The National Press Club's Silver Owls are sponsoring the annual Spring Hoot on Wednesday, May 31 at 6:30 p.m. This will be a lively evening during which author John A. Farrell will talk about one of the most controversial presidents in American history – not Donald Trump, but Richard Nixon – and the Malarkey Irish band promises to live up to its motto: "The more you drink, the better we sound."

Farrell's book, "Richard Nixon: The Life," has been on the best-selling lists of both The New York Times and the Washington Post. Farrell will explain the difficulties in finding new material and then writing about a man who has been the subject of several previous biographies.

Malarkey, a group of eight professional women, has performed at Irish pubs in Arlington and at the White House during the Christmas season, according to Carol Guensburg, a writer-editor for the Voice of America, and keyboarder for Malarkey. The group recommends that you "put on your dancing or toe-tapping shoes" for lively jigs, polkas, waltzes and more.

Eat, drink, be merry, see your friends and dine out for days on the tidbits you will learn from Farrell and Marlarkey.

Best of all, the tab is only $35 per person for a wonderful evening plus whatever you spend at the bar. Don't forget to get a stamp from the front desk for free parking at the G Street Garage.

Please make your reservations quickly as this event will sell out. Reservations can be made below, or by contacting The National Press Club's reservations department right now at 202-662-7501 or
