Local Democrats are being invited to an inaugural ball Jan. 21 that will coincide with President Barack Obama’s inaugural ball.
Obama’s inaugural ball will be broadcast on large-screen televisions, while partygoers in San Luis Obispo enjoy dancing to DJ Malik Thorne. The event will include free appetizers and desserts, and a no-host bar.
“It’s a great way to celebrate without leaving home” says chairperson Pat Harris. “Inaugural tickets are hard to obtain — so it’s much easier to buy one for our local event.” She invited guests “to dress up and have themselves a ball.”
Tickets are $10 in advance, $5 for students, and $15 at the door.
Space is limited, and Harris says that four years ago the party sold out. Tickets are available online at http://actblue.com/page/inauguralball2013 and at the Democratic Party office at 1406 Broad St., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
