President Barack Obama has slated not one but two back-to-back reelection fundraisers at the trendy on San Vicente Boulevard Thursday evening.
It's only $38,500 to join the president for dinner, according to one CNN report. The second dinner was added after the first sold out, according to CNN.
Obama is no ; he's a motorcade veteran of Barrington Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard.
