• Terrence Howard at McDonald’s Friday afternoon. The actor (sharp in a suit) was spotted coming out of the fast-food restaurant next to the Verizon Center carrying a bag of food; jumped into the back seat of a black SUV waiting at the curb.

• Jen Psaki being feted at the Source restaurant Thursday night. The departing White House deputy communications director (headed to private sector PR) said goodbye to pals like Valerie Jarrett, Al Hunt, Norah O’Donnell, Gene Sperling, Chuck Todd and Mike Allen. All had sushi, dumplings, and a special drink in Psaki’s honor called “the prime directive.”

(Correction: An earlier version of this story listed Jake Tapper among the journalists at the Psaki party. Tapper was not in attendance.)
