According to media reports, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invited the 192 Democrat Members of the House of Representatives out to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant in Washington, D.C. Saturday during the first day of the government shutdown.
Politicos Jake Sherman was first to report on Pelosis dinner.
✔ @JakeSherman PELOSI hosting a dinner for all House Dems tonight at aqua al 2..... 3:28 PM - Jan 20, 2018
The Hills Scott Wong reported the menu, On the menu at Pelosis dinner at Acqua al 2: cheeses and meats, pasta, lots of wine and for dessert cheesecake with strawberry drizzle & tiramisu
@scottwongDC Members fan out across DC for dinner. Spotted Alabama lawmaker grabbing pizzas at Matchbox on Barracks Row; Dems heading to Acqua al 2
Acqua Al 2, located blocks from the Capitol, describes itself as an authentic Italian restaurant located in the heart of the historic Eastern Market in Washington, DC. The menu is not cheap and not the most expensive either for D.C., but dinner for two would put a hurt on a working couples budget with dinner entrees running from $18 to $39, not including drinks, appetizers and dessert.
Military families blasted Pelosi for living it up while soldiers are going without due to the shutdown.
🇺🇸Thomas-S Fla🇺🇸 @thomassfl Hi @NancyPelosi Can my @USArmy daughter go? For some reason she's not getting a paycheck and illegals get more support from dems then she does...personally I think its idiotic to hold up military paychecks... The play with high explosives... pic.twitter.com/rIzpJWKkbo

Great optics there, Nan.
Maybe they should have taken some illegals with them..why don’t these people dine and live with the criminal aliens they want in this country?
Italian restaurant? I hope the black ca-cas members didn’t go. That would be culture appropriation.
I would hope that the bill will be paid by the DNC and not us peasant tax payers. Right, San Fran Nan!
Will make a great 2018 mid-term political ad for the Republicans. Let the Dems keep celebrating.
Pelosi is eating high on the hog, while our troops are probably eating
stored MRE’s. Pelosi is digusting.
Did Piglosi have to sweep any Thousand Dollar Crumbs off the table?
Democrats run for office because they want to do good.
Most of them do pretty darn good - for themselves.
They end up millionaires with an annual retirement higher than the average citizen earns in his/her peak earning years.
1) uuuuhhhhhhhhh ... she was taking cold medicine, so this isn’t her fault.
2) aaaaahhhhhhhh ... the whole dinner thing was ... uhhh .. it was Trump’s idea. So blame him.
Now that’s funny!
Would love some video and a live mike of part of the event ....
Say it isn't so!
Remember Marie Antoinette!
The blade may await.
Figure at least $75 a head including drinks.
That's $14,400 without tip.
Add a 20% tip of $2,880 and the meal comes in at $17,280.
Nancy had a coupon and it was about to expire
She fiddles while her country burns. Burn it down. That is just fine.but no damned amnesty!! Zero!!
If only the RNC has the brains to make a great campaign ad of this.
