Where To Watch Obama's Inauguration

obama_gap.jpg We told you where to watch the results roll in, we live blogged through the night to keep you company - now the historic inauguration day looms. The We Are One concert is rolling on as we type, building the anticipation, and you can follow everything, step by step, on the ground with our cousins over at DCist, online. But can we join in here in London, on Tuesday 20th January? Wait for it... yes we can:

At the Tricycle Cinema, Kilburn the party starts at 4pm with cheerleaders, pretzels and beer. Tickets £15/16 with all proceeds going to their education programme. Book now 020 7328 1000.

The Democrats Abroad Inaugural Ball is sold out, sorry but there's still room at Kensington's Chicago Rib Shack. Tickets are £60+ VAT for the event that runs from 4-10pm, including food, beer, music and the essential footage in a quintessential American atmosphere. There are also tickets available for the 20109 Change party at IndigO2 hosted by the IBBAMO Trust.

If you're not up to forking out quite as much cash, book a table at your local TGI Fridays - the chain will be toasting the new President transatlantically at 9pm our time - aiming for the biggest worldwide Obama celebration going.You'll also get a free "button". We think this is a badge. Or turn up at Prohibition bar in Bishopsgate for another lower key prospect. If you can skive off work and be there around 4pm you can dose up on half price cocktails and feed up on ribs while the whole thing happens on the tellybox.

Or you could try your luck at Yates Wine Bar in Leicester Square. No really.

Or, at this late stage, we reckon if you can catch at table at the Cheers Bar, Smollenskys or - if you're a tad dolled up - the American Bar at the Stafford, you're going to find like minded company and flavors (sic) of home, you ex-pats, so get those flags out, take some pictures, stick 'em in the Flickrpool - capture the moment wherever you are.
