— Rob Lowe dining at NoPA Kitchen in Penn Quarter Tuesday night. Lively group that included his wife Sheryl, lobbyist Jack Quinn and his wife Susanna (with whom Lowe partnered on the as-yet-unseen reality pilot “Potomac Fever”), and Fox News’s Ed Henry and his wife Shirley. In town for a family visit, we’re told — Sheryl, a jewelry designer, was also hosting a show of her wares to benefit Children’s Hospital. Meanwhile, the former “West Wing” star paid some visits on Capitol Hill Wednesday to Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy and said some hellos at the White House briefing room as well. (Updated 4 p.m.)
