Déjà vu Again: The Cafritzes’ September soirée to welcome the social set back from summer break is now an “official Washington tradition.” Where better to catch up with friends you haven’t seen since the Opera Ball — unless, of course, you saw them all on Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket? SINGING IN THE RAIN: Sturdy tents and covered allées to shelter guests from gusty rain that mercifully passed earlier that day; lively dance music from a swing band; opera and Broadway faves sung by Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists; and some lively political chat in a few quieter corners. SPOTTED: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Susan Eisenhower, and envoys from Japan, Colombia, Britain, France, Denmark, Hungary, Morocco, Finland, Malta and Peru.
