    Former President Barack Obama accompanied by former first lady Michelle Obama leaves the National Gallery of Art in Washington on March 5. Obama returned to Honolulu today and was spotted at Buzz’s Lanikai.

Coming off a string of high-profile meetings, former President Barack Obama made an unannounced return to Hawaii Monday.

Just three months removed from his last official holiday visit as president, Obama was spotted dining at Buzz’s Lanikai Monday night.

Earlier in the day, Obama met with tech executives at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.

On Friday, Obama and wife Michelle had lunch with U2 frontman Bono and his daughter Jordan Hewson at the Upland restaurant in New York.

Two days later, Obama had lunch with billionaire Warren Buffett and his daughter, Susie, at the Happy Hollow Country Club in Omaha, Neb.

Correction: Former President Barack Obama had lunch with billionaire Warren Buffett and his daughter, Susie, in Omaha, Neb., over the weekend. An earlier version of this story, and in Tuesday’s print edition, misidentified Susie as Buffett’s wife. Buffett first wife, Susan Thompson Buffett, died in 2004.
