Happy Birthday Mrs. Obama!
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 08:44 AM by bigtree


President Barack Obama treated first lady Michelle Obama to a surprise birthday party at a Washington restaurant known for its commitment to organically grown food.

Surprising the birthday girl at Restaurant Nora in Washingtons Dupont Circle neighbourhood were her mother Marian Robinson and friends, including Attorney General Eric Holder, White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Jocelyn Frye, who is a domestic policy adviser to both the president and first lady.

Mrs Obama walked into the restaurant in a dark, knee-length frock. President Obama was dressed casually with no tie.

She spent part of her last birthday on a train from Philadelphia to Washington, as her husband made his way to the Capitol to be inaugurated.

Mrs. Obama will turn 46 on Sunday . . .

It may have been a surprise to her, but Saturday night's birthday dinner celebration for first lady Michelle Obama at the high-end Restaurant Nora in Washington was in the works for two weeks.

They drank Spottswood sauvignon blanc. And after nearly four hours of partying in an upstairs private room at Nora, the president took photos with the wait staff and waded through the kitchen, shaking hands with the cooks and waiters and thanking them for their efforts to fete his wife, who turns 46 on Sunday.

The party guests included the first lady's mother, Marian Robinson, Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, Sharon Malone, White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, Susan Sher, the first lady's chief of staff, and the Obamas' good friends from Chicago, Eric and Cheryl Whitaker.

It wasn't hard for unsuspecting patrons -- including this reporter -- to figure out who, too, was dining at Nora on Saturday. All at the restaurant were mildly interrogated, wanded and frisked upon entering by Secret Service agents. A bevy of black SUVs, a police car and agents with ear pieces hovered outside. And by the time the Obamas left, just after 10 pm, a crowd of bystanders gathered on the corner and sang "Happy Birthday" to Mrs. Obama.

Surprise! When President Obama brought First Lady Michelle Obama out Saturday night, she thought it was just another date night -- until cheers erupted from the restaurant.

2. Why would the first lady be surprised that a night out with the President took two weeks to plan?
Give her some credit.
