Sorry, You're Not on the List

One in an occasional series of dispatches from parties you should have crashed.

Event: Fox News's retirement party for Brit Hume Thursday night.

Site: Cafe Milano, Georgetown.

Draw: A guest roster so A-listy they rolled out a red carpet, Hollywood style -- Dick Cheney and daughter Liz, Don Rumsfeld, Tom Ridge, Fred Thompson, Brian Williams, Joe Lieberman, George Will, Greta Van Susteren, Bill O'Reilly, Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

Spread: Oysters Rockefeller, penne, ravioli in rosé cream sauce, giant cake shaped like the Capitol dome.

Bar: Open!

Insider moment: Watching heart attack veteran Cheney gnaw on a rare lamb chop during the speechifying. ("He always goes for the meat when Lynne's not around," a former aide whispered to our colleague Manuel Roig-Franzia.)

Quip of the night: Hume, thanking his colleagues and guests: "I haven't been this honored since the rumor was going around that I was having an affair with Megyn Kelly."
