LL’s Mayoral Party Guide

After a year of campaigning, the District's Democratic mayoral hopefuls will find out to which of them gets another seven months of campaigning against David Catania. First, though, it's time to party.

Your election watch options range from high class (Vince Gray) to casual (surprisingly, Jack Evans). But which one is right for you? Read on:

Vince Gray

Location: Hyatt Regency Washington, 400 New Jersey Ave NW.

Start time: 9 p.m.

Pick If: You want to be at the center of the action, but don't want to go to the Bowser party.
* * *
Muriel Bowser

Location: Imagine Southeast Public Charter School, 3100 Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave. SE.

Start Time: 8 p.m.

Pick If: You want an election party location that's as on-message as your candidate.

* * *

Tommy Wells

Location: Top of the Hill, 319 Pennsylvania Ave. SE.

Start Time: 8:30 p.m.

Pick If: You want to kick things off early. Another Wells watch party starts at 6 p.m. at the Pour House, located in the same building. 

* * *

Jack Evans

Location: Stoney's Bar and Grill, 1433 P St. NW.

Start Time: 8 p.m.

Andy Shallal

Location: Busboys and Poets, 5th and K Sts NW.

Start time: 8 p.m.

Pick If: You can't get enough of Shallal after Monday's GOTV rally at Ben's Chili Bowl, which promises "socializing and free hot dogs" after 8:20 p.m.

 * * *

Vincent Orange

Location: A mystery, for now. Orange hasn't responded to LL's request for information about the party.

Start time: Unknown.

Pick If: You like histrionics and love Pharrell's "Happy."

* * *

Reta Jo Lewis:

Location: Lewis campaign headquarters, 635 Florida Ave. NW.

Start time: 7:30 p.m.

Pick If: ?

  • Miss Lu Lu Hogg

    At the age of 70 or 71, Mayor Gray is still moble and can get down. Good for him because so many people his age or younger can not get around good.

    Let's just hope Gray Shadows doesn't "Drop It Low" to pick up the soap in his soon to be state-of-the-art digs!

    I heard they like light-skinned guys with "good hair" in the joint.

    Mo Money Moten, is that true? Seeing that you took up residency in the joint previously. Oh yeah, you are considered light-skinned also.

    This video is a prelude to his Nov. 2016 Welcome Back Vinnie Party! Mo Money Moten will film the video.

    Hint to Vinnie: Practice Tai Chi to stay limber so you can show us the "senior returning citizen" version of the "Hee Haw" dance.


    The "Natives" are restless!

    Watch out for Vinnie's book in 2016 "Uncle Earl Set me Up!"

    Book signing will be at the "Big Chair" in SouthFeast in Dec. 2016.
