My Old Kentucky Home
Saturday night, we kicked off the Inauguration Weekend with the Bluegrass Ball put on by the Kentucky State Society at the Wardman Park Marriott.
|My date for the weekend.|
At 8pm, they opened the doors to the ballroom and a high school marching band played the Call to the Post before everyone entered the room. We took our seats for the parade of dignitaries before the evening program started. Most of the Kentucky congressmen where in attendance as well as Ashley Judd and Miss Kentucky.
For dinner, we were served a delicious meal prepared by Chef Edward Lee who has made appearances on Top Chef and Iron Chef America.
|The chef himself.|
The bag also included a Bourbon Trail Passport that you can fill up when you visit the different distilleries. Talk about a grown up Oregon Trail. We decided to add a trip to Kentucky to the bucket list. You just can't beat bourbon and horse racing.
We left there and headed to the Hamilton for an after party hosted by Chelsea Clinton with Will.i.am as the DJ. Talk about going from one extreme to the other.
We had the best time dancing the night away. And this was all just Saturday night.
