This past weekend was a Channing Channing….Channing all over my Tatum kind of weekend. How do you ask….well…My sister Jennifer (Founder and Editor of Mami2Mommy) and I attended an exclusive mom blogger cocktail party in Washington, DC hosted by The Moms and Equinox Gym. This fun filled event took place at Mate, which included drinks and yummy sushi in one of Georgetown’s trendiest hot spots. After the private cocktail party, we headed to the theatre next door for the exclusive viewing of White House Down as well as hearing from the amazing cast and director – Channing Tatum, Jamie Fox, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Joey King and Director Roland Emmerich.
When I first heard that Channing Tatum, People’s sexiest Man 2012, was to be present at the premiere I couldn’t have driven fast enough to arrive in Washington, DC. After the cocktail party, we weren’t sure if the cast was going to do a meet and greet so we headed into the theater to be sure we got good seats. But as luck has it, it was my night where all “the stars lined up” for me. I managed to get on the white carpet and take pictures and shake hands with the stars. I was completely star struck and thrilled to have been able to get so close. The highlight for me, was when I was able to get a picture with Channing Tatum. Oh yes, this mama was beyond happy- I was floating on cloud nine! He was a true gentleman and was so sweet to take the time to snap apicture with me – I was smitten.
White House Down debuts on Friday, June 28th at your local movie theater and is rated PG-13. I enjoyed this action packed movie and it’s comedic moments between it’s main characters. It’s filled with explosive scenes, gun tooting bad guys and lots of action. You’ll find yourself laughing and cheering out loud while watching it. You will also enjoy the heroic efforts of the different cast members.
