If you’re near the Washington Hilton Hotel, there’s a ticket available for tonight’s White House Correspondents Dinner, also known as #nerdprom.

C-SPAN’s live coverage really is worth a look, if only to hear C-SPAN host Peter Slen and People’s J.D. Heyman announce the handful of red carpet arrivals they actually recognize (such as Instagram sensation the Fat Jew) and even critique a dress or two.

Not attending: ABC’s chief political analyst Matthew Dowd, who is instead preparing to appear as a panelist on “This Week” Sunday morning.

Just admit you couldn’t get a date … no one’s judging here.
