Up until last Sunday, I lived under the delusion that James Franco could not possibly be as awkward as his mirror makeout sessions and laser kitty Twitpics might suggest. But then the Oscars rolled around, and even the hot could not mask the painful truth. Congratulations, James Franco. You are officially the most awkward man alive.

But maybe DC will bring out the best in him. On March 31, the wonderful 826DC writing center will be hosting An Evening with James Franco at the Hotel Monaco, featuring the Academy Award nominee in the flesh. For $250, you can make eyes at Franco over dinner, while laying down a cool $1,000 will get you into a VIP reception with the man himself. Between your shared celebrity, wealth and ridiculously good looks, I’m sure you and James will find plenty to talk about. If not, you can always fall back on that age-old ice breaker, Charlie Sheen.

If you’re interested in attending the benefit, please contact Joe Callahan at or 202-525-1057. For more information about 826DC, please visit the site or read about it right here on We Love DC.
