O.K., it began on the dock at Washington Harbour, and there were palm trees on the top deck of the Boomerang Party Yacht, which cruised on the Potomac from north of Key Bridge to south past Memorial Bridge. But life was a beach, as friends and fans of Kate Michael celebrated six years of her D.C. lifestyle website July 22 and enjoyed a two-hour ride with complimentary cocktails on board the boat and personal cans of C.R.E.A.M. whipped vodka bottles with flavors, such as vanilla, chocolate, caramel and raspberry. Michael and Nichole Devolites really got into the spirit with a whipping cream match on the top deck — sticky but fun, both agreed. At the party, Michael announced a name change for her site:
“As the site and content mature, our brand should as well. Readers can expect the same voice, the same local fanaticism, and K Street Kate is still at the helm… but we’re going to be known as K Street Magazine when the new site is up and running in August.” After the ride, Michael and friends dined at Peacock Cafe.
