President Obama's visits to Los Angeles are pricier to attend than a trip to the Four Seasons bar near Beverly Hills, hookers not even included (yeah, we're talkin' to you, U.S. Secret Service agents).

For his fund-raising dinner party May 10 at George Clooney's home in the hills above Studio City, you will pay $35,800 a head.

Unless, that is, you're a winner:

The Obama campaign launched a contest that will give you a chance to attend the event for free.

Two tickets are up for grabs for the event. The campaign is asking for a donation (the minimum is $3) to enter the contest, but the fine print says you can do it for free. The camp tweeted this yesterday: An email about the contest sent to supporters even gave Clooney top billing, stating, "Want to meet George Clooney and Barack Obama - at Clooney's house?" Hail to the chief. [@dennisjromero / djromero@laweekly.com / @LAWeeklyNews]
