President Obama Set for Two Dinners at Brentwood's Tavern

He's baaaack, this time for two fundraisers Thursday at the popular Brentwood eatery.

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.

Serious traffic nightmare! Let's hope whatever he's doing is worth us sitting in gridlock for hours on end.
