Only in Washington would people be excited about a party and date auction where the big prizes of the silent auction include -- wait for it, boys -- "personal meetings" with former ambassador to Iraq L. Paul Bremer, former defense secretary Harold Brown and former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski. Of such lunch dates are the dreams of young foreign policy stars made. The Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, to be exact. The group's second-annual Affairs of State gala at the City Tavern Club includes an hour-long open bar, a live performance by local cover band Sick Feed, a date auction and that silent auction. It should be a wonky good time. Tickets are $40 in advance from the YPFP Web site, wher eyou can also read profiles of the men and ladies up for bids, and $50 at the door.
