Inauguration Fever: Catch It!
It's less than a week away! Get pumped! Trinity Church will execute a rare three-and-a-half hour "full peal" of its bells on January 20. The Queens Public Library will have it on a big screen; "seating limited." (Free screenings as well at Barbes, BAM, and other Brooklyn locations.) Dunkin' Donuts will issue a commemorative "Stars & Stripes" donut. Harlem has a full dance card, including a "Rumba Pa' Obama" at East Harlem's FB Lounge. And on the Upper East, an Obamacentric menu at Southern Hospitality including a "Star-Spangled Burger" and a "President Elect Combo." (Don't bother ordering extra cheese, it's already there.)
Shut-ins such as ourselves will celebrate the event via Twitter. (What, we have to live blog? We thought it was a national holiday!)
