Hey guys and WELCOME TO AMERICA. Next week is going to be incredible because 1.) Inauguration and 2.) we are throwing a pretty awesome 17-hour Inauguration party on the 21st . The discounted $15 presale tickets are about to sell out ( you can buy them here) so hurry, but we do have a pair to give away today. There will be dancing and awkward hugs and a photobooth and cotton candy and a zillion TV screens and dancing and DJs and karaoke and free movie tickets and SO MUCH MORE.
To enter to win, leave us a comment telling us the most ridiculous patriotic outfit you’d wear for Obama. (Personally I’d go red, white and blue pleather with a crown of sparklers that would somehow NOT set fire to my hair.) We’ll notify the winner by COB tomorrow. COOL? Cool.
HERE ARE ALL THE THINGS SAID TICKETS WILL INVOLVE:
Join BYT to welcome in the 2nd black president of the United States!
returning to the historic
Bohemian Caverns / LIV Nightclub / Tap & Parlour complex on U St!
We’re taking over all three levels all day starting with a viewing party for the swearing in ceremony.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be for sale in Tap & Parlour, so feel free to use us as a base camp for your inauguration adventures throughout the day, or just happy hour it up, dinner it down, and/or party like it’s 2009 all night long.
(actual quote from their press bio: “Sister Taraka recently published a manifesto on the “NOW AGE” that puts forth Prince Rama’s aesthetic and metaphysical philosophies, which has been met with both hatred and praise from art and music worlds alike.” AWESOME)
