Posted May 28, 2009 at 11:00am

Online guides to planning a Nancy Drew party abound: NDSleuths.com even provides instructions (menu, games and more) for a party built around one of the most beloved of her books, “The Hidden Staircase—; while PartyPop.com suggests a bat mitzvah based on the girl sleuth.

And according to our spy, the Washington power couple appeared notably lovey-dovey at the screening, which was sponsored by the National Press Club Board of Governors. Mitchell snuck into the theater after the lights went down, greeted Greenspan with a quick kiss, and the couple leaned against each other throughout the film, our spy said.

Aw.
