Where Everyone Knows Your Name
So I'm sitting at my favorite local watering hole (and predecessor to my retirement project Zoe and Joes) The Crystal City Sports Pub when who should I see...none other than Terry McAuliffe, former Clinton Fundraiser and DNC Chairman; and current Gubernatorial candidate.
It all happened so fast, I didn't get the opportunity to work my Jen Richer charm and say hello again (we've met two other times) but I was able to snag a photo from a guy who snapped it on his iphone.
Celebrities eh, but politicos heck this was a full blown TMZ moment for me. Running to tell the owners who I just saw eating in their bar, I was expecting at least one 'wow' or at least a 'now way."
Instead I received four blank stares and one bold "who?". So much for everyone knowing your name - even if you are running for governor.
