There are a lot of ways Washington knows Bruce Allen. He's the son of Coach George Allen, the brother of former Virginia senator George Allen, and and in recent years has taken center stage himself as president of Washington's football team (like it or not, still known as the Redskins). Here's todays news: he'll be the guest at The Q&A Cafe on Tuesday, September 23 -- three weeks into the new season and after the team will have played Houston, Jacksonville and Philadelphia, and two days before a Thursday night face-off with the New York Giants.
So much to talk about - ya think? How about RGIII? Kirk Cousins? Jay Gruden? A new stadium? And a name change to go with the new stadium? Could all that be in the works? The NFL in general?
For reservations, please call The George Town Club at 202-333-9330. The fee is $35, all inclusive of lunch, soft beverages, tax and tip. Seating begins at noon, the interview starts at 12:30 and we wrap by 1:15. The show airs on Friday evenings at 8 o'clock on channel 16.
Allen joins a strong Q&A Cafe fall line-up: Christ Episcopal Church Rector Stuart Kenworthy on October 3, only a few days before his retirement; political and economic strategist Gregory Valliere on October 17, discussing what the mid-terms mean to the economy; and broadcast journalism legend Dan Rather, soon to be portrayed by Robert Redford in a new film. There are more still to be announced. Reserve a seat for all of them.
This October is The Q&A Cafe's 13th anniversay.
