Booker started out his calorie-soaked feast by grabbing some late-night grub, writing that he was finishing up dinner at Newark’s Andros Diner and heading out to make the rounds visiting The Garden State’s non-emergency call operators. Specialties at the 24-hour eatery include the “Andros Fries” (which consists of French fries topped with three cheeses and crumbled bacon, served with a side of ranch dressing) and the “Ironbound Burger” (a 10 oz. patty topped with Swiss cheese and bacon). No word on what Booker ordered.
But the pre-Sandy food tour didn’t end there. Just before 11:30 p.m., Booker, a staunch supporter of President Obama’s reelection campaign, wrote on Twitter, “I’m going to do a quick coffee and doughnuts run for the team here (Michelle ObamaMichelle ObamaOvernight Tech: Facebook's Sandberg comes to Washington | Senate faces new surveillance fight | Warren enters privacy debate Michelle Obama signs up for Snapchat Michelle Obama: 'It's time for us to come together' MORE forgive the junk food).”
Booker actually had to turn down an offer to add some free booze to his pre-hurricane menu. When one Twitter follower invited Booker to join them for a “hurricane special” beer at a local lounge, he responded by saying he was at a Dunkin' Donuts “treating [everyone] in here” to the sugary goodies.
