    AP – Darrell Queen, with Kolb Electric, changes lighting fixtures on Pennsylvania Avenue
                                     Thursday, Jan. 8, …

WASHINGTON – One ton each of chocolate and cheese. About 1,500 cases of beer. Eight
hundred pounds of bison.

Those are just a few items that the Marriott Wardman Park, Washington's largest hotel, is
stocking for the 49,000 meals it expects to serve Jan. 17 through Inauguration Day. The hotel is
among many businesses and government agencies trying to quantify whatever they can before
President-elect Barack Obama's swearing-in on Jan. 20.

"It's just amazing," said Christopher Otway, the Wardman's catering director. "The chef hands you
the list and says these are the quantities they need and you say, 'Oh my God!'"

For inaugural planners, dealing with the numbers at first was daunting, said Peter Gage, parade
director for the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

The trick to keeping track? "You've got to break it down," Gage said.

A rundown of the numbers, including more than a few estimates:


$40 million, the estimated cost of the inaugural parade, balls, opening ceremonies, giant
television screens on National Mall and other expenses for the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

432, total Presidential Inaugural Committee staff members.

0, how many of the free 240,000 tickets that have been distributed thus far for the swearing-in
ceremony. They go out this coming week.

• 58, law-enforcement and other agencies working on security.

• 8,000, District of Columbia police officers on duty, and those hired from departments around the
country.

• 1,000, U.S. Park Police officers on duty, and those hired from outside departments.

• 550, Metro transit police on duty, and those hired from outside departments.

• 10,000, National Guardsmen helping law enforcement agencies in and around the city.

• 120,000, passengers Metro trains can carry per hour on Inauguration Day.

• 2 million, inauguration subway maps Metro is printing.



                                                                                                            7
• 10,000, charter buses expected to descend on the city.

• 600, hotel rooms left in Washington.

• 90,000, unique hits that Destination D.C., the city's tourism bureau, has received on its
inauguration Web site.

• 13,000, military and civilian participants in the inaugural parade, including marching bands.

• 112, light bulbs replaced in lampposts on Pennsylvania Avenue parade route.

• 10, large screens broadcasting swearing-in on the National Mall.

• 1,000, vendors so far who have received licensed spots to sell wares around parade route and
city streets.

• 15,000 to 18,000, volunteers helping Presidential Inaugural Committee around the city.

• 10, official inaugural balls.


• 12,000, eggs that chefs at the Willard InterContinental Hotel will use for meals from Jan. 17
through the inauguration.


• 10,000, square footage of the swearing-in stage.


• 6, number of bicycle rickshaws D.C. Pedicab plans to operate.

                           The 2009 Inaugural Luncheon Menu
                                      First Course



                                                                                           9
                                  * Seafood Stew
              * Duckhorn Vineyards, 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

                                     Second Course

* A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck), served with Sour Cherry Chutney and
                              Molasses Sweet Potatoes
                   * Goldeneye, 2005 Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

                                      Third Course

               * Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glacé
          * Korbel Natural “Special Inaugural Cuvée,” California Champagne

The first course will be served on replicas of the china from the Lincoln Presidency,
which was selected by Mary Todd Lincoln at the beginning of her husband's term in
office. The china features the American bald eagle standing above the U.S. Coat of Arms,
surrounded by a wide border of "solferino," a purple-red hue popular among the
fashionable hosts of the day.

The floral arrangements, designed by JLB Floral of Alexandria, Virginia, will feature
hydrangeas in shades of purple and blue, Hot Mojolica spray roses, bright Red Charlotte
roses and light blue Delphinium in a footed brass compote. After the luncheon, the floral
arrangements will be given to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

The backdrop for the luncheon will be a painting, chosen for occasion, and borrowed
from the New-York Historical Society. The painting, "View of the Yosemite Valley," by
Thomas Hill, reflects the majestic landscape of the American West and the dawn of a
new era. The subject of the painting, Yosemite Valley, represents an important but often
overlooked event from Lincoln's presidency -- his signing of the 1864 Yosemite Grant,
which set aside Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias as a public
reserve.

During the Inaugural Luncheon it is traditional for the President and Vice President to be
presented with gifts by the Congress on behalf of the American people. The President and
Vice President will each be presented with a framed official photograph taken of their
swearing-in ceremony by a Senate photographer, as well as flags flown over the U.S.
Capitol during the inaugural ceremonies.

The President and Vice President will also receive one-of-a-kind engraved crystal bowls,
created by the Lenox Company of Bristol, Pennsylvania. President Obama will receive a
bowl depicting the White House on a crystal base inscribed with “Barack H. Obama, The
Presidential Inauguration, January 20, 2009.” Vice President Biden will receive a bowl
depicting the United States Capitol, on a crystal base inscribed with “Joseph R. Biden Jr.




                                                                                        10
, The Vice Presidential Inauguration, January 20, 2009.” The bowls were designed by
Timothy Carder and hand-cut by master glass-cutter Peter O’Rourke.

Each guest at the Inaugural Luncheon will receive a crystal vase etched with a depiction
of the U.S. Capitol, designed by Paula Skene, an artist in Emeryville, California, and
handcrafted by Evergreen Crystal of Montrose, Colorado.

The Smithsonian Chamber Players, who are artists in residence at the Smithsonian
National Museum of American History, will provide music for the Inaugural Luncheon.
The ensemble, directed by cellist Kenneth Slowik, is renowned for its performances of
period music on the musical instruments in the Smithsonian’s collection.

Members of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies are Senator
Dianne Feinstein, Chairman; Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee Bob
Bennett; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; House
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer; and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

Participants at the luncheon:

The luncheon, hosted by the members of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural
Ceremonies, has been a tradition for more than a century. Approximately 200 guests
including the new President, Vice President, members of their families, the Supreme
Court, Cabinet designees, and members of Congressional leadership will attend the event
in Statuary Hall.
