Ironically, when the President gets up to speak about improving the economy for the middle class, he will be standing next to a pyramid made of 350 bottles of Hov’s favorite bubbly, Ace Of Spades.
A club rep says:
“It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”Although the 40/40 hosts some of the city’s brightest stars, there will be no party-crashers or special UNINVITED guests to tonight’s event.
But the White House, which meticulously controls Obama’s image, is not expected to release any photos of the president’s appearance at the lavish club.
Details of the party are “under lock and key,” according to the rep, and the White House was guarding the guest list as if it were the latest intelligence profile of Iran’s nuclear program.
Instead, only a White House pool reporter, allowed brief admittance, will file a report tonight during Obama’s ninth fund-raising trip to the Big Apple this year.
All the campaign would say yesterday was that the president would speak to about 100 people at the $40,000-per-person event, after addressing 200 donors at a $12,500-per-family reception at the Waldorf.
