Peyton and Eli Manning spotted around town this week

Hey isn’t that… The Brothers Manning — Cooper and his famous little bros, Peyton and Eli — dining with family and friends at Joe’s Stone Crab on Thursday night? Our tipster says the party of eight came in through the power spot’s private entrance, but they were hardly incognito.

Restaurant goers gathered in Joe’s bar area to try to catch a glimpse of the pro athletes on their way out, and the QB brothers (two-time Super Bowl champ Eli plays for the Giants and Super Bowl XLI winner Peyton plays for the Broncos) took time to snap photos and sign autographs. Aw, isn’t that special?

And the party didn’t stop there. On Friday night, another source says, Peyton, minus his brothers and plus one unidentified guy pal, hung out in the outdoor patio area at Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons in Georgetown. Bottles of Veuve Clicquot were flowing, we’re told, as the guys were joined by a group of ladies.

No word on why the Mannings were in town, but our best guess is Peyton’s hanging around to support his bestie Tiger Woods, who was here for the Quicken Loans National golf tournament benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation.
