The very first thing that Barack and Michelle Obama did on their vacation in Asheville, NC today was hit up 12 Bones Smokehouse, a celebrate local 'cue joint that the first couple has a special fondness for, having dined there while campaigning back in 2008. For lunch the POTUS and FLOTUS chowed down on BBQ ribs, mac and cheese, corn bread, baked beans and greens, all washed down with sweet tea. The two immediately followed their southern food feast with a rigorous mountain hike in a nearby park. See — it's all about a healthy balance, people.
