So I've heard of more than a few inauguration celebrations happening around town and nearby. What are your Obama celebration plans? Are we missing any good ones?

The ones in the image and link, above:
  • Democratic Party inauguration gala in Napa

  • Inauguration gala at Gaia

  • Kelley's No Bad Days Cafe

  • ...and others
Here are some other ones that came in via The Fruit's tipline:

Red White and Blue event at Oxbow and Oxbow Wine Merchants This is such an auspicious event that we wanted to witness it on television with lots of friends. To that end we would like to invite you to Oxbow Wine Merchant to join us for the festivities at 9am on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 and watch the Inauguration of Barack Obama. We will be showing it on our big screen TV all day, but if you want to watch it live from DC on that special morning we will be there with some delectable treats. You can order breakfast from our kitchen; the Oxbow Public Market has several shops that offer pastries, coffee, and tea for something lighter. If you are like us and want to nibble on some cheese for your morning meal, the Oxbow Cheese Merchant will be open to make that option available too. On top of that, at 10:30am, Ryan Hill and John Truchard, from the two featured wineries will be on hand to pour and discuss their respective wines that are expertly matched with the Crater Lake Blue Cheese. That flight will be available all day. Facebook event page
