Jon Favreau, Washington's Most Eligible Bachelor, Goes SOLO To State Dinner

Here's one surprise from Tuesday night's state dinner: Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, who People Magazine dubbed one of 2009's 100 Most Beautiful People, is attending the evening's festivities solo (despite rumors that he's dating Rashida Jones.) Washington Post news video intern tweeted as guests were arriving:

Jon Favreau DOES NOT have a date to tonight's state dinner!

Favreau brought his mom as his date to the Time 100 gala. White House reporter (and frequent tweeter) Phil Elliott added that Favreau wasn't the only one to show up to the state dinner, sans date.

several WH aides -- incl Robert Gibbs --didn't bring dates.
