How to Score Tickets to the 2013 Inauguration of President Barack Obama // PLUS: Ticket Info for the Inaugural Balls

Alrighty folks, Maryland Juice is back in action after a much-needed mental cleanse from the sizzling political action of this past year. I decided to resume the blog with some very practical information on the upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama's second term as El Presidente de los Estados Unidos (English-only? Pfft!). Below you can see some information on how to request inauguration tickets, along with details on some inaugural balls that you may be interested in. The bottom-line is that unless you are a well-connected insider, you need to request free inaugural tickets from your members of Congress. The inauguration and official "Obama" balls are on Monday, January 21, 2012, while the state parties are holding events on Sunday, January 20th.

Get Crunk w/ POTUS & FLOTUS!
As in 2008, there will be no guarantee that you will get tickets, but if you don't there will surely be folks peddling their tix on eBay. If all else fails, you can always huddle in steerage with the rest of us on The Mall. As for the inaugural balls, those will cost money, and the ones that Obama attends will likely be hotly sought-after tickets. Without further ado, here are the links to request tickets, followed by information on some balls. Note that I couldn't find ticket links for every member of Congress. If you happen to have one of the missing links, please email me the info at ¡Muchísimas gracias!
