Perhaps I spoke too soon on the Baltimore Washington Black McDonald’s Operators Association Inaugural Ball. On Monday, I posted the invitation (the only ball invite I received on this historic occasion), marking the event’s $200 price tag with a snarky “Hamburgler” reference. Today, I received a follow-up e-mail from the association with a “sneak-peek” at the ball’s guest list, which includes Washington Wizard Gilbert Arenas, Redskins player Jason Campbell, DJ “Big Tigger,” scholar Michael Eric Dyson, and Mayor Adrian Fenty.
Nevermind that the Black McDonald’s Owners Associations ranks somebody called “Big Tigger” higher than both Dyson and Fenty. Nevermind that I, too, appear on the ball’s guest list. Agent Zero, D.C.’s most adorable and incomprehensible basketball-playing eccentric might be there!
I’m getting closer to believing that anyone would be convinced to pay $200 for this, but questions remain. Prithee BMOA: will the buffet include a Filet-O-Fish option?
