After hosting two packed parties at last summer's political conventions in Tampa and Charlotte, viral news site Buzzfeed is once again going to be a presence on the party scene, this time over White House Correspondents' Association Dinner weekend.

But instead of pre-gaming with the news outlet, or drinking with them after, Buzzfeed's party will carry on during the dinner -- broadcasting President Obama's and Conan O'Brien's remarks at their event, taking place at the Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Adams Morgan.

"We weren't invited to have a table at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year, but BuzzFeed's not really one to miss a party so we figured we'd throw one ourselves," Buzzfeed's Senior Press Director Ashley McCollum told Yeas & Nays. "No WHCAD tickets, no problem. And we'll have pedicabs to bring Dinner guests over a few blocks for the definitive pre party to the after parties."

Geico is sponsoring the pedicabs, which promise to get guests from the Washington Hilton to Buzzfeed's BBQ-themed fete in 15 minutes or fewer.
