Third Way held a huge “Party of the Decade” 10th anniversary bash last night at Union Market Dock 5, with White Ford Bronco as its band with a grilled cheese bar, bacon bar, and dumpling bar. SPOTTED: Stephanie Cutter (on her birthday), Jill Zuckman, “The West Wing’s” Melissa Fitzgerald, Sen. Heidi Heidtkamp, DE Gov. Jack Markell, a host of House Dems (Bera, Kind, Himes, Sinema, Aguilar, Polis, Bustos, Peters), Bill Schneider, Trisha Enright, Ryan McConaghy, and about 600 others.
We should mention that this is not just a one-off day of happiness for the think tank. Third Way is also known for having great snacks (and a decent stash of alcohol).
The think tank is certainly living up to one of its mottos: "We don't just sit around and think, in a tank or elsewhere."
Here is a previous Think Tank Watch piece on how libertarian think tanks party.
Of course, foreign policy and defense think tanks, such as the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), also know how to throw a rocking party.
