Bill Murray’s waistline is expanding by the hour during his latest trip to D.C., with the famous comedian eating up everything from hoagies to fancy French food.

The Stephen Starr eatery Le Diplomate tells Eater he requested a tour of the kitchen to meet the chefs—which ended in an impromptu dance party.

Murray, who’s stuck around town after handing over the Mark Twain prize for humor this past weekend, was still craving more D.C. eats as of Thursday. He headed to Capitol Hill for the “Restaurant High” event, catered by Taylor Gourmet, and wasted no time throwing on an apron and posing with culinary director Jacob Hunter.

The Ghostbusters star’s pre-Halloween weekend visit to is looking pretty epic (stay tuned for more sightings), but D.C. is not the only city the foodie and funny man has guest starred in as of late:

  • This summer, Murray and his brothers signed on to officially open a restaurant, Murray Bros. Caddyshack in their native Chicago area at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont. They’re slating its debut for sometime in December.
  • He headed to wine country this summer and dined at Acacia House, just outside downtown St. Helena inside a swaggy new hotel. His chef/admirer for the meal was meat master Chris Cosentino.
  • In Brooklyn, he crashed the opening night party for Cecconi’s and salivated over its tony views and lobster spaghetti.
  • And in 2015, he was table mates with TV host Anthony Bourdain at Husk in Charleston, S.C.
