Hollywood is back at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., where President Biden‘s finally getting to entertain a foreign dignitary — French President Emmanuel Macron — as well as famous supporters.
Thursday night marks the return of swanky state dinners … as the COVID pandemic forced Biden to cancel such events for the first 2 years of his administration, but the celebs are flocking back to the White House. No shocker.
All the pomp and circumstance is for France … Biden’s working to repair the U.S. relationship with the European power.
These celebs are among 300 guests at the black-tie dinner, with folks dining on the best cheese America can offer Macron … plus Maine lobster, beef with shallot marmalade and triple-cooked butter potatoes.
There’s live music too … Dr. Jill Biden booked Grammy-winning musician and composer Jon Batiste, in part because he’s from New Orleans, which Jill notes “has been shaped by both French and American culture.”
Could be a fun night, as long as Macron’s not offended by our fromage selection.
