This past weekend, DC played host to 800,000 of its closest friends to inaugurate the second term of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. N&P celebrated the auspicious occasion by party hopping–at private brunches around town, at Washingtonian’s Starry Night Ball (tickets thanks to Guest of a Guest), and at The Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center. N&P is thrilled to have been front row for this historic moment in our nation’s history–it was a truly memorable and fun filled few days.
