First Lady, First Girls hits the slopes in Colorado


The line in bold is the meal that Rushbo is whining about as if it was a full slab of ribs and all the trimmings. Guess with all that money he makes he never patronizes any fancy restaurants where the "rib" is likely to be just that- one rib. Rest of the meal sounds pretty damn healthy to me.

VAIL — First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed locally grown fare at a Vail restaurant Saturday night before hitting the slopes of Vail Mountain early Sunday.

Obama and her two daughters, 9-year-old Sasha and 12-year-old Malia — together with some family friends — are spending the Presidents Day holiday weekend in Vail. President Obama did not make the trip.

The first lady went to Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village on Saturday night, dining on a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sauteed kale.


Early Sunday morning, Michelle and Sasha Obama showed up at the base of the Eagle Bahn gondola in Lionshead to hit the slopes. They had their passes scanned and headed up the hill.
