From WH official:
"Tonight, the First Family attended the 80th birthday celebration for Vernon Jordan at the Farm Neck Golf Club. There were approximately 200 guests in attendance.  
"The President and First Lady have known the Jordans for over twenty years, and were grateful to have sat with Ann and other guests this evening.
"Toasts were offered between courses. Ann jordan offered the first toast, welcoming guests and honoring her husband. President Obama then toasted Vernon extolling his kindness and generosity. The President told attendees that Vernon's wisdom and enthusiasm are rare qualities.
"Third and fourth toasts were offered by President Clinton and Vickee Jordan, respectively.
"Other guests tonight included Morgan Freeman, Brian Roberts, Henry Louis Gates, Ken Chenault, Valerie Jarrett, and Capricia Marshall. Tonight's menu included salad, surf and turf, and birthday cake."

We already have a lid so that's it, folks. It's been a pleasure being your pooler and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
