The first Cruisin’ ever happened last Thursday. Odyssey, set sail on the newly defrosted Potomac with everyone from BDL:DC’s finaliststs (incl. Betsy Lowther, Eric Brewer, Holly Thomas, US Royalty, Valli, Carole Greenwood), assorted other DC recognizables (Matthew Hemerlein, Michael Andrew Harris of Laughing Man, Anna Furhmann of Proper Topper, Fashion BS podcast crew, Maria of Righteous Restyle, Ryan of Pink Sock…) and a bunch of people wearing fishermen’s nets, fake parrots and eyepatches. It was pretty awesome.

But, enough of the namedrops.

Beautiful Swimmers DJed in one room making it the coolest prom you never attended, and we had the Best Dresseds, Chris Burns DC Dot Com, and Cale play their ipods in the loungier suite, people danced, juggled corn dogs, ate snow cones provided by the long-suffering, costume-wearing BYT intern staff and we hope everyone is looking forward to next time, which will probably happen during the Cherry Blossom festival. We’ll keep you posted.
