WHITE HOUSE

Obamas Host State Dinner

All eyes are on the Obamas as they prepare to make their hosting debut on Tuesday, when Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh comes to the White House. Though the affair coordinators have been tight-lipped about the event, it is known that curry will be making its first appearance on the menu of a White House banquet. To accommodate Singh, who is a vegetarian, vegetables from Michelle's garden will be used, and the dinner's goodie bag will include a jar of honey from her beehive. The menu will primarily be American, "with a nod to the Indian palate." In deference to economic hard times, the Obamas are keeping the guest list to a modest 130. Dinner will be followed by dancing on the lawn, to which 200 additional guests are invited. Rumored to be on the guest list are Oprah Winfrey and Caroline Kennedy.
