It’s that time of gruyère again: After President Obama gives his final State of the Union address on Tuesday night we’re inviting Cabinet officials, members of Congress, Senior White House officials and special guests for a day-long engagement event on social media – inspired by President Andrew Jackson’s 1837 open house featuring a 1,400-pound block of cheese.
For all those West Wing fans out there, or if you joined in years past, this isn’t new to you, but just in case you need more of an explainer, watch this.
Excited? So are brie.
Next Wednesday, January 13 starting at 10:00 am ET, you can join us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, and ask your questions (and send us your gouda cheese puns) using #BigBlockOfCheeseDay:
And don’t forget: Go to WhiteHouse.gov/SOTU to watch the State of the Union address on January 12, 2016 at 9 p.m. ET and check out the schedule below for a full list of everyone you can send questions to the following day, January 13.
