Uh oh, Ovi. It looks as if Mari Vanna, the new Russian eatery in Dupont, isn't just a place that Capitals players hang out. On Saturday night, Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins (who, like Alex Ovechkin, is Russian) stopped by for dinner and signed the restaurant's celebrity wall. Ovechkin dined there too, coming in Friday night after the Caps took down the Philadelphia Flyers. Ovi first visited the restaurant last month, tweeting happily about having Russian fare in D.C. The Capitals played the Penguins on Sunday.

Also over the weekend, former comedian Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., was spotted taking in the Louis C.K. stand-up show at the Kennedy Center Friday night, according to a report from Politico. He was seated in the fifth row.
