Branstad/Reynolds “Proof” party

Governor-elect Terry Branstad and Lieutenant Governor-elect Kim Reynolds will co-host a party at Proof in a couple of weeks.  Proof is a restaurant in downtown Des Moines which features North African and Eastern Mediterranean cusine.  Try the falafel.  Proof in the context of this restaurant is “the baking term for rising dough” and is not a reference to the calculation of how much alcohol is in an adult beverage.

The Tuesday, December 7 event is billed as a “pre-inauguration celebration” according to an invitation I’ve seen, but according to Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht: “The event at Proof is not related to the inaugural.”

There will be a separate committee to raise money and plan the inaugural.  The fundraiser at Proof next month “is to provide resources to our campaign committee to help fund our transition efforts, as the Legislature and governor did not provide an appropriation for the transition in the current year’s budget,” Albrecht says.

The December 7 event at Proof is scheduled to last 90 minutes (from 4:30 to 6 p.m.)  “Sponsorship Opportunities” of up to $10,000 are offered.
