First Lady Michelle Obama, her daughters Sasha and Malia, and her mother Marian Robinson, toured Los Angeles last week and dined at some famous Hollywood establishments while they were on vacation.
Obama and her family had dinner at Lucques on June 13, dined in the private Jack Warner Room at Pizzeria Mozza on June 14, and ate lunch at Pink’s Hot Dogs on June 15. Gloria Pink, the co-owner of Pink’s Hot Dogs near the corner of Melrose and La Brea Avenue, said many celebrities often eat at the restaurant, but hosting a First Lady was a first for Pink’s.
“It was the honor of a lifetime,” Pink said. “We were so excited she was there.”
No information about the Obama’s trip was released prior to their arrival because it was a private vacation, but news about their visit was widely disseminated via Twitter.
Pink said members of the Secret Service arrived at around 12:45pm and told the staff that a very important person was coming to have lunch, but would not say who it was. Pink said the Secret Service agents placed an order, and then around 1:30pm, Obama and her family arrived. Michelle Obama had a Polish dog topped with mustard, relish, grilled onions and sliced jalapeños; while her daughters each had hot dogs with ketchup; and Robinson had a “Martha Stewart Dog”, which has relish, chopped tomato, chopped onion, bacon, sauerkraut and sour cream.
Pink added that the Obamas sat at a table on the patio with the other guests, but no one approached them. They stayed for approximately half-an-hour, and the other diners gave the Obamas a standing ovation when they left.
“They were very gracious,” Pink added. “For the First Lady to come to Pink’s was very moving, very touching.”
