Guests attending Michelle Obamas 50th birthday party at the White House later this month can look forward to a little Dougie but definitely not dinner.
Words out that the lucky VIPs invited to fete Mrs. Obama at a Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert party have been advised to dust off their dancing shoes and, more strictly, to eat before you come.
While its always nice to give the stiletto sporting crowd a heads-up, the East Wings EBYC directive has some folks in the party planning business scratching their heads.
I dont think its rude, but I do think its a little . . . different than what people are used to. Hows that for putting it delicately? joked Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post and co-author of Great Get-Togethers: Casual Gatherings and Elegant Parties at Home.

I hope Lizzie Post’s taxes are in order.
1. Get there EARLY because Mooch will be snacking well ahead of you!
2. Finally! She’s concerned about saving Taxpayer Dollars!
I’m guessing she’s staying in Hawaii for some fat gut sucking surgery. Would have liked to weigh her on the baggage scale.
Why don’t they just say “Hors D’oevres” and “Wine”?
“Eat before you come” sounds so crass. Like, we can’t afford to feed you because we spent $14 Million on our Hawaiian romp.
I think she means a little doggie
The WH is only serving heavy pu pu’s?
Or is that poo poo’s?
Dangs folks the mean republicans won’t pay barry enough to host a dinner party for the missus? And Oprah is tapped out
Someone (Rush?) should call Domino’s and have a truckload of pizzas delivered to the event.
Rude as hell—no shock here!
Breaking laws, breaking etiquette - what’s the difference?
The Moose says: I eated it all. There is only a few crackas left.
I still remember when Rush started a fund to pay for drugs for Dick Gephardt’s mother so she wouldn’t have to choose between medicine and eating dog food.
I’ll bet those snacks will cost us in the millions..by the time these free loader leave the white house there will not be any food left for the rest of us..
