This past Sunday night, photographer Deidre Schoo attended a birthday party for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama at St. Joe Nick’s Pub. Despite a cake that never arrived, Obama supporters danced, sang and drank in celebration of the now 47 year old candidate. ’47’ was the theme: the door donation was $4.70, and attendees performed for either four minutes and seven seconds or delivered a 47-second birthday wish. The party also featured home-made birthday greetings from Barack fans. Photos over here.
