More on Washington--Pat Devine, who is leaving the Department of Interior (as did her boss, Bill Clark), for greener pastures (the White House perhaps?) celebrated her birthday in grand style. Alexander Braune, who runs Washington's Vista Hotel, invited a bunch of Pat's pals to a surprise birthday party. In that bunch were Elaine Crispin, the First Lady's personal assistant; Jane Erkenbeck, who is assistant to James Rosebush, the First Lady's chief of staff; Barbara Hayward, who is in the White House personnel department; Kathy Osborn, the President's secretary; AT&T's Lina Ellis; Lindy St. Cyr, director of public affairs for Citizens for America; Patricia Ellis, a software executive, and Donna Shaffer of Pride Airlines. It started with drinks in the Presidential Suite and moved down to the American Harvest Room for dinner. And Pat was properly surprised by it all.
Terry Herst opens her new counseling service, Survive Divorce, in Westwood next week.
