Michelle Obama asks guests to eat before 50th birthday party
WASHINGTON (WKRC) -- First Lady Michelle Obama is getting criticized for party invitations for her upcoming 50th birthday celebration.
On the invitations, she tells her guests to EBYC, or eat before coming to the 'Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert' party. Many people are calling it rude and impolite and others calling it cheap. Etiquette experts say it is not proper to put such orders on an invitation because it sounds instructive and bossy.
Mrs. Obama will still serve food at the party, including wine, dips and desserts. She also asked guests to practice their dance moves.
The First Lady will celebrate her birthday on January 17 and reports indicate her party is a day later.
