Obamas head to New York - no aerial tour of Statue of Liberty planned


(Read caption) President Obama and First Lady Michelle are having a date-night tonight in New York City. The plans are for a broadway musical and dinner. Hopefully, for the First Lady's sake, the president will choose a more romantic restaurant than the hamburger stand he opted for yesterday.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle are off to New York. The First Couple are having a date night with plans for dinner and a Broadway show in the Big Apple.

Thankfully, there's been a change in the White House Military Office or they could have unknowingly taken an aerial tour of the Statue of Liberty creating mass panic like what happened last month.

Perhaps to ensure minimal hysteria, the Obamas aren't even taking Air Force One. Well, technically they are (any airplane the president is on automatically turns into Air Force One), it's just not the big jumbo jet.


On tap for the evening? Choice of restaurant is unknown. As for the entertainment, they've got plenty of choices. If they really wanted to surprise the media, they could pop over to the BB King Blues Club and watch Buckethead shredding the guitar. The former Guns 'n Roses guitarist played with a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket on his head (thus the name) for years. Now he just opts for a plain bucket.

This choice is unlikely, however.

Come and Gone

Instead, reports are that the Obamas will attend a performance of August Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" at the Belasco Theatre.
