Forever our First Lady! In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same. Michelle Obama’s memoir, “Becoming,” will hit bookstores on Nov. 13. This means you will have a week to order this masterpiece, delve right in, and be able to discuss over our brunch @ BK9.

To cancel, you must send me an email indicating your cancellation request. IMPORTANT: You MUST arrive on time as this restaurant doesn't seat incomplete parties. ***
Please walk with cash including small bills - $10's, $5's and $1's to pay the balance at the table, or be prepared to pay your balance via Venmo. As noted on the restaurant's website - A 20% Service Charge will be added to parties of 6 or more.

Restaurant bills will be set up as one bill for drinks and one bill for food. BOTH bills will be split equally among those who order.
