O'Donnell (JFOD) is currently a 'Political Correspondent' on the comedy news television show 'Redacted Tonight w/ Lee Camp' on RT America. According to the Comedy Central Insider, "John F. O'Donnell is one of the more explosive comics in New York City. On stage, he's like a tightly capped liter of soda filled with lit fireworks." John has been featured in The New York Times, The LA Times and The Huffington Post, as well as being one of Comedy Central's Fresh Faces of Comedy. Most recently, JFOD has been given a Congressional Press Credential and will be covering the Presidential Debates on location for 'Redacted Tonight,' which, if you know him, seems like a terrible breach of security. This very special stand up event will be directed by the brilliant composer/producer/filmmaker and founding member of Fugazi, Brendan Canty.

>>>>>>>>>>>> Ok, back to the article! >>>>>>>>>>>>


This past weekend, she hosted a 3 day long pop-up to offer us and the rest of DC’s budding hosts and hostesses a sneak peek at what to expect in there permanently and considering that the female portion of the BYT editorial team found it hard to leave the premises, let alone stop constantly touching the goods on the shelves, we think it is safe to say you’re all in for a treat and a new favorite retail stop.


Just like McClements herself, the store is a fine mix between warm Southern Americana (all the farmhouse tables in store were handcrafted by her Father!) and urban but bohemian flair: a place that makes looking polished seem easy.

Some of the highlights we wanted to drop into our purses ASAP included a great ceramic selection from Cloud Terre, great books on quality drinking, small batch goodness from local favorites like Gordy’s Pickles, Big Spoon Roasters, paper place setting pads, antler stirrers and oh-so-much more.


Proving that she is the kind of person the right kind of people want to party with too, McClements also featured punches by St. Germain and Pernod Absinthe for her shoppers and Tiffany MacIsaac showed up with a preview of the doughnut portion of NRG’s upcoming chicken-and-doughnuts restaurant GBD. Did we mention we were pretty much ready to move in?

    When I such as the rapid modal idea ( and appearance ) as well , In my opinion it just a little considerably over and above the typical post creation circulation . That’s possibly not a bad thing but I don’t think a should be added between clicking to contribute a new submit and when the edit post display screen in fact appears .
