The President Came to Town….for BBQ

10013581_10152589106421221_2754583914452299818_nToday the entire town was buzzing because President Obama was in town. He arrived last night around 7pm. He met with four local citizens at Arthur Bryant’s BBQ restaurant for dinner. It was the first time since Jimmy Carter was president that an american president ate at that establishment. He spent the night at Crowne Center Hotel, which was a big deal and then today he gave a speech to about 1000 folks at The Uptown Theater. Following his speech he made an impromptu stop at a coffee shop in Parkville, Missouri where he also met with local towns people and reportedly purchased a pound-cake to go. Apparently the Secret Service also paid a visit to Oklahoma Joe’s BBQ and purchased $1400 worth of BBQ for Airforce One. The question for me is, did he just come for the BBQ? Apparently no one has a real clear reason for the visit or what exactly the purpose of his speech was….hmmm. Kansas City really does have awesome BBQ but I imagine all the restaurants will ship. Especially to the White House.
