Obama Grabs Some Burgers -- PICTURES

US President Barack Obama (C) orders lunch at Good Stuff Eatery to share with staff members who worked on the debt negotiations, in Washington, DC, on August 3, 2011. Obama called on Congress Wednesday to break its recess to end a row which has partially shut the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and could cost taxpayers a billion dollars.

August 3, 2011

What a boss! On Wednesday, President Obama gathered up his hardworking staff who had survived the debt ceiling crisis and treated them to lunch at the Good Stuff, a local burger joint owned by chef Spike Mendelsohn – and a favorite of his wife. The president told some customers he saw on the second floor, "Michelle eats here all the time, but I don't get out." The lucky staffers included Office of Management and Budget Director Jack Lew, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs Rob Nabors, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Nancy Ann DeParle, Vice President Joe Biden's Chief of Staff Bruce Reed and National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling. They feasted on salads, milk shakes, burgers, and a large plate of fries for the group to share.
 
There was also one lucky customer who got a milk shake from the president. Andrew Parker, 11, was offered his choice of the several shakes on the administration’s table. “Choose any milk shake,” Parker said Obama told him. ‘I guarantee this table isn’t going to drink them all.”
