine world in Vegas. Now, she’s starting her own gossip column at Politico, the cleverly titled KGB File.
