Wagyu Steak Is Among The Guests At Tonight's Cocktail Party At The White House


At tonight's cocktail party at the White House, President and Mrs. Obama will be hosting Six House Democrats, six House Republicans, six Senate Democrats, six Senate Republicans and the star of the night just might be the Wagyu Steak. Here's the scoop from ABCNews.com:

"Here's the list of President Obama's invited guests to the White House cocktail party tonight -- essentially the bipartisan bicameral leadership of the House and Senate.

Six House Democrats, six House Republicans, six Senate Democrats, six Senate Republicans. Their spouses are invited as well.

Hors d'œuvres -- chicken curry, wagyu steak -- will be served in addition to drinks.

President Obama, it should be noted, is not a particularly big drinker, though he has been known to enjoy a vodka martini time and again.

In addition to the congressional leaders below, several senior White House staffers will be in attendance, including press secretary Robert Gibbs, senior adviser David Axelrod, senior adviser Pete Rouse, and deputy chief of staff Mona Sutphen.

The party will come after the House passes the president's stimulus package with almost no Republican support, which could make for some interesting cocktail party chatter."
