Get your inaugural-watch on


Here's a rundown on some of the inauguration watch events taking place next Tuesday, January 20. I'll post others if I receive word of them.

AG and early Obama supporter Patrick Lynch:

In celebration of Barack Obama being sworn in as the 44th President of the United States on this Tuesday, January 20, Attorney General Patrick Lynch is hosting an inauguration watch party at PPAC (Providence Performing Arts Center). The Attorney General is asking the public to join him in watching this historic moment on PPAC's live-feed big screen television.

The event at PPAC (220 Weybosset Street in Providence) is free, non-partisan, and open to all. Doors will open at 10:30 AM and the official program will begin at 11:30 AM.

Since this is a community event, please feel free to spread the word. The Attorney General does not want anyone who wishes to be part of this historic event to be left out.
