Hey isn’t that… “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, lawyer Justin Mikita, kicking off White House correspondents’ dinner weekend in Adams Morgan on Thursday night. Ferguson and Mikita, who married last year and design a line of bow ties with sales benefiting marriage equality organizations, were spotted out at Duplex Diner with Chad Griffin, CEO of the Human Rights Campaign. Our source says the group’s drink of choice was Ketel One vodka and soda.

On Tuesday Ferguson and his “Modern Family” co-star Eric Stonestreet appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to discuss their characters–Mitch and Cam–and their upcoming wedding bells on the show.

“I got married in July and then engaged to Eric in September,” said Ferguson, who will be attending Saturday’s dinner as a guest of ABC. “I feel like Elizabeth Taylor all of a sudden.”
