Did You Attend the Inauguration?

If you made in to D.C. for the inauguration, let everyone know how it was. Drop some comments below about your experiences.

If you have photos you'd like to share, send them to our web guru, Cameron Knight: cknight@citybeat.com. He can organize them into a gallery on our photo page or even a multimedia show and we can create a new photo link on our inauguration section, Road to the Presidency. Cameron has a slide show there from last night's celebrations in Northside.

Looking back over the tons of coverage from yesterday, I particularly liked The New York Times' live blog and the Washington City Paper's exhaustive coverage via blog, Twitter, Flickr, etc. Live video feeds didn't work well from any sites I tried during the day yesterday, so I resorted to that big black box in the back room here at CityBeat World Headquarters. Back in the day we called it a TV. Don't know what the kids are calling it now.

I attended the Lincoln 2.0 Inaugural Ball at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. It was an awesome, truly awesome experience. On Monday we went to the White House (or as close as we could get). We took pictures of the spot were President Obama gave his speech, and took pictures of the stands were the guest would sit on Tuesday. We didn’t go to parade or to see President Obama being sworn in, because we wanted to drive home and beat the crowd. Still we came away feeling like we were a part of history.
