Men’s Mag Power

Let’s start with the question that always seems to come up with the annual GQ event – “Who from the list came?” So, without further ado:  a list of  GQ’s power attendees (and their corresponding top-50 rank):

(#5); (#12); Sen. (#22); (#25); (#26); George Stephanopoulos (#31); (#32); (#35); Paul Rieckhoff (#37); (#39); (#41); (#42); (#43); (#44); (#45); (#47); (#49);

Noticeable non-shows? (#1), (#9) and Alexander Ovechkin (#48). We assume they weren’t hanging out in the same place.

Aside from the esteemed listees, the crowded included a potent mix of Washington players, From ABC to CNN and every blog in between, you’d be hard pressed to throw a quote and not hit a player at the party.

When WL asked George Stephanopoous why he came, he seemed surprised at the question and simply answered “Well, it was the respectful thing to do.” George … nice guy!

The sweetest part of the night, besides the stellar pass hor d’oeuvres and open bar, with vodka provided by Ultimate Vodka, was the awesome collection of chocolates provided in the swag bag courtesy of Godiva. They say that power is sweet, and in this case it was. To GQ editor in chief – come back and visit us in DC anytime.
