Obama's "Alice in Wonderland" Party During the Recession

In an article by the New York Post, the Obamas hosted an "Alice in Wonderland" costume ball with Johnny Depp and Hollywood director Tim Burton in 2009. The party was so over the top that George Lucas sent the original Chewbecca to mingle with invited guests.

The party was kept very quiet for fear that the public would find out about the extravagant party. With unemployment hovering at 10%, banks needing to be bailed out and Obama's health care reform causing heated protests at town hall meetings, the Obamas decided that they needed to have an blow-out party on the taxpayers.

The party was invitation-only and held in the East Room and State Dining Room of the White House.

The fruit punch was served in blood vials.
