At a little after 12:30pm Sticky Rice sent out the following tweet:
VIP on hst today during lunch. No hst parking for now.Since that time Twitter has been all abuzz with speculation as to the identity of the mystery guest. Reports have come in that the Secret Service was on site scoping out the area earlier this week. A reader pointed out that Obama is scheduled to have one of his Dinner with Obama events tonight at an undisclosed restaurant. President Obama previously dined on H Street at Boundary Road (414 H Street). The First Lady has visited Sticky Rice (1224 H Street). For those experiencing Biden fever, it's not him (he's still in Wisconsin).
