CAP Holds Swanky Inaugural Brunch

Center for American Progress (CAP), the liberal think tank with deep connections to President Obama, held an inaugural brunch yesterday (January 20) at the National Portrait Gallery with Google and Elle magazine.

Here is what the New York Times was saying about the event:
Google is toning things down from its 2009 inaugural bash, which featured dancing, a game room and big names like Ben Affleck, John Cusack and Craig Newmark (of Craigslist). This time, the search engine (which has a big legislative agenda) is partnering with Elle and the Center for American Progress for a Leading Women in Washington brunch, toasting the record number of new congresswomen, many of whom are expected to attend. No binders full of women here, just the real thing.
Here is a photo album of the event, which was invitation-only.

On January 21, the Third Way, The Huffington Post, and White House Correspondents Insider held an inauguration viewing part at the Old Ebbitt Grill.
