Parties Galore Surround Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration

barrackFrom champagne flutes to beer on tap, Las Vegas will most likely be celebrating the January 20 inauguration of Barack Obama with parties and after parties galore- and in a way no other city can.  

 

President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, will also have plenty of comfortable dancing shoes on hand and bottles of Excedrin on January 20, as they plan to attend 10 official inaugural balls.   Despite all the people involved in planning the inauguration festivities, everything has been hush-hush as to what they will wear or even if they daughters Sasha and Malia will attend. 

 

Six of the official balls will be the Washington Convention Center, with others planned for Union Station, the Washington Hilton, the National Building Museum, and the DC Armory.

 

Between the NFL championship game on January 18 and the Chinese New Year on January 26, Las Vegas valley restaurants and meeting facilities will no doubt be keeping their HD TVs tuned to the coverage of this historic inaugural event.   

 

But while the cost of accommodations around Washington D.C. continue to escalate – the cost of spending time at 4-star hotels and celebrating with a Bette Midler performance here are dropping.   Plenty of folks are turning to Las Vegas for their presidential party – the question is, where will you turn to find the stories and images that only Las Vegas can offer?  Stay linked to our VBA blog for news updates on these parties.

    RE: Obama – I’ll be the Democrats will be partying in rare style – especially considering the money they poured into taking the state from the Republicans!
