No drive bys.......

No drive-bys, no bunny dips, no texting.  If you went to Allison Priebe Brooks' dinner at The City Tavern Club, your type A personality was parked at the door. 

"The "gorgeous" quotient was quite high," said Jill Collins pictured above.

"Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (also pictured above), I sat next to her.  She told a totally unprintable joke about marriage -- who knew she could be so bawdy?"  

Well, actually, if you're a regular at The Funniest Celebrity in Washington it comes as no surprise.  In 2006 she won the title and was famous for her line on Katherine Harris who was the "decider" in the presidential recount in the chad, hanging chad, swinging chad state of Florida.  Harris, if you recall, certified George W. Bush’s 2000 vote in Florida, a decision that sent him to The White House.

In her stage routine, she took aim at her curvaceous Republican colleague who had lost her Senate bid:  “She plans to wear a tight T-shirt, ride a horse, and hope for cold weather,” said Sanchez.

Each guest received her signature animal print boxes, Queen Bee pair of dangling earrings  as a red rose on each plate.  


"It was so wonderful to have so many of my dear friends come together at the gorgeous City Tavern Club this week for dinner," said Brooks.   "I am delighted so many were able to make it and to you I wanted to say, "thank you." For those of you who were not able to attend please know you will dearly missed and we will do something again in the future." 

Done - count us in.
