A 3,000-pound granite marker sits at the corner of Dorchester and 53rd Streets where President Barack Obama first kissed first lady Michele Obama, Aug. 16, in Chicago
The President first kissed his now-wife outside a Chicago ice cream shop – and there’s a plaque to prove it.
The owners of a Hyde Park shopping center installed the 3,000-pound granite marker this week with a plaque reading “On this site President Barack Obama first kissed Michelle Obama.” There’s a picture of the first couple and a quote from the president describing their first date.
The sweet smooch happened in 1989 when the president treated the first lady to ice cream at a Baskin-Robbins, which is now a Subway restaurant. The boulder sits in a flower bed next to the shopping center.
The Obamas will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary this October. They have a home in Chicago’s Kenwood neighborhood, not far from the shopping center.
