Event 12 as part of my 2013: 28 things in 28 days.
I’ve lived in DC for three State of the Union Address and up until this year I have never listened to one. Yes, I have listened to them before… in college I watched it every year, but in college I lived for this kind of stuff.
Moving to DC I grew uninterested in politics, but wanted to change that this year. I mean what is the point of living in DC if you don’t watch things like the SOTU or go to the mall for inauguration?
So I headed to Star and Shamrock where they were playing it on all the TVs and even had a drinking game to go along with it.
Of course I did not follow along with the drinking game, but a table behind me was enjoying themselves.
my favorites had to be "every time Obama mentions jobs, drink two for the unemployed"
All in all I’m glad I watched it.
And watching it in a bar with other people is definitely the way to do it... people in DC get really excited about this kind of stuff.
as always I will be posting updates on each days activity on this blog, but for more immediate updates check my twitter (@ksloss) #28things or instagram (@ksloss)
