THE TEXAS BLACK TIE AND BOOTS BALL!

REPRESENTING THE LONE STAR STATE AT THE INAUGURATION!









The Insite and thousands of other Texans made a stop by the Texas Black Tie and Boots Ball held Monday night in Maryland. The event was held at the new Gaylord Resort and Convention Center.
The ball is put on by the Texas State Society of Washington, D.C. Each year since President Bush was elected I hear the formal party just got bigger and bigger. Not sure how President-Elect Obama’s win will affect the popularity of the ball. There were lots of drinks and eats for all the guests along with tight security. Word was Denzel Washington was floating around but I never got a chance to see him. But I did run into Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee along with her son and daughter. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison stopped and posed for a picture. Senator John Cornyn was like a rock star greeting lots of his constituents and fans. Also, Congressman Gene Green and his wife agreed to take a picture after speaking to the Texas crowd. There was also a live band and country singer Neal McCoy performed. Here are the pictures from the Insite cam!
