The dinner will be served family-style, starting with a large selection of Bavarian appetizers served at 5pm before the inaugural address. Then after President Obama's speech, the main course will be served: Hendl, Ente, Wurstl auf Saurkraut, Serviettenknoedel, Blaukraut, Wirsing, Kaesespaetzle, etc.
Inauguration Day, January 21st, is also Martin Luther King Day. After President Obama's second inaugural address, the program will include a tribute to Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement.
This is going to be a very special event that everyone attending will enjoy. I hope to greet many of you there.
Fast Fact, Inaugural History: The 20th Amendment to the Constitution, which changed the beginning of a Presidential term from March 4 to January 20, was ratified in 1933, and took effect for President Franklin D. RooseveltÕs second term in 1937. Only six times in the nation's history has the constitutionally-mandated date for a Presidential Inauguration fallen on a Sunday. January 20, 2013 will be the seventh time, and following historical precedent, the public ceremony will be held at the U.S. Capitol on Monday, January 21, 2013. In a tradition that dates back to 1917, the White House will likely arrange a private swearing in before noon on January 20, 2013. (Source: http://www.inaugural.senate.gov/about/jan-21 )
