Great DC Find: James Bond Quantum of Solace parties

Hi Darlings:

Can I tell you I am on pins and needles waiting for the new Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" to hit theaters this Friday on November 14th.

It also seems like the rest of Washington, DC is also "shaken not stirred" in expectation as well with all the Bond themed parties that are planned. I remember being skeptical about Daniel Craig as 007. I did not think of him as debonnaire as Pierce Brosnan or Roger Moore or Sean Connery - my three most favorite Bonds. Could he wear a tux with the same level class or order a martini in the same as a matter of fact way and fight the bad guys without looking shaken? I was not sure about the more violent, modern portrayal of the character that I've grown to love. But after seeing Casino Royale and all the great action scenes in that movie I was convinced. I hopethere will be more jump from building to building action scenes!

Either way, it will be interesting to see the current installment in the Bond series as it takes up a few hours after the end of Casino Royale so I assume we might get to see an angry and grief stricken Bond at least in the beginning. I always think when movies do this that I should rent the previous movie so its fresh in my mind before I see the current one but never do since I can never find the time. How do you prepare for sequels that flow in plot right from the previous movie?

Here is information about a few of the parties going on:
