DJ Dan at Ask Me About DC, 2/15

This years Ask Me About DC event was a huge hit! I had a great time DJ'ing for all of the vendors there, as well as the Congressional staff, and even caught a few people dancing to the Cha Cha Slide at their booths.

I saw a ton of vendors I already knew. like Nicole Restivo at Taberna Del Alabardero, Rachel Krieger at Smith & Wollensky, both of which provided some amazing samples from their restaurant. Special thanks to Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and the DC Chamber of Commerce to make Ask Me About DC more spectacular each year. Also, a major thanks to Destination DC and Morgan Maravich for putting together an awesome vendor list. Can't wait for next year, and to see pics from this event (thanks to Reflections Photography):
