Yesterday, Alonzo Mitchell from Ohio Homecoming posted to Facebook about how he was selected to take President Barack Obama to dinner while the president is in Cleveland this week. Mitchell asked his friends what three people should join him and where they should take President Obama.
Some of our supporters suggested Mitchell take President Obama to Bridgeport Cafe. (We agree!)
This morning, Cleveland.com posted an article about how Mitchell’s plan was an April Fool’s joke meant to stimulate discussion about young people are the people with whom local and national leadership should be meeting.
From the article:
Recommendations came pouring in. Among them: Bridgeport Cafe. Blue Point Grille. Zanzibar Soul Fusion.
While it’s unfortunate that the story was a farce, we are humbled that our supporters would recommend Bridgeport Cafe as a place to take the president to dinner. Thank you to all of you who suggested the cafe!
