The day that everyone has been waiting for is fast approaching: January 20, 2009. That is the day that President-elect Barack Obama will be inaugurated as President of the United States of America. Ever since his being elected on November 4th of last year, people have been clamoring to get to Washington, DC to witness this historic event. Trips got scheduled, rooms got booked, and millions of people on top of the millions who live in the area plan to converge on the DC area to get in on a piece of the action. And there’ll be lots of it to be had with Inauguration Day following on the heels of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend.
Everybody and their grandmother is having an inaugural ball (although there are only 10 official balls) and using it as an excuse to charge $100 and up per ticket. But you know we don’t play that at SoulBounce. Unlike some people (I won’t name no names, Maxwell), we realize that we’re in a recession and that this is not the time to spend money all willy nilly. That’s not what President Barack Obama is about and neither are we. With that in mind, I’ve compiled this list of wallet-friendly, SoulBounce-approved events from January14th-20th for your consideration for those who want to Barack their bodies on a budget. This is nowhere near a comprehensive list of every single party that Diddy or Taraji P. Henson are “scheduled” to appear at, but instead it’s a listing of soulful events where you might find one or more of your friendly SoulBounce Editors since all this excitement is happening in our backyard and what not. If you see any of us out and about, we’ll have to have a drink. As long as you’re buying. (more)
