Members of the public typically gather on the National Mall to watch the inauguration, but this year will be different – not only due to the pandemic but also because of the heightened security.
Officials have warned of potential threats and asked people to stay away from downtown D.C. and participate online instead.
For those choosing to watch the inauguration virtually, there are still plenty of ways to make the event more festive.
Here are some of the inaugural-themed drinks, meals and other goodies D.C.-area shops are offering this January:
Capo Deli, creators of the infamous "Fauci Pouchy" cocktail pouch are back in the game with a new "Biden Bubbly" champagne just in time for Inauguration Day.
Although the 750 ml bottle is now out of stock according to their website, mini bottles are available to order for $15.
Ice Cream Jubilee is offering a special inauguration pack in honor of one of President-elect Biden's favorite foods – ice cream!
With flavors like "Cuppa Joe", chocolate chip, cardamom amaretto – a nod to Kamala Harris' South Asian and Californian roots – and rose mimosa, what better way to celebrate the day? Plus, the Inauguration packs also come with coloring pages and stickers!
You can purchase a pack all January from one of three Ice Cream Jubilee locations in the D.C. area (Arlington, Navy Yard or Cardozo), or order online.
Pizza and ice cream – a timeless pairing. Pizza Paradiso and Ice Cream Jubilee teamed up to offer just that in honor of Biden and Harris. For every pizza purchased, you'll get one free serving of Ice Cream Jubilee's Vanilla Chocolate Chip.
Additionally, Pizzeria Paradiso is offering special root beer floats with Ice Cream Jubilee and Boylan's Root Beer.
Some of the flavors include "Biden's Back to Basics," "Harris' Spicing It Up Ginger Ale Float," the "Cuppa Joe Beer Float," and the "Banana Bourbon Ka(ra)mala Beer Float."
In an added bonus, Pizzeria Paradiso is Biden approved. He visited the shop back in 2016 while serving as Vice President.
The deal is only available while supplies last.
