Obama goes out to dinner after golf

By Star-Advertiser staff and the Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 09:54 p.m. HST, Dec 28, 2011

After a round of golf this afternoon, President Barack Obama went out to dinner at Alan Wongs's with  a group of friends and his sister Maya Soetoro-Ng.

The president's motorcade left Kailua at 7:30 p.m. and arrived at Alan Wong's just before 8 p.m. in a party of about 10 people. Alan Wong greeted the president and first lady with a hug as they arrived, according to a reporter who was in the restaurant.

Obama is a regular at Alan Wong's and has even had Wong cook for him at a White House function.

Earlier in the day, Obama golfed at the Koolau Golf Club, one of the more difficult courses on Oahu.

He arrived just before noon and stayed at the course until about 6:30 p.m.

Koolau is a bit of  a departure for the president, who typically plays at the Kaneohe Klipper course on Marine Corps Base Hawaii when in Hawaii. That's where he played his first two rounds of golf earlier in the trip.

On other vacations, Obama has also golfed at the Mid-Pacific Country Club, Luana Hills and at Olomana, all in Kailua not far from his vacation rental.

Obama played with Hawaii friends Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb, the same men he played with on Monday at the Klipper course.

Obama and his family are expected to remain in Hawaii until shortly after New Year's Day.

hey mr. president, as a former 'community organizer' I thought you would have come up w/this on your own, but I guess not... how about dining out at 'ordinary' places like zippy's, BCD etc, and, maybe donating the savings to UNICEF or some other charity? you are acting like you never lived the high life before, living it up on the tax payer dime and on the money you made selling books about smoking d oo pe in high school.... and, your guests include 'friends' caught in secks sting operations? what a joke on us taxpayers, what a fraud! see ya!

I wonder why Obama doesn't go out & buy himself a vacation estate like all of the other presidents have. He's a millionaire, he can afford it. Instead, he travels on the taxpayer's dime, he & his family fly around the country on separate planes, and he bogs up traffic here on a small island. He never stays at Camp David, the presidential retreat provided for him. Perhaps it's too 'rural' for his taste. It's pretty telling that this 'island boy' never came home to visit much until he became President and can stay for free in a million-dollar mansion by the sea.
