On Tuesday night, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will continue his longtime governing strategy of having parties, this time hosting the prince of Belgium at the Getty House. Prince Philippe will join his ministers to exchange gifts with the outgoing mayor; he, along with another 400 Belgians, is visiting California to push business ties.
Philippe could become king in July, according to reports. Villaraigosa will become unemployed at about the same time.
