President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama headed out of the White House this evening to celebrate First Friend Valerie Jarrett’s birthday at Washington’s Restaurant Nora, a local expensive eatery.
It’s America’s FIRST CERTIFIED ORGANIC RESTAURANT, according to Restaurant Nora.
It’s been around for many years. Kind of a traditional destination for nicely scrubbed Washingtonians.
Jarrett turned 57 Thursday. Dinner lasted more than four and a half hours, with the Obamas arriving at 6:58 pm ET and departing the restaurant at 11:39 pm.
