We all knew the inauguration wasn't going to be as big and crowded as it was in 2009, but here's one outcome we weren't expecting: Unofficial inaugural balls, including those thrown by state societies, are having trouble selling tickets, according to the Reliable Source.
Tickets for the Illinois State Society's gala and the Texas State Society's Black Tie and Boots party, which have been hot in previous years, are still available. And it's not just black-tie events: the Brewer's Ball at Churchkey, which features a chance to hobnob with the brewers of Allagash, Schlafly and Flying Dog, is even offering a buy-three-$150-tickets, get-one-free deal.
