Governors Martin O’Malley of Maryland and Terry McAuliffe of Virginia were spotted having cocktails Friday night at Nopa Kitchen + Bar in Penn Quarter. The possible presidential aspirant and the newly inaugurated governor, both participating in the National Governors Association meeting in DC this week, were joined by BET founder Bob Johnson and Baltimore Orioles owner Peter Angelos for part of the time.

President Obama has been part of the NGA mix, too, though not at Nopa. He and the First Lady hosted a black-tie dinner for the governors and their spouses Sunday at the White House in the State Dining Room. Monday he was scheduled to meet with them again before the winter meeting wrapped up.

We don’t know what O’Malley and McAuliffe discussed, but we wouldn’t be surprised if O’Malley, who was slated to be on Face the Nation Sunday morning, was getting some friendly advice from McAuliffe, who may be new to the state house but has serious cred as a political adviser. Both governors went from Nopa to the Newseum for a dinner of Democratic governors.
