City Paper is not for tourists
The mayor and at least a half-dozen councilmembers in in Las Vegas today for the International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual retail real estate convention. So where the party at?
In the Wynn Las Vegas’ Alsace Room:
Law firm Arent Fox (new employer of Tony Williams, as it happens) is hosting the signature event for local politicos at this year’s Vegas confab.
Question is, how many “other District of Columbia officials” will show at an event headlined by Adrian Fenty? With council resentment inflamed by tickets, travel, and what have you—-and the chance for a repeat of last year’s Vegas conflict, when Fenty’s people scheduled meetings separate from councilmembers—-things could get, um, interesting. LL had heard late last week that Yvette Alexander had been the only councilmember to RSVP. For LL’s sake, he hopes everyone shows up: Nothing like clashing personalities, booze, and a small room far away from home to create LL-caliber drama.
He’ll be taking party reports.
