Fans and friends of K Street Kate braved mid-August-in-DC mugginess and jammed into Dr. Ayman Hakki’s new cosmetics spa – Luxxery Express – to commemorate the online magazine’s 4th Anniversary. At the helm of it all? Kate Michael – arbiter of all things DC and one of the best hostesses in town! And those that came to get their drink on weren’t let down in the least!

The thirsty were treated to an open vodka bar with an endless list of mixers (many healthy options) and the East Coast debut of select Bordeaux wine, Brut and Rose champagnes by CPC Cellars. Some of those spotted in the crowd: Luxxery CEO Hiba Hakki, Real Housewife of DC Lynda Erkiletian with designer/boyfriend Ebong Eka, Moki Media’s Dannia Hakki, Makeda Saggau-Sackey, Angie Goff, Bianca Angelino Grimaldi, Juleanna Glover and Christopher Reiter, Angela Steever-Diba, Dr. Christine Warnke, on her way to Greece, and Ambassador of Yemen Abdulwahab Al-Hajjri.

After raising many glasses to Kate and her crew at Luxxery the masses migrated to Mighty Pint for the official after party.
