pho 18 funny

Back in May CNN reported:

“President Barack Obama took a detour on his Asia trip Monday when he dined with celebrity chef and adventurous eater Anthony Bourdain in Vietnam.

After finishing up at Hanoi restaurant Bún chả Hương Liên, Bourdain tweeted that he had picked up the $6 tab on a shared “bun Cha dinner.”

And Pho 18 rolled with it!!  Anyone try it?

Kristin (and many others) tweeted us last night:

“@PoPville loud helicopter has been hovering at a total standstill over Dupont area for over 10 minutes- super creepy”

N Wyre replied:

“there was a training exercise scheduled for yesterday… Not sure if this is it. 20 mins over our heads is long enough!”

MPD confirmed the military exercise though they said operation (not sure if that’s just semantics):

“My understanding from our command center is that it is a military helicopter conducting some sort of operation. They should be gone shortly.”
