(update) Marking the day…..

My neighborhood hamburger stand–Z- Burger, on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington’s Tenley Town community– frequented by former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder threw an Obama birthday bash to mark Obama’s 48th birthday.

Owner Peter Tabibian gave away more than 1,000 burgers on Wednesday. In addition, 48 lucky customers got tokens for 48 hamburgers and 48 milkshakes. Tabibian is standing by his 9′ by 9′ Obama birthday cake –weighing 250 pounds–decorated with pictures of Obama.
