President Obama Had Lunch at Chipotle Today

Our sushi-loving President walked to Chipotle for lunch today, per a posting on Twitter. Obama doesn't leave the West Wing all that often, but he's recently been using coffee breaks and lunch outings as opportunities to meet local constituents and stay in the news.

According to NBC News, the President scheduled today's lunch with "several working parents" before attending the White House Summit on Working Families. Obama has been working to convince employers to adopt family-friendly policies — something he says is good for both businesses and their employees. This move coincides with the President's stance on minimum wage, a policy that will have far reaching effects on the country's hospitality industry.
