Plaque Marks Scene Of Obamas' First Kiss

CHICAGO, (UPI) —  The owners of a Chicago shopping center have placed a historical marker to mark the spot where the Obamas shared their first kiss in 1989.

The plaque, placed on a 3,000-pound granite boulder near the entrance of the Dorchester Commons shopping center, features a photo of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama with a quote taken from an interview the president gave to “O, The Oprah Magazine” in February 2007, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

“On our first date, I treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed her, and it tasted like chocolate,” the plaque reads.

Jonelle Kearney, a spokeswoman for Mid-America Asset Management, which manages the shopping center, said the company decided to put up a plaque for the Obamas about 2 1/2 years ago.

“It’s a marker for the community, for posterity and tourism, too,” she said.
