He's going to be a true man about town. Here's an idea of where he'll be on Tuesday night.
"President-elect Barack Obama will host a Youth Inaugural Ball, five Regional Inaugural balls, and a ball for his Home States - Illinois and Hawaii. Vice President-elect Joe Biden will host a ball for his Home States as well: Delaware and Pennsylvania. These balls round out the list of official inaugural balls to be held on Tuesday, January 20, along with the previously announced Neighborhood Inaugural Ball and Commander in Chief's Ball. The President-elect and the Vice President-elect will appear at each of the ten inaugural balls."
In theory, he's actually going to five party venues. There are four balls at smaller paces -- the Washington Hilton near Dupont Circle, the Union Station in NE Washington, the Armory near the JFK Stadium and the National Building Museum near Penn Quarter.
The big venue is the massive Convention Center, which from an overhead takes over more than a few city blocks. There are six balls happening there, including the home states balls and the Neighbourhood Ball.
Here's a map I put together.
