The opening act of the night’s amazing line-up was a familiar voice from my youth, none other than Doug E Fresh himself. He performed all the songs I remembered from my high school days, got the crowd involved with what he was doing and showed us all how to do the Dougie. And he managed to have fun while he did it.

Even after we got back to the Capitol Hilton, we were in for a long wait, as our bus driver could not find a way through the parade roadblocks to the side of the city where we were waiting. The Congressional Black Caucus was having an inaugural ball at the hotel where we were waiting, and I caught a brief glimpse of the old-school rapper Doug E. Fresh in the lobby. Our bus finally arrived about 9 PM, and we got back to the hotel in Maryland with just a brief window of time to get to the Outback Steakhouse for dinner.
