SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – During their visit to the Bay Area, First lady Michelle Obama and her daughters surprised patrons at a popular restaurant in San Francisco’s Chinatown on Friday.
A CBS 5 crew spotted the first family eating dinner at R&G Lounge located on Kearny Street. The restaurant’s owners declined to discuss what her party ate during their visit.
Earlier on Friday, Mrs. Obama spoke at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park as part of a fundraising event for her husband’s reelection campaign.
According to pool reports, about 350 people attended the event, which was expected to raise at least $175,000. The first lady was introduced by California Attorney General Kamala Harris, an early supporter of the 2008 Obama campaign.
On Saturday, the first lady is scheduled to be in Alameda on Saturday at a commissioning ceremony for a new Coast Guard vessel.
Last month, President Barack Obama also made a stop for food in Chinatown. On February 16th, the president ordered takeout at Great Eastern Restaurant on Jackson Street. Mr. Obama was visiting San Francisco for a series of fundraisers.
