I just got back from the DC for Obama party at Station 9 (on U Street), which was ca-raaaaaaaay-zee! The first floor was packed from wall to wall, with a huge screen showing CNN to masses of people standing in the middle section of the restaurant. Upstairs, there was a V.I.P room. I was told that many of the hardworking volunteers, canvassers, and extra devoted devotees would be there. Instead, I found a guy who knew a guy that worked at the restaurant, and a bunch of Spaniards. Whatever. Party’s going strong still, I’m sure.
First floor of Station 9. Creative Obama t-shirts and attire abound.
