An interesting email made its way into my inbox yesterday afternoon. The Presidential Inauguration Committee is happy to announce that their swag shop is officially open. Get your Obama Inaugural keepsakes and tchotkes while their hot! Politico’s Donovan Slack says, “The Presidential Inaugural Committee officially kicked off memorabilia sales Thursday with the opening of its online store and announced plans to open a retail location on F Street before the inauguration Jan. 21."
And speaking of Inauguration, DC residents will be happy to know the celebration will go into the wee hours at some bars around town. Guest of a Guest says, “DC's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) recently released applications to bars that want to be open until 4am during the entire week of Inauguration! Bars may apply to be open for 8 days for a small fee, beginning on Monday night, January 14, to Monday night, January 22.” Who do you think you'll see more of at the bar? Democrats or Republicans?
