From Politico --- May 8, 2010:
THE OBAMAS had a date night last night at Komi, Washingtonian magazine's #1 restaurant for the past two years. Pool Report from Joyce Jones of Black Enterprise:
'People gathered on a few corners near WH on foot and on Segways ... Arrived at restaurant at about 7:08. ... The first couple emerged from Komi at 9:13 and were greeted by the crowds that had waited for two hours to see them. But by then, it was dark and black vans blocked most of the view. Still, they cheered, screamed and clapped. ... It appears that the diners in Komi gave them a standing ovation as they left. Mrs. Obama was carrying a wrapped bouquet and both were wearing huge smiles.'
