The three lucky winners of Obama for America's fifth online 'Dinner with Barack' sweepstakes will dine on Monday evening with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, according to the President's official schedule. The dinner, promoted by the campaign as a "date night" with the President and his wife, will be at 6:15 PM "at a local restaurant," according to the White House.  Earlier on Monday, Mrs. Obama will host her first-ever Kids' State Dinner at the White House.

The First Lady has previously attended one contest dinner, the third, which was held at DC's Boundary Road restaurant last March.

Entries for the fifth contest closed on June 26th. During the promotion period, OFA released a video to woo supporters to enter, starring the President and Mrs. Obama discussing their own first date.

"Take tips, Gentlemen," the President said to the camera, winking, during the 1:21 minute video.

“It was a cool date, actually. We spent the whole day together,” Mrs. Obama said.

The President ate dinner with the four winners of the first 'Dinner with Barack' contest in October of 2011, at The Liberty Tavern in Arlington, VA. The second dinner contest was fulfilled with a luncheon; the President took his four winners to DC's Scion restaurant on January 6, 2012. The President enjoyed a cheeseburger and fries with the winners of the 'Dinner with Barack IV' contest on June 15th, when OFA took over DC's Lincoln Restaurant.
