Glee star Jane Lynch was spotted Sunday and Monday at Georgetown’s Baked and Wired. According to a member of the staff, on each occasion she ordered a coffee drink—this morning a latte. Lynch didn’t order any of the shop’s signature pastries, “but we gave her some things,” says the employee. Why would Lynch be in DC? We’re going to make an assumption here, but it feels like a good guess: probably because the 15th annual Mark Twain Prize for Humor is being presented tonight at the Kennedy Center, and the event always draws lots of comedians to town. The honoree is Ellen DeGeneres, who, before her talk show fame, made her name as a comic. Also spotted in Georgetown over the weekend was actor Gabriel Byrne, who had Sunday lunch at Cafe Milano.
