Deacon's been strangely quiet this week, and we sincerely apologize for the down time between posts.
But never fear, it's good news! We're almost through with one (day) job and about to start another (more on that later) and picking up lots of new freelance work.
Starting next week, find us weekly on Washingtonian.com's Shop Around blog, where we'll be covering local style and events. Stay tuned, as we'll feed the updates to DeaconDoesDC and on Twitter so you don't have to go searching for your favorite style gossip.
We're also banging away on pieces about spas and denim for the February issue, as well as putting together Northern Virginia's best-ever bargain spa package for Northern Virginia mag's May issue.
The cold may have slowed our movements, but this week we were movin' and groovin' at Pastry Tastings at Ici Urban Bistro, where the amazing Beverly Bates showed off her skills with dishes like Caramel Pear Bread Pudding and Coconut Creme Brulee. Mmmm, they were delish. If you haven't already had a chance to sample, we suggest you scoot your butts there quick! Best of all, at lunchtime, you can sample mini bites of these desserts for just $3 each. Now that's something to Say Yum about!!
Last night, we were off to The Park to host the swank Style Savants party. Sad to say, we were too busy having fun to take photos, but some of our fellow hostesses captured the news, including Pamela of Pamela's Punch, and Kate Michael of K Street Kate. We loved the mashed potato bar, an inventive offering allowing guests to mix in items like bacon, cheddar and chives ... but it did take us awhile to figure out what everyone was eating!
Now, we're off to Misha's in Old Town to pick the brain of Kaarin (a.k.a Closet Caucus) a DC-based wardrobe editor. She promises to give us the insider scoop on what Washingtonian's should be wearing come spring and beyond!
