FINALLY! I am soooooo excited. There is so much happening in D.C. this weekend that I just can't STAND IT! I know most locals are staying home because of the hassle. But I cannot be around the corner from history and not try to participate. I'll report back on the haps! Tomorrow, I'm hitting Ibiza for Vibe's Icons Ball with Mary J. Blige and Common; Sunday, I'm headed to a gospel concert at my church (oddly hosted by Vivica Fox) featuring Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Tye Tribbet, Marvin Sapp, etc.; and Tuesday, I'll be headed downtown for the swearing-in and possibly staying for the parade. WOOOOHOOO!

And who knows what else I'll do as the city is jumping with activities! I'm contemplating going to the opening events on Sunday, but I don't want to get stuck downtown and not be able to make my evening concert. I briefly contemplated going to see Jigga at the Warner Theater, but tickets were $500 each. I'd like an evening with Jay Z, but unless that includes a limo ride, dinner with him and Beyonce, two dozen roses and a personal concert--it's not really worth all of that.
Happy four day weekend!!!

Hey! I WISH I was going to an event but none of my friends want to go and I don't feel like going alone.

Enjoy yourself, lady! Be sure to take lots of pictures for those of us who will be working.

Hey Tee! I understand girl. Well, I'm going to the inauguration alone. Future Mr. TD doesn't want to be bothered with the crowd. But I would probably not go to one of the club events without friends or somebody--it's just not as fun.

Smarty - My condolences. Will do!
