DC is where it’s at.
While President Barack Obama and the first lady have the members of Congress over to the White House for a picnic this evening, we’ll just have to sit and wonder exactly what we’re missing out on. We know what you’re thinking:
“Jack?! You’re not gonna be at this picnic??”
We were surprised too. When we finally got ahold of Biden, he “claimed” our invitation was “lost in the mail”. Oh well. We’ll sadly resign ourselves to an afternoon alone with this party sized bag of WOW! potato chips we were gonna bring.
We can’t help but wonder what kind of picnic President Barack Obama will have on the South Lawn. We gathered our smartest interns and came up with some possibilities.
- Chicago Hot Dog Buffet
- Catered Italian Fiesta Pizzeria flown in from Chicago
- Hawaiian-Chinese Buffet
- Bowl after bowl of Michelle Obama’s Homemade Chili

Chicago Dogs from a Chicago Man
Complete with yellow mustard, chopped white onions, sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato wedges and pickled sport peppers.
Barack’s a Chicago man, through and through. Why shouldn’t his esteemed guests be treated like Midwestern royalty?
Barack’s Favorite Thin-Crust Pizza
Face it- Chicago is just as famous for their pizza as they are for their hot dogs. A man knows that NY is the place to go for a slice of thin-crust, but any pizzeria that gets the Presidential Seal of Approval has gotta be something to brag about.
As a Hawaiian native, Barack grew up among Asian-inspired cuisine, therefore Chinese food was among the first dishes he learned how to cook.
Hell yeah! We’d keep any fortune cookie the President of the United States handed us. Pass that Pineapple Fried Rice, hoapili.

Is there anything better than your wife’s chili? Not that we can say (when she’s within earshot).
