    UPDATE: More Details Emerge...

    First Lady Michelle Obama is planning to show off the city's southside when she takes NATO spouses on a tour in May.     

    Mrs Obama plans a stop at the Gary Comer Youth Center on South Ingleside, two blocks from the apartment where she grew up, the White House said in a statement.

    The Center offers young people extracurricular activities and support to help prepare them to graduate from high school, and continue on to pursue college and meaningful careers.

    Mrs Obama will also host a spouses dinner that same evening -- May 20 -- while "a working dinner" is planned by the president at Soldier Field.
