Condolences to anyone trying to make a Valentine's date in Penn Quarter. Obamas are at Minibar.—

Whatever we think about Barack Obama, we won’t begrudge him for taking his wife on a nice date for Valentine’s Day. Heck, we’ll even say that he has great taste in restaurants for selecting José Andrés’ renowned “Minibar.” However, we can’t help but point out the fact that his date night probably ruined Valentine’s Day for a lot of other couples. You see, “Minibar” is smack in the middle of DC’s busy Penn Quarter neighborhood, and date night for the Obamas requires shutting down a city block and bringing rush-hour traffic to a screeching halt.
