President Obama and Joe Garcia stop for Cuban burgers

After a $1 million fundraiser what are you going to do? If you're President Barack Obama why not a few Cuban hamburgers?

Post reception and dinner, Obama and congressional hopeful Joe Garcia -- a former executive director of the Cuban American National Foundation and former Obama administration Energy Department official  -- stopped at Calle Ocho's El Mago De Las Frita, famed for its Cuban burger with chorizo sausage and fries.

The president talked with a pair of diners, his sleeves rolled up as Enrique Iglesias' hit "I Like It'' played on the radio. He He introduced cook/owner Ortello Cardenas as the "magician," and ordered five of the burgers, joking that First Lady Michelle Obama -- who champions healthy eating -- shouldn't learn about the stop.
