Shopping center commemorates first Obama kiss with plaque


Chicago has commemorated the location of President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama’s first kiss, with a plaque, CLTV reports.

The plaque sits on a 3,000 lbs. boulder, notes New York’s Daily Intel:

Today, after two and a half years of planning, a 3,000-pound granite boulder topped with a bronze plaque bearing a photo of the couple, the story, and the phrase “On this site, President Barack Obama first kissed Michelle Obama” was unveiled at the corner of Dorchester Avenue and 53rd Street in Hyde Park. A spokeswoman called it “A marker for the community, for posterity and tourism, too.” And one of embarrassment for Sasha and Malia.
