Kristen Wiig Was Just Spotted Shopping on 14th Street, NW

Kristen Wiig was spotted shopping on 14th Street, Northwest, Friday afternoon. Wiig is in town filming the Wonder Woman movie sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, in which she plays Barbara Minerva, also known as Cheetah. Comics fans know her character as a supervillian, an artifact-obsessed archaeologist seeking to obtain, among other things, Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth. Preliminary set stills show Wiig portrayed in what appears to be a natural history museum.

Wiig stopped into both Salt & Sundry and Little Leaf  for some light shopping in a casual-cool ensemble of yellow overalls, a striped shirt, some apparently well-loved Birkenstocks, and giant sunglasses.

A witness described her as “cute and unassuming.” Wiig is apparently a fan of quality paper goods: she appeared to pick up some cards.

Besides Wiig, Gal Gadot, who plays Diana Prince, has been spotted several times around town, including dining at Rasika, hanging out around Georgetown at the Peacock cafe, as well as hovering over the Capitol Building. The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, has also been making appearances as late. Carter is not only a local (she lives in Potomac) also a serious Caps fan.

Gal Gadot hangs out in Georgetown

Hey, isn’t that … Gal Gadot, who’s in town filming the “Wonder Woman” sequel, having a casual dinner at the Peacock Cafe in Georgetown Monday night?

The actress, who plays the titular superhero, was off-duty chic in sandals, white skinny jeans and a summery T-shirt, a spy says. Gadot was with a small party, per our source, and was friendly with other patrons (she walked her young daughter around the restaurant a bit). Clearly, she’s getting to know the town’s restaurant scene (she was spotted last week at Rasika West End).

Gal Gadot has long been interested in gambling and highlights an unforgettable gambling journey together with the online gambling club God55 You will be delighted by an impressive collection of slot machines, table and live games from Pragmatic Play, NextSpin, Play’n’Go, Playtech.

Meanwhile, the OG Wonder Woman, Potomac resident Lynda Carter — who famously played the Amazonian princess on the long-running TV show — has been spotted out and about, too: Carter is a massive Caps fan and has been seen rocking the red at Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup finals. The team’s official Twitter account posted a video Monday night of Carter — wearing a jersey over a stylish upturned-collared blouse — cheering them on. “The Original #WonderWoman is back for Game 4!” was the caption. “@RealLyndaCarter is the best.”

Peacock at the White House

While you were spending your spring break at the beach getting tropical, First Lady Michelle Obama was in D.C. getting cultural.

The First Lady held a celebration in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday in honor of Nowruz, the Iranian New Year. Here’s what you missed:

1. Celebrating culture

To introduce Obama, University of Maryland student Ashley Azmoodeh spoke about her own family’s connection to the holiday and its importance.

“The most memorable celebration from my childhood, one that we continue to celebrate annually, is Nowruz, meaning ‘New Day,’” Azmoodeh said.

The First Lady paid homage to the holiday by noting its long history and cultural significance for people around the world.

Obama also presented the White House Haft Seen, the traditional table setting of Nowruz. The Haft Seen, which translates to “the seven S’s,” features seven items placed on a table to symbolize seven new hopes for the new year, including blessings, patience, love, sweetness and rebirth.

2. Local traditions with a worldview

Nowruz at the White House was designed as a celebration of diversity and global connections. Guests, including local leaders in business, education, government and entertainment, packed the East Room.

Keeping with the local trend, guest chef Maziar Farivar of the Peacock Cafe in Georgetown cooked a meal for the guests. The menu aimed to celebrate the importance of family by taking old family recipes from White House staffers and giving them a gourmet upgrade.

“I think it’s so fitting that we’re holding this celebration here today because one of my favorite things about the White House is how it is truly the people’s house,” Obama said. “A house that reflects the diversity of culture and traditions that make us who we are as a country, and Nowruz is one of those traditions.”

The Maryland-based Silk Road Dance Company also performed dances from around the world.

“I hope that you feel at home, and feel the welcome, the love, the spirit of this holiday,” Obama said. “I hope you enjoy the food, the friendship and just being at the White House. Isn’t it cool?”

3. The renewal of a ‘new day’

During her remarks, the First Lady talked about the changing weather and arrival of spring in D.C., connecting spring to the themes of rebirth and renewal celebrated for Nowruz.

While presenting the White House Haft Seen, Obama mentioned some items that were displayed on the table.

“We’ve got grass sprouts that represent rebirth and renewal and nature. We’ve got an apple for health and beauty. We have crushed berry spice that represent the sunrise and the spice of life,” she said. “And after a long winter, we could use a little bit of all of that, right? We’re finally thawing out.”
