Photos from The Obama 100 Party at McSweeney's!

We raised over $12,000 at the sold-out Obama 100 fundraiser, and all had an amazing time.


This was the beginning. By 9pm the room was PACKED! So much fun.

















More photos courtesy of Winni Wintermeyer and his fabulous photo booth here.

Thanks again to all of the generous food and beverage donors!

  2. We'd love to add some photos from this event to our upcoming TasteTV book, THE OBAMA MENU. It's just the kind of thing we're documenting in it.
