Barry at Joynt’s Q&A Cafe


After serenading the late crowd at Tony & Joe’s 25th birthday on Sept. 13, Marion Barry, former mayor and now Ward 8 councilmember, returned to Georgetown Sept. 27 and met with Carol Joynt at her ongoing Q&A Cafe at the Ritz Carlton on South Street. Interviewer Joynt brought up many of Barry’s well-known foibles, citing “The bitch set me up.” D.C.’s “Mayor for Life” took it all in and responded: “I’m probably the most successful politician in Washington, D.C.” Barry will be writing an autobiography, he said. The Q&A Cafe interview segment with Marion Barry will air Oct. 5, 8 p.m., on Channel 16 (DCN).
