It's time once again for CGD State of the Union Bingo! On Tuesday, February 12th (also known as Fat Tuesday) President Obama will deliver the 2013 State of the Union address and we'll be watching to find out what global issues are on the president's mind.
This year, we're taking our ink daubers to Buffalo Billiards* in Dupont Circle. We've reserved a private room (with 17 TVs!) for optimal viewing and wholesome policy-wonk fun. Seating begins at 8:00pm, and the State of the Union (and bingo) will begin promptly at 9:00pm. Food and drinks are on you - CGD State of the Union Bingo cards, prizes and Mardi Gras swag are on us!
As always, friends and family are welcome (although all guests must be 21+). Demand is high and space is limited - RSVP early.
*If you can't join us at Buffalo Billiards, check out CGD's website for details on how you can host your own State of the Union Bingo event. We've updated the online version, so you can participate on your iPad, smart phone, or laptop, whether you watch in your living room or at your favorite watering hole.
