Weekend Odds & Ends

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

No doubt you've all read about interesting things taking place around Denver already. This weekend has seen protests, receptions with elected officials and of course parties.

Senator Obama has officially hit rock start status as right after the "Arnold Palmer" on the menu is a "Obama Pama" rum drink. It's a tropical drink - maybe a nod to his Hawaiian roots.

And finally, a set of custom-made Obama earrings spotted at the Host Committee Welcome Reception on Sunday night.
