Barack Obama All-Star Dinner With Steph & Ayesha, John & Chrissy

Steph Curry and Barack Obama‘s bromance took another step forward with a dinner date … although Ayesha Curry and a couple o’ Legends were there too.

The Currys sat down with 44 for a serious power dinner Monday night in San Francisco at Ayesha’s restaurant, International Smoke. Her collaborator and chef, Michael Mina, posed with the smiling trio and shouted out Barack, saying … “No greater privilege than to cook for this man on Presidents Day. Thank you for the highest honor @barackobama!”

The star power at the dinner table didn’t stop there — John Legend and Chrissy Teigen showed up to make it a fab fivesome. Chrissy also shared a shot of herself enjoying a drink with Chef Michael.

You’ll recall, Steph set up a meeting last month in Washington, D.C. between his BFF and his Golden State Warriors teammates … who opted out of meeting President Trump to celebrate their NBA Championship.

As for why they’re all in the Bay Area … Barack, Steph and John are all taking part in the My Brother’s Keeper conference in Oakland, aimed at supporting boys and young men of color. It’s being hosted by the Obama Foundation.

Good eats, good cause … good times!

Golden State Warriors Meeting with Obama … And Nancy Pelosi

Breaking News

They boycotted #45 … but the Golden State Warriors got LOTS of love for #44 — with the entire team meeting with Barack Obama on Thursday before taking the court against the Wizards. 

Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and the rest of the squad met with President Obama at his Washington D.C. office … and then posed for a group photo afterward. 

Unclear what they all talked about — but after the game, Durant told the media, “It was amazing.”

Draymond described the meeting this way to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne — “A private team meeting, team event, it was good.”

Of course, the Warriors famously boycotted the White House after winning the NBA Championship in 2017 … after visiting Obama in 2016 and 2015. 

Durant previously told TMZ Sports, “We don’t f*ck with [Trump].”

They DO, however, like Nancy Pelosi … the Speaker of the House not only attended the Warriors vs. Wizards game on Thursday — she also met with players after the game, including Draymond. 

By the way, the Warriors won the game 126 to 118. 

Larry Fitzgerald Sinks Hole-In-One … In Round With Obama!!!

Breaking News

What’s better than a hole-in-one in a round of golf??

A HOLE-IN-ONE IN A ROUND OF GOLF WITH BARACK OBAMA!!!

Larry Fitzgerald knows that first hand …’cause the Cardinals superstar aced the par-3 13th hole at Seminole Golf Club in Florida on Friday in front of the former President.

Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte reports Fitz and Obama played a foursome at the prestigious course with club prez Jimmy Dunne and Obama Foundation board member Glenn Hutchins.

The story goes like this … Obama hit his tee shot first — striking the green about 20 feet from the hole.

Larry hit his tee shot next … and with an 8-iron from 162 yards out — HE JARRED IT!!!

Per Rosaforte … Larry was JACKED, screaming, “I’m playing with the President of the United States and I just made a hole in one! This is unbelievable!”

Larry is no stranger to success on the links … dude’s a reported 10 handicap and has hit the course with guys like Tiger Woods in the past.

But … bad news for Larry — the ace means drinks are on him!!!

Something tells us that’s a bill he won’t mind footing, though.

Barack Obama These Are a Few of My Favorite 2018 Things

Barack Obama had a busy year — especially when it comes to entertaining himself — because he’s got a looooong list of his favorite songs, movies and books.

The former Prez just shared 3 year-end lists of his 2018 faves, including 23 songs that feature tracks by J. Cole, Janelle Monae, Cardi B and 2 from Jay-Z — “Wow Freestyle” feat. Kendrick Lamar and “Apes**t” … which obviously features Beyonce.

Noticeably absent from his tracklist — Kanye West.

Barack also shares his top 15 movies of the year — which ranges from blockbuster hits like “Black Panther” to critical darlings like “Eighth Grade” and early Oscar buzz films like “If Beale Street Could Talk.” He also lists the Mr. Rogers documentary, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

But, the standout on his trio of favorite lists is in his book roundup, for which he breaks his alphabetical format to list his wife Michelle‘s book, “Becoming,” numero uno … and includes the note, “obviously my favorite!”

Another notable book includes Nelson Mandela‘s “Long Walk to Freedom” … but there are so many more, including several he says appeared on earlier lists.

Seriously, how does the guy find the time?

And, with all year-end lists, we have to ask … who did Obama snub?

Michelle Obama Thigh-High Shining … Really Shiny, Really High

Michelle Obama stuck to her motto during an event in NYC with Sarah Jessica Parker — when others go low, she’s going high … as in super thigh-high boots and a matching slit in her gown.

SJP was with the former First Lady Wednesday night at the Barclays Center to discuss Michelle’s best-selling memoir, “Becoming.” MO brought her couture A-game … draped in a gorgeous bright yellow dress and a pair of metallic gold knife over-the-knee boots from Balenciaga.

If you’re interested … they retail for $ 3,900. Happy shopping.

As great as Michelle looks here, “Becoming” is sitting just as pretty at #1 at the top of a lot of bestsellers’ lists, including the NYT and Amazon. She’s also No. 1 across the pond, having just become the first woman to sell the U.K.’s best selling Christmas book since J.K. Rowling in ’08.

It feels like a lifetime has passed since Mrs. O delivered her “go high” message at the Democratic National Convention, when Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination. 

Of course, she wasn’t referring to fashion then … but it clearly applies now.
