Inauguration Party -- What to bring?

We've been invited to celebrate the inauguration and we've been asked to bring along some celebratory food or drink. I'm looking for clever, creative suggestions. Can anyone help me?

      1. Here's the link from my election night party:

        We served: Democratatuille, Chimichangoes We Can Believe In, Yes We Cantalope and Barack Berry Fruit Salad, Baby Barack Ribs, Elitist Salad with Arugula and Goat Cheese, As American As Apple Pie, and Campaign Trail Mix.

          thanks for making my menu for the night.....I would add to it making Barack Mixed Berry Fruit Salad ;)

        2. as a nod to Obama's Hawaiian roots, you could do a traditional luau dish with taro...or maybe a Chicago-style deep dish Hawaiian pizza.

          1. Don't forget the Spam musabi!

              Oh no, you beat me to it! I thought I was gonna be clever with my spam musubi rec. But seriously, try it! Just make sure to use regular Spam--the low sodium or Spam Light just takes away the snack's salty goodness! (Yes, I used the words goodness and Spam in the same sentence--but try it, you'll see!)
