Hey isn’t that… comedian Joel McHale, who apparently did not skip town the day after his White House Correspondents’ dinner performance at the Washington Hilton. Instead, McHale and company, which included his wife Sarah Williams, their eldest son, McHale’s two brothers, and his mother-in-law, hit the town on Sunday like regular old tourists. Forget the Allbrittons’ annual brunch; the McHale clan had sights to see!
Their first stop was the Old Ebbitt Grill just a block away from the home of the man McHale got the go-ahead to roast the night before. The party of nearly 11 people showed up in T-shirts and jeans just after 1 p.m. and ordered the double crab cakes. Then the group headed east to the International Spy Museum near Chinatown where McHale and his son, Eddie, tried –and failed–to diffuse an atomic bomb in the “Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains” interactive exhibit.
And the family time didn’t end there. At around 7 p.m. on Sunday night, McHale and crew arrived at the Blue Duck Tavern at the Park Hyatt in West End “in good spirits,” chatting with other diners and a few of the chefs at what Tom Sietsema called the “Kate Upton of Washington restaurants.”
