An Almost Riot-ously Good Time At HuffPo Party
The sheer number of boldfaced names flooding into Arianna Huffington’s inaugural eve ball last night created a near riot.

Early arrivals like Ben Affleck and Diane von Furstenberg hid under coats and behind other guests in an attempt to avoid the red-carpet circus. But the scene inside made it worth running the gauntlet. Overlooking the Capitol Building and parade route, anticipation for today’s swearing in reached a fever pitch as the assembled masses did a midnight countdown—complete with noisemakers, hats, and hugs—to a new era in Washington politics.
