PEU Correspondents Weekend

Who says playfulness, pleasantry, politics, and PEU's (private equity underwriters) don't mix?  The tomfoolery continues this weekend.


18th Annual White House Correspondents' Garden Brunch.  This brunch -- a.k.a. "Tammy's Brunch" -- is an annual tradition that used to take place at the residence of Veteran TV Producer Tammy Haddad and her husband, World Bank Attorney Ted Greenberg. This year, it's switching to the former residence of (former Queen of WaPo) Katharine Graham, which is now owned by (Media PEU) Mark Ein. Honorary event co-chairs are Wendi Murdoch (filmmaker and maternal health advocate) and Epilepsy Activist Susan Axelrod (the duo will be on hand to bring awareness for The White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood and CURE, an epilepsy research organization). Kick off is 11 a.m.

Location: The Beall-Washington House - 2920 R St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20007 [map]

The guest list includes Twitter founder Evan Williams, Google's Eric Schmidt, Olympian Shaun White, The Carlyle Group founder David Rubenstein, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, "Dancing With The Stars" Co-Host Brooke Burke, White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley and "Modern Family" Stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.

There will be a press line and red carpet arrivals. In addition to the media frenzy, guests will enjoy scrumptious treats from The Georgetown Cupcake sisters (stars of TLC's "DC Cupcakes").
If we can't have profundity, PEU-ffoonery will have to do.
