Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii: Baskin-Robbins Where Obama Worked

Future President of the United States dipped ice cream here while in high school. He has also said he worked construction and made deli sandwiches back in the day, but this sticky venue is where he began troweling in an All-American foundation for his presidency, the cherry on top of his political career. BTW, Obama doesn't like ice cream.

Baskin-Robbins Where Obama Worked

There's no sign that says he worked there. However, if you ask any of the employees they all know he did. Obama learned to play basketball across the street, lived with his grandparents a few blocks away, and was also born not too far from here.
