DC neighborhood throwing Barack Obama a birthday party

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - It may be Barack Obama’s birthday, but he won’t be the only one celebrating Friday night for #ObamaDay.

The Shaw neighborhood is throwing a birthday bash for the 56-year-old.

Of course, the Obamas are invited. After all, they live just two miles away in Kalorama, but so far they haven’t returned the RSVP.
