BIPARTISAN BASH: International trade consultant Roy Pfautch lives mostly in Tokyo now, so he isn’t entertaining here as he did in the Reagan and Geoge H.W. Bush years when his legendary Christmas party featured a place-carded dinner for 600 guests and a mystery VIP Santa Claus from the White House or Cabinet, revealed just before dessert. He occasionally reclaims his “super host” title whenever a new Japanese ambassador comes to town, which was the case at a spectacular fête honoring Shinsuke Sugiyama and his wife Yoko at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Nineteen senators and 18 representatives from both sides of the aisle, Cabinet secretaries and Supreme Court justices were spotted amid the towering floral arrangements before a special performance by Metropolitan Opera tenor Russell Thomas. “It was a happiness,” Pfautch said, “that so many from a wide range of persuasions joined together to welcome my friends of over 20 years back to Washington.”
