Actor Rob Lowe seemed to be showing up everywhere in Washington this week.

On Tuesday night, he and his wife, Sheryl, had dinner at the new NoPa Kitchen + Bar with friends Jack and Susanna Quinn and Ed and Shirley Henry, a restaurant rep reports.

On Wednesday, Sheryl, a jewelry designer, hosted a trunk show at the Quinns' home that benefited the Children's National Medical Center. Meanwhile, Rob and his son Matthew visited Capitol Hill to see Matthew's old boss, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. The "Parks and Recreation" actor also posed in the Capitol Rotunda with a group of World War II veterans and posted the pic to Twitter.

Additionally, Lowe sent White House reporters into a frenzy when he showed up at the White House press basement, again with Fox News Channel's Ed Henry.
