2009 Washington Governor's Inaugural Ball
We got our tickets! Unfortunately the event takes place midweek in Olympia, but it's definitely worth making the effort to go. Sarah and I went four years ago. Highlights included the first chocolate fountain either of us had ever seen, meeting the governor, and sitting at the Secretary of State's desk. Pretty much all the government chambers were open and you could go through wherever you pleased: the court, the legislature, and more.
Tickets are $100 and you need to call (no online ordering). The website with information is nearly impossible to find; it's located at http://wastategovball.org. We'd love to have some friends join us this year, so if you're at all interested, we urge you to get your tickets soon. (You can see photos from the last inaugural ball here.)
