Heard on the Hill: Paging Don Draper

Speaker John Boehner rented downtown restaurant P.J. Clarkes for a fundraiser Tuesday night, allowing the Ohio Republican and his guests to have their Mad Men moment.

A love of P.J. Clarkes a popular watering hole for staffers, both on Capitol Hill and for Mad Mens fictitious advertising agency isnt the only thing Boehner and Don Draper have in common. Both men wear swanky suits and enjoy relaxing with a cigarette and a drink after a hard day at the office.

P.J. Clarkes flagship location in New York opened in 1884, and the restaurant has enjoyed a spike in popularity since being featured on the AMC drama. The D.C. outpost opened last year and has since played host to heavy hitters such as Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.).
