I met up with my model muse Rhiannon Day at Spot Lounge in Dupont Circle on Friday night to help Makeda Saggau-Sackey celebrate the second anniversary of her fashion blog The Glamazon Diaries. I’d not been to Spot yet but heard a lot about it since it opened last month so I was looking forward to seeing if it lived up to the hype. Not as large as I thought it would be, Spot did provide, however, a feast for the eyes, with its well thought out details and figurative “blue” decor. The over-sized female torso in the men’s room was an interesting touch. Nightclub denizens Courtney Caldwell and Jaclyn Gower held court at the bar surrounded by a hive of guys all vying for their attention. Paul Wharton was there and then suddenly he wasn’t and finally got a few minutes face time in with Kamari Wheeler. I now realize that I was talking with Stephanie Green, of Green and Glover, without knowing it, and Becky Lee was like a one-woman tornado, dancing her way through the crowded throng. DJ Seyhan Duru kept the pace upbeat with a masterly mix of current and older tunes that provided a drop-cloth for some dirty dancing. The pictures took themselves.
