Curious thing missing from Michelle Obama’s birthday party
Jan. 6, 2014 12:50pm Eddie Scarry

First lady Michelle Obama is ringing in her 50th birthday and she’s celebrating with a party at the White House that’s missing something: namely, food.
Michelle Obama 50th birthday party wont have dinner

Instructions on the invite tell recipients to eat before they come, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune:

   
Quote
The White House has been sending out save-the-date emails for a Jan. 18 gala dubbed “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert,” sources told the Tribune.

    Guests are being told: Wear comfortable shoes, eat before you come and practice your dance moves. Who’s invited and who’ll entertain remain under wraps.


We’ve requested comment from the White House about the invitation.

The Washington Post interviewed several party experts on the matter.

“To ask people to ‘eat before you come’ is not the way I would have done it,” Colin Cowie, celebrity party planner, told the Post. “I always think of the food. When it comes to making people feel welcome we give them great music, a well-stocked bar, and excellent food — and you do it abundantly.”
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

Exactly.....the way they worded these invitations they sound like rubes...

‘eat before you come’

Got to admire Obama. Who else would throw an orgy for his wife's 50th?  :smokin: :whistle: :whistle:

Maybe the money being saved is enough to get Moochelle a couple of muu muus in Hawaii - from Omar the Tentmaker. :silly:

They're just being considerate of the taxpayer by cutting back on lavish parties.  :silly:  :laugh:

Yeah, that's what they're doing.

I wonder if they are going to "choom" before the snacks are offered? :Odance:
