District Dish hosts Kate Michael, Sonya Gavankar, and Ebong Eka

The District Dish, the hip, internet and cable TV talk show that leaves public access in the ashes, celebrated  it’s 1-Year Anniversary last night at Public Bar in Dupont Circle with it’s first ever live taping. Each installment of The Dish is taped at a different restaurant or bar around town. At the helm of it all is Kate Michael – writer, model, and Miss DC (2006) – she’s the driving force behind the popular website KStreetKate, and the go-to gal for insider info on all things stylish in DC. Along with co-hosts Sonya Gavankar, a former Miss DC herself, and men’s fashion designer Ebong Eka, their personalities combine to create a unique, tag team-style, brand of lifestyle coverage, a natural extension of Michael’s blog.

On air guests Sophie Pyle of “Blond Charity Mafia,” Matt Paxton from A & E’s “Hoarders,” and The Dreamscapes Project frontman Keith Center, each taped their own 8-minute segment which will run sometime in the near future. (I was told that ratings spike when a musical personality is interviewed.)

Guests were treated to complimentary hor d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and also had an opportunity to mingle with fans and past show guests. Look for new episodes of The Dish every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!!

    I think you GET the show better than anyone has ever described it – we should hire you as our marketing agent!! 🙂
    THANKS for coming – and taking these awesome pics. You really capture the spirit of events, and we were thrilled to have you come to ours.

      Thanks Kate! Just so you know I admire people that actually “do” something in this town…not just talk about it! You’re carving your own path and it’s a pleasure to see it unfold!
