This show is for the "moonlighters" among us: Washingtonians who split their time between full-time jobs and part-time passions. We'll meet a veteran Capitol Hill aide who moonlights behind the hostess stand at her new Georgetown restaurant.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks]
