What does Hollywood heartthrob Rob Lowe do when he comes to Washington? He dines with a group of women, of course, and in this instance the venue was Georgetown’s glam Bourbon Steak.

The dinner Saturday night, organized by Meet the Press executive producer Betsy Fischer, and included CNN’s Jessica Yellin, NBC’s Ilana Drimmer, Paige Ralston Fromer, Susanna Quinn, and Washingtonian publisher Cathy Merrill Williams. Lowe talked with his dinner partners about politics as well as life in Hollywood.
