Under the watchful eye of George Clooney (see above photo) Allie Hagan, the DC girl behind the Suri's Burn Book tumblr, greeted a packed house of fans at A Bar for her book, Suri's Burn Book: Well-Dressed Commentary From America's Little Sweetheart. The creative cocktail hour featured Hollywood-themed drinks inspired by Hollywood kids--like the fattening "Heavy on the Milk" cocktail (inspired by Jessica Simpson's baby, Maxwell) or a Pork Slap can of beer in honor of Violet Afflek, whom Allie's Suri thinks is trashy.
Allie sold out of books at the event, and entertained the crowd with the celebrity baby jokes that were too naughty to print. "You're allowed to call a baby fat, but not a three year old," she joked.
There were enough Georgetown Cupcakes and cryo-cocktails by A Bar mixologist Brennan Adams to go around. People have been flocking to A Bar to try his drinks since it opened a few months ago, and he recently snagged [another] bartending award from GQ.
We spotted: Kate Bennett, Cori Sue Morris, Danielle Bolger, Emil Caillaux, Sarah Corsaro, Ally Mann, Barbara Martin, Nick Massella, Ashley Mason-Greene, Katie Nannes, Sophie Penichet, Marisa Petrozza, Nikki Rappaport, Tace Joelle Samet, Jayne Sandman, Marissa Schneider, Pamela Sorensen, Andrea Szempruch, Dominique Vu, and Michael Woestehoff.
