Next up is a Q&A with last year’s Favorite Nightlife Insider, known to Twitter as @DCEventJunkie:

Name: Lisa Byrne

Location: Washington, D.C.

Twitter handle: @DCeventjunkie

In 200 words or less, please give us a short, witty bio about yourself or your institution: DCeventjunkie tweets and writes about all things D.C. - where to eat, drink, network, dance, nap (hopefully not on the bar) and mingle. We’re where you want to be, keeping you up-to-date on where to go next. From foodies to techies, serial networkers and fundraiser fanatics, we’ve got you covered. DCeventjunkie is a little bit of ‘everything events’ in Washington, D.C.

If you were a D.C. landmark, you’d be … The Washington Monument, located right on the Mall in the heart of some of D.C.’s best events!

If you suddenly woke up on the other side of the world, unable to return, what would you miss most about D.C.? The people. No matter where you go or live, it’s all about the people.

What’s the best part of Washington – the one that no one knows about? Didn’t someone already tweet it?!

Why should you win Top Tweep again? @DCeventjunkie shares tweets on D.C. events and happenings in and around Washington, D.C. The creator of the #DCevents hashtag, we’ve built a local events community on Twitter and support others in spreading the word on a variety of happenings, functions and affairs around town.
