WASHINGTON President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are getting their anniversary date night after all — just a few days late during a busy re-election campaign.

The Obamas arrived at Bourbon Steak in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., on Saturday night for a dinner to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. The couple hit the milestone on Wednesday, the day of the first presidential debate in Denver.

During the debate, the president wished his wife a happy anniversary and reminded her "a year from now" they wouldn't be marking the occasion in front of millions of viewers. Republican nominee Mitt Romney congratulated Obama, joking that the debate stage was "the most romantic place you could imagine — here with me."
