Former President Barack Obama and his administration’s vice president, Joe Biden, appeared in public together on Monday, grabbing lunch at a bakery in Washington.
“Look who stopped by @DogTagBakery for lunch today!” the Georgetown establishment tweeted.
As part of its business model, the bakery focuses on providing disabled veterans, military spouses and military caregivers civilian work experience and lessons on entrepreneurship, according to its website.
A video posted online shows Obama following Biden’s lead in ordering a ham and cheese sandwich. “Give the boss one of those, too,” Biden is heard to say after the former president had mulled his choice.
Obama chatted with other customers and at one point struck a yoga pose when he learned that one woman aspired to be a yogi, according to the Washingtonian.
Initially rivals for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, the two ex-senators developed a tight working relationship and friendship after Obama tapped Biden to be his running mate.
The bond that was evident during their eight years in the White House spurred countless internet memes about their “bromance,” which seems intact post-presidency.
