Have dinner with former VP Joe Biden for $75

He's the keynote speaker at the DFL party's annual Founders Day Dinner.

It'll cost you at least $75, but you could eat dinner in the same room as Obama's partner in meme.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has just been announced as the keynote speaker at the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party's 12th annual Founders Day Dinner.

The dinner is a yearly fundraiser for the DFL party. It'll be held in the Hilton Minneapolis ballroom on Dec. 9, from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

The DFL party calls Biden an "American hero" whose "distinguished career embodies our progressive values."

"Vice President Biden has dedicated his entire professional life to serving our country – and he has done so with an unwavering moral compass and a spirited sense of humor. From fighting for a stronger middle class to curbing gun violence, he has been at the forefront of the most critical issues of our time. We are excited to welcome the Vice President to Minnesota," a news release from the party says.

Tickets are $75 for general admission – and get a lot pricier from there for preferred seating and other special perks.

But part of your ticket ($50) is refundable through the state’s Political Contribution Refund program.

Biden's better half (his wife, Jill – not Obama) just gave a speech in the Twin Cities earlier this month.
