Break out your Gucci loafers, because Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) is coming to one of Georgetown's preppiest bars.
Pawlenty is hosting a fundraiser on Friday at Gin and Tonic, Fritz Brogan's Glover Park tavern, which, while little more than a dance floor inside, attracts a cute, young, preppy crowd that lines up around the block from Thursday to Saturday nights.
The event is being billed as "Late Night with TPaw," and it kicks off at 9 p.m.; $50 gets you an open beer and wine bar. An email from Brogan also noted that there would be an after-party sponsored by the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) following the Pawlenty event, but didn't provide details about it.
The host committee includes three young GOP members of Congress from Minnesota, Reps. Michele Bachmann, Erik Paulsen, and John Kline, as well as a handful of well known Republican lobbyists-about-town.
