The Sink now has a "P.O.T.U.S. Pie" in honor of President Obama's visit.

President Barack Obama's visit to Boulder Tuesday was a quick one, but remnants of his stay -- specifically in the form of food -- will linger a little while longer in some of Boulder's favorite restaurants, The Sink and Rush on the Hill.

Here are the deals they've put into place to honor Obama.

P.O.T.U.S. Pie at The Sink, 1165 13th Street, Boulder

A Sink pizza -- complete with pepperoni, sausage, green pepper, black olives and onion -- previously known as the "Sinkza," was renamed "P.O.T.U.S. Pie" after the Prez stopped in for a quick fix. Sink general manager Ricardo Ramos says the already-popular Sinkza, which he calls one of the restaurant's "traditional best sellers," has been even more in demand since it was renamed.

"When the President was in here, we found out the toppings on our traditional Sink pizza were the toppings he liked the most," Ramos says. "So I thought it would be the right thing to do -- to change the name of the pizza."

Obama's visit to the Sink came as a surprise to the restaurant staff. "It was amazing," he says. "We knew he was in town but we didn't know he was going to stop by, so when we found out he was coming, everybody was ecstatic." He describes Obama as a pleasant customer who "connected with everyone in the restaurant."

Wow, I'll bet the security leading up to, during and after that visit left the traffic for miles in the area a giant CF.  Just like he did with his two visits to Ray's Hell Burger.  A mess of epic proportions AND making a joint already overrun impenetrable due to the hordes of tourists.


Yes, and I'll bet the increased business just left these small businesses drowning in profits (and think of the increased taxes! geez), not to mention the wear on the sidewalks due to all of that foot traffic; carbon-dioxide spewing humans frequenting these places with their devastating greenhouse gases; increased t-shirt sales requiring additional cotton growing at environmentally disastrous proportions; tweets and texted photos bombarding the airways with their frequency hoarding, and the epic exchange of infected DNA due to all of the hand-shaking and such.

It's a jungle out there.  Best to hunker down in the basement with a bag of Cheetos and a short-wave radio.
