Those of you planning on taking your visiting grandparents to the Tonga Room tonight might want to adjust your evening plans. As the Appeal pointed out last week, the First Lady is scheduled to make an appearance at the Fairmont hotel tonight for a fundraiser supporting Barbara Boxer and other local Democrats less than a week after her husband made a similar visit.

The reception and dinner are schedule for 3:30pm to 8pm, so it seems Mrs. Obama will miss out on happy hour, which is too bad because we never really know when they're finally going to shut that thing down.
