Sam Kass, who serves as a personal chef to the Obama family and an ambassador for the "Let's Move" initiative, will get married to MSNBC host Alex Wagner on Saturday at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Politico has learned, as did CNN's Brian Stelter, after he unsuccessfully tried to reserve a two-top for dinner. Few details have been made public, but the restaurant can hold 260 people, so while the whole thing may be small and low-key, we're guessing it won't be. Oh, and President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will also be there, much to the chagrin of millionaires with seaplanes in the general vicinity.




No big deal.

The Journal News notes that Michelle Obama has visited Blue Hill at Stone Barns twice, once in 2010, with a bunch of students and U.N. dignitaries, and another time for a fund-raising brunch in 2012. This will be the president's very first Stone Barns experience, however, among the sheep, the four-seasons greenhouse, the open fields of celtuce, and extremely captivating agricultural scenery. The president and first lady did have dinner at Blue Hill in Manhattan back in 2009, which everybody says is nice but just not the same.
