An Inaugural Ball for the Rest of Us!

Along with the Bloggerational Ball, you now have an option to attend the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee today announced the first-ever Neighborhood Inaugural Ball on January 20 at the Washington Convention Center with free or affordable tickets available!

In Obama's words:

"This is an inauguration for all Americans. I wanted to make sure that we had an event that would be open to our new neighborhood here in Washington, D.C., and also the neighborhoods across the country. Michelle and I look forward to joining our fellow Americans across the country during this very special event."

Okay, so how do we get these tickets? I have the tux, and I suspect finding a date will not be too hard once I announce my "Escort Herb to the Inaugural Ball" contest (open to anyone and for that matter, anything).

For that I might actually leave my apartment. My current plan is to keep the shotgun by the door and have enough food and water to spend the day in comfort and safety, protected from the masses of tourists. Ick.

I think you are correct in your suspicions.

I'm really excited about this one and the Youth Ball, especially since it covers folks up to 35! I'll be old enough to enjoy it but not too old to get in. Sweet.
