Christine Moritz was mentioned in the Oct. 27, 2005 edition of "Nightlife Agenda: This Week in Nightlife," a feature in which Washingtonpost.com's Fritz Hahn, Rhome Anderson, and David Malitz share their entertainment recommendations for the week.

The excerpt:

Thursday, October 27

Last week, Rhome and Fritz went on a brief "Let's go check out some new stuff" trip around Washington, and wound up at Christine Moritz's new Thursday night residency at Alero, the Mexican restaurant and lounge on U Street. Yeah, it's in the Ellington, which neither of us has much love for, but Christine -- who's had residencies at Eighteenth Street Lounge and IndeBleu -- is worth the trip, spinning a downtempo mix that draws in Alice Russell, the Gotan Project and local favorites Fort Knox Five. The vibe in the lounge is warm and cozy, thanks to dim lights, and there are plenty of carefully grouped couches and loveseats your group can take over. (Actually, we think this is one of the few spots on U where you could roll up with six or seven folks and have space for everyone.) All you need to do is grab a margarita or beer (Negro Modello, Pacifica, etc.) and chill. There's no cover, and the music runs from 8:30 to midnight.
