As most of you probably know, President Obama and family are enjoying some time off in his childhood home of Hawaii, much to the joy of the White House — and despite snippy criticism from the Mainland. And I too am here just outside of Honolulu spending time with my family, who visit here each Christmas for decades now.
One of our favorite Hawaiian restaurants is Alan Wong’s — a CJD fav, if you ever are in Honolulu. Apparently it is an Obama fav too.
We were at Alan Wong’s this week — and when we got there, we were told that our table was no longer available. We’d have to split our large group across two tables. There was a VIP — and that was where they were putting him. It ended up the “him” was, in fact, President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, a contingent of others — and security, of course.
My family and friends, being the good, security conscience American’s that they are, saw me tweeting that we were dining with the President — and they all said, ‘Don’t put the location!’ Of course, outside the restaurant, there were a dozen black SUVs and scores of cops, but… I hope I didn’t give anything away.
