We hear that the Creative Coalition folks were a little on the late side when it came to arriving at their own ball Monday night, but they were all over town throughout the long weekend. The group of talent, which included Paula Abdul, Evan Handler, Alfre Woodard, Matt Bomer, Wayne Knight, Taraji P. Henson, Melissa Leo, John Leguizamo, David Arquette and more crowded into the brand new Dupont Circle restaurant Mari Vanna for a meal on Sunday night. On Monday before the ball, they chose Georgetown's Peacock Cafe.

Across town, pop star Ke$ha played a show at the 9:30 Club late Monday night, but on Tuesday she took time out to play tourist, tweeting a picture of the Capitol Building asking fans, "guess where I is." (Which irritated fans of good grammar everywhere).

And finally, late Monday night at the Electronic Arts after-party at the W hotel, rapper MC Hammer showed up. He was joined by inaugural regulars Rosario Dawson, John Legend and Pharrell at the party.
