Last night was the 5th Annual Bubbles and Bluegrass, this year at the Carlyle House. Guests sipped on sparkling wine and noshed on southern bites from Virginia BBQ, Pork Barrel BBQ, Hard Times Cafe, and a heap of black beans cooked up by Michael Brooks. There was a live auction and a raffle, but Mystique's champagne lottery (one glass wins a diamond!) was the biggest hit. Proceeds benefit Give Back Alexandria.

There was a best dressed contest, too--judged by GofG's own style columnist Becca Thorsen (and the evening's chairwoman). Kelly Anne Smolinski won flowers as the best dressed gal, while "the man in the tuxedo shirt" was actually claimed by three men in such an outfit, which amused the crowd. We'll call it a three-way-black-tie.

We spotted: Grant Allen, Casey Anderson, Holly & Matthew Beville, Tyler Boyd, Allison Priebe Brooks & Michael Brooks, Steve Cheveney, Geoff Daniels, Ainsley Dickens, Allison & Garrett Erdle, George Foulard, Kendall Gartlan, Lisa Gillenwater, Maggie Graham, Toni Henderson, Abigail Hopkins, Jonathan Jarvis, Alison Jones, Liv Jorgenson, Joanna Kauffman, Remy Kauffmann, Carrie & Josh Keene, James Kennedy, Katherine Kennedy, Max Kirschenbaum, Larry Kramer, David Lyle, Britt McHenry, Kate Michael, Courteney Monroe, Howard T.
