Allbritton Brunch: The Invitation

Read it and weep.

Here’s the invitation that only 250 people will receive for this weekend’s exclusive brunch at Politico Publisher Robert Allbritton’s home. We hear Politico will be covering their own event again this year, so chances are high to skyrocketing that it won’t read like US Magazine. Some Politico reporters have told us they don’t mind not being invited to the brunch. We’re also hearing that a number of celebs who are attending the dinner will attend the brunch too — such as Kate Hudson, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Ashley Judd, Joan Rivers, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Tory Burch.

Who are some of the big-name brunch guests? Find out…
