How do you throw the ultimate birthday party? Invite more than 500 of your closest friends to the National Aquarium's Marine Mammal Pavilion. Make sure that everywhere they go in the building, a variety of food and entertainment awaits. Then have a surprise guest of honor appear. So went the aquarium's 20th anniversary reunion for its friends and founders. The big surprise came in the form of former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor William Donald Schaefer - wearing the same turn-of-the-last-century bathing suit and carrying the rubber ducky he sported in the photo that went 'round the world when the aquarium opened 20 years ago. Master of ceremonies Rick Dempsey tried to speak Donald Duckese to the guv, then complimented his "sexy little legs."
