Miss A Columnist

Crishana Loritsch is a licensed property manager by day and a budding fashionista 24/7. A fourth generation native Washingtonian, she loves all things DC and credits her upbringing with making her into what she feels is a classic 21st century Renaissance woman.

Her love of the arts, music, fashion and all things girly began at an early age. Family legend has it that she only agreed to walk at the age of 22 months after her uncle promised to buy her a new dress. She walked the very next day and will walk a mile gladly to find the latest beauty and fashion must haves at a fantastic price. Her fondest memories growing up involve shopping with her Mom at Woodward and Lothrop (Woodies to us DC natives) and visiting every museum and art gallery that her legs and her Metro card could carry her. A few of her favorite DC destinations are The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, The National Zoo, and The Phillips Collection. Living in the DC area and being in the property management field can be stressful, so Crishana is always on the lookout to take advantage of every opportunity to invest in her sanity, whether it's taking in a concert, seeing a ballet, or getting a massage and facial.

Crishana also makes sure to give back to her industry and local community. She co-chairs the Outreach Committee of the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of Community Association Institute (WMCCAI) and also serves on its Editorial Committee as one of its featured writers of their publication, Quorum magazine. She was honored as the WMCCAI 2011 Volunteer of the Year as well as being named one of its 2011 Rising Stars. Additionally, she participates in 5K/10K races all over the Washington DC metro area which benefit such charitable organizations at Ringing In Hope, Habitat for Humanity Loudoun County, Ashburn Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, and The American Red Cross.

Best Places To Watch The Super Bowl: Washington, D.C.

Super Bowl XLVII

Whether you are a true football fanatic with a head full of statistics to rival that of John Madden or you choose your favorite team based upon the colors of the uniform, chances are you will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3.  Who can pass up a day when it is mandatory to hang out in an oversized shirt with someone else’s name emblazoned on the back, comfortable stretchy pants, and where it’s perfectly acceptable to feast on copious amounts of game day fare?  Wings, anyone?

Below is a list of hot spots around the city to take in the spills and thrills of the greatest gridiron event of the year where local Baltimore Ravens will face off against the San Francisco 49ers.  If you are depressed that your team didn’t make it to the final dance (I personally bleed Burgundy and Gold), take heart.  If nothing else, you can adopt a team for the night or stay tuned for the outrageous commercials that everyone will be talking about around the water cooler at the office on Monday.

As for me, I am most looking forward to the half time show where I know Beyoncé will bring the house down without having to suffer a “wardrobe malfunction.”  Her alter ego isn’t Sasha Fierce for nothing.
