Where will you be on the night of January 20th, 2009?

At the end of the historical inauguration day of our 44th President, Barack H. Obama, what will you be doing?

Why not celebrate in a fun atmosphere surrounded by friends, family, and/or other people of importance. A great function to attend may be the HBC-100 Black Men of Maryland Inaugural Ball. Have good time in Washington, DC while supporting the new president. Have a "ball" at the Historically Black Colleges & Universities' Inaugural Ball.
