Obamapalooza was not GF, but was still totally awesome

November 11th, 2008 by Mandy

The jumbotron and the masses of excited onlookers.

Washington, D.C. is normally the center of the political universe, but as I type right now, the street behind me is blocked off to allow for a certain motorcade to arrive at the Federal Building in Downtown Chicago. Last week, I had the pleasure of having a ticket to THE event of the season: OBAMAPALOOZA. It was incredible, moving, exciting, and all those warm and fuzzy things.

I’m sorry, Gluties, but I have bad news. The event was NOT GF-friendly. The ONLY food served: Pizza. By the time the speech was over, I was so hungry and emotionally-drained that I was shoving through the crowd at 1:00 am with all my cameras and videocameras and journalistic junk, trying to find the one-and-only place open for eats in downtown: 7-freaking-11.

Whatever, it was still totally awesome and totally worth it.
