Dinner at The White House

Who says they don't know how to party in DC? The White House Correspondant White House Correspondents’ Association dinner—also dubbed  Washington’s “nerd prom”  is a once a year occasion when Washington politicians, Hollywood stars, and New York media bigwigs all flock to the city for a 3,000-guest dinner at the Hilton. Surrounding this bombastic extravagance, every year, the media outlets gets fierce, with Vanity Fair, Bloomberg, People, Time, and MSNBC hosting events competing for guests and press mentions.
