Obama Hits Up Ben's Chili Bowl

This just in from The Washington Post's Reliable Source: Soon-to-be-prez Barack Obama visited Ben's Chili Bowl this afternoon around 1 p.m. What!?

I was walking to the gym just a few blocks away at the time, instead of enjoying a chili dog for lunch, like any sensible food writer who lives in the neighborhood should have been doing on a rainy Saturday. Damn.
