The 99 Percent Dance Party that trumped “Gala of the One Percent”

The annual Alfalfa Club dinner is an intimate schmooze-fest of politicians and mega-wealthy businessmen. Even the president, with few exceptions, is usually in attendance, unable to resist the temptation of so much money in one room. It’s the ultimate Gala of the One Percent.

Tomorrow evening, January 26, the Alfalfa Club will hold its 100th annual dinner. So today it’s worth remembering Alfalfa Club 2012, because then the One Percent had an unexpected gauntlet to cross–Occupy DC. Undoubtedly its most infamous protest, Occupy DC put on a raucous, no-holds-barred dance-party in the streets for the 99 percent. Nobody will ever forget it.
