(WASHINGTON) CNN–President and Mrs. Obama tonight will host German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband  Joachim Sauer at a state dinner full of pomp and elegance.  The dinner will be held in the Rose Garden.  This isn't the first time the Obama's have hosted a state dinner outside.  The dinner for India's prime minister in 2009 was held in a white tent on the White House South Lawn.  So why not inside in the actual State Dining Room?  Well, it's like Thanksgiving at Grandma's house; it all comes down to space!  The State Dining Room only holds about 140 people.
