Obama Inauguration Happy Hour
In just a week, you can join other Obama fanatics as they gather to view the historic inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States:
Inauguration Happy Hour at Carpe Diem
“Dear friends in hope,
Thank you! Next week, the hope for our country, the next president of the United States, Senator Barack Obama will be sworn in–and you’re part of it! So, THANK YOU!
And now, we should celebrate! A local bar Carpe Diem (14th and Grand) has generously opened their upstairs for us. For those that aren’t heading down to DC, we should all watch the speech together as the Hoboken Hopemongers that we are! We’ll have coverage of the festivities playing, as well as we’ll watch Barack’s swearing in & subsequent speech, at least once. We would love for you to join us!
$30 cash pays for the Open Bar for three hours. There will also be light refreshments. Limited space, so definitely RSVP legitimately & soon!
And, in the spirit of grassroots organizing & community outreach, please bring sturdy paper plates, napkins, cups or plastic forks & knives to donate to the local shelter.
Can’t wait to see you there! YES WE DID!
(Parking isn’t that bad here, but, it’s still Hoboken, so if you’re taking public transit, take the Light Rail to 9th St.)”
[411 Travel Note: it appears that if you want to avoid the 9th St. Light rail station – it may be .06 miles less walking if you took the Weehawken stop and walked under the bridge instead.]
