President Obama Arrives in New York Today To Drink Champagne With Jay-Z and Beyoncé (and Appear on Letterman)

President Obama is heading into the city to attend campaign events today, including an appearance on David Letterman and a fancy party at the 40/40 Club with hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The New York Post reports that there will be a custom-designed 350-bottle champagne tower with $800-per-bottle bubbly. The tower is a monument to Jay-Z's favorite bottle, the Armand de Brignac. The rap­per famously put the drink on the map when he featured it in his 2006 music video for "Show Me What You Got."

The details of the party are being kept mum, and only a White House pool reporter will be allowed to file a brief report on the fundraising event.

The president will be speaking to roughly 100 people at the $40,000-per-person event, after addressing 200 people at a $12,500-per-family reception at the Waldorf.
