Some famous faces are popping up on Ben's Ali Way alley in Washington, D.C. Popular restaurant Ben's Chili Bowl has commissioned a mural that showcases a few of its star patrons, including President Barack Obama and comedian Bill Cosby.
Local artist Aniekan Udofia completed the colorful homage on the alley's brick wall this week. In addition to Obama and Cosby, radio personality Donnie Simpson and the "Godfather of Go-Go" Chuck Brown are also featured on the mural.
Ben's Chili Bowl, located at 1213 U Street, is famous for its chili dogs, half-smokes and milkshakes, so much so that Washington Mayor Adrien Fenty took Barack Obama to the eatery in January 2009.
