Texas Society Black Tie & Boots Inaugural Ball

One of the best and most sought after parties at the 1998, 2000 & 2004 Inauguration was the Texas Society Black Tie & Boots Ball-and yes, the men are wearing boots and cowboy hats. To purchase tickets, you had to be a member of the Texas State Society or be willing to pay a pretty penny to purchase tickets from a reseller.

So, for the 2009 election, my husband and I were not going to be left behind. We joined the Texas State Society and purchased 4 tickets. Even though we did attend the Clinton Inauguration in 1998 as well as the Bush 2000 Inauguration, we have no interest in being part of the craziness that will surely descend on DC next week.

So, like most others who were optimistic on the election outcome and were not going to miss this party again, we are trying to sell our tickets via ebay. We sold the first set, and for the second set, let's say, we can barely give them away.

If you are interested, please let me know. We have two left at a very reasonable price.

Oh my goodness. I was at the 2004 black tie and boots (i worked early in the evening for a georgetown boutique so i got in for free) and it was THE BEST PARTY EVER. If I was still living in D.C. I would totally buy the tickets from you!

I keep hearing how tickets are impossible to get and then I hear stories like this and others about how people are trying to "rent out" (or whatever) their apartments, houses, etc. and there are no takers. I think the media is trying to make it look like this is way more popular than it is.

Sounds like a great time!!! Wish I were going to be in DC just to go to the party!

Good Luck! I hate when I have to pass on something fun because of logistics :( I hope you find a generous buyer soon!
