just another day in DC

Our interns' last day on the job is Friday, so the office decided to go out to a farewell lunch today. We never can choose between two Capitol Hill favorites, We the Pizza and Good Stuff Eatery, both owned by Spike Mendelsohn, so we split up to order and decided to eat inside We the Pizza. I thought about a Good Stuff burger and walked in briefly but couldn't ignore the call of We the Pizza's fabulous buffalo chicken pizza.

We all noticed Secret Service members on the sidewalk but figured that it was either Michelle Obama or the kids inside because they hadn't cleared out Good Stuff. But as we sat down at We the Pizza, my co-worker Anna came in with news that she had just shook Obama's hand! Apparently he was bringing in his financial team for a celebratory burger on helping reach a debt deal. Anna snapped the picture below. All the activity certainly made for an exciting lunch!

the street was full of people waiting for a glimpse of Obama coming out

A few weeks ago, on the same day as the Congressional baseball game, Meghanne and Caleb came through town, and we got to visit very briefly at Good Stuff. Meghanne and I both agree that the toasted marshmallow milkshake is one of the best things you'll ever put in your mouth. Hope the President got to enjoy one!

loved seeing Meghanne, if only for a few minutes!
