WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama observed their 22nd wedding anniversary a day late with a celebratory dinner Saturday night in the city’s Georgetown neighbourhood.
For their anniversary dinner they picked Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons Hotel, about a six-minute drive from the White House.
Shortly after Obama arrived at the restaurant, more than 100 protesters calling for justice for Michael Brown, the shooting victim in Ferguson, Missouri, marched down M Street in what appeared to be a previously planned demonstration.
Before their date, the president spent four hours playing golf at Andrews Air Force Base. Obama and his wife travelled separately on Friday, prompting a delayed date night.
Both alluded to their anniversary Friday at their respective stops. “I might not even see him today,” Mrs. Obama told a Boston political gathering. “Twenty-two years she’s been putting up with me,” her husband told steel workers at a plant in Princeton, Indiana.
