A presidential date night

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

Lots of folks painting the town on Friday night here in New York City. Nothing unusual about that.

What's unusual on this night - and what makes this night different than all other nights, if I can be in keeping with the Passover spirit of the season! - is that one couple painting the town is the President and First Lady.

Hardly atypical for Pres. Obama to visit New York - although it's most often to raise money. But not tonight. He's giving a speech about civil rights (the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Bill) and then he and Michelle Obama are heading to Broadway to see "A Raisin in the Sun."

Date night in Manhattan! Like so many other couples.

We're there as well, although we'll give them their privacy of course, given the date-night part of it. We'll document what the White House allows to be documented, tonight at 11.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Lee Goldberg with his AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11, right after 20/20
