capitol-jan-10If you’re lucky enough to have tickets for next week’s swearing in, new information on where to go and what to do on Tuesday is available courtesy of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

A few key changes: security gates will now be open at 8am rather than 9am to ensure everyone the 240,000 ticketed guests can get to their seats, and when you pick up your tickets, take note of the color and check out the map to find your entrance.

Inauguration of the President: JCCIC Releases Map and Ticket Information for Inaugural Swearing-in Ceremonies.

I stopped by the Capitol last night to check out the status of the construction, and just take it all in before the big events happen next week. There was definitely some sort of energy there–if its possible for something to feel historic, I think that was it! Of course, it would have been great if we were at the other end of the Mall to see the Obamas pay a visit to the Lincoln Memorial, or at Ben’s Chili Bowl when PEBO got a half smoke with Mayor Fenty.
