If you want more direct access to Ron's mind -- access that we, as members of the Atlantic Media Company now get on a regular basis -- well, you can have it.

Next Thursday morning, Ron, National Journal's Linda Douglass and the Hotline's Amy Walter will host a networking breakfast at the tony Columbus Club at Union Station.

The conversation is free and the breakfast is freer. Eat on us.

So if you're in Washington, love Ron Brownstein and want a free breakfast, RSVP here.
