Malia Obama Takes A Weekend Break In Aspen (Photo)

Former first daughter Malia Obama took a Presidents Day weekend break in Aspen, Colorado, from her internship at Weinstein company in New York.

Obama was spotted having lunch at the ski resort on Feb. 19 with some high-profile friends (photo below).

Malia started her film development internship at the Weinstein company after moving out of the White House in January, but it was her weekend vacation that caught interest this time, as a photo showed her smiling in a red, white and blue USA cap with roughly a dozen pals at Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro on Highland Mountain, reports the Daily Mail.

Pictured sitting with the former first daughter are some well-known lunch mates, including: Elizabeth, Steve and Holden Tisch, children of Oscar-winner and Super Bowl Ring owner Steve Tisch, who produced "Forrest Gump" and is the New York Giants chairman; Audrey Kotick, daughter of Activision CEO Bobby Kotick of "Call of Duty" fame; Brice Lourd, nephew of powerful CAA talent agent Bryan Lourd, Carrie Fisher's ex; Tassilo von Furstenberg, grandson of fashion giant Diane von Furstenberg; and fashion designer Monique Lhuillier, who regularly worked with former first lady Michelle Obama and who took the Instagram photo.

The exclusive Cloud Nine ski-in, ski-out restaurant has only two seatings daily at noon and 2 p.m. and features the tradition of spraying champagne, which guests near Obama indulged in. There are no photos of Obama drinking anything but water at the restaurant.

A group of guests sprayed more than 200 bottles of $125 Veuve Clicquot champagne on the holiday weekend, racking them up an estimated $25,000 bill.

Later that day, Obama and friends reportedly stopped by famous nightclub Bootsy Bellows.

Obama has been keeping busy in her post-White House life and has not shied away from making political statements, despite her father stating that she has no interest in going into politics. At the end of January protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline during her trip to the Sundance Film Festival, notes USA Today.

She is taking a gap year after finishing high school and will attend Harvard University in the fall.
