Prince Harry, 25, and girlfriend Chelsy Davy, 23, gave the surest sign yet that they are back on when they were spotted out on the town over the weekend, People.com reports.

The pair, who have been quietly seeing each other for several weeks, were out in London’s trendy Notting Hill district, where they visited the club Beach Blanket Babylon. The couple split earlier this year.

Simon sues

Singer Carly Simon is suing Starbucks Corp., saying the coffee company’s now-defunct music venture didn’t adequately promote her 2008 album, dooming the record before it even was released, Associated Press reports.

The singer, whose biggest success came during the 1970s and ‘80s with hits including “You’re So Vain” and “Anticipation,” is seeking unspecified damages related to the release of the 14-track “This Kind of Love” in April 2008.

In a statement issued Monday, Starbucks said it met all its contractual obligations and even extended the amount of time it promoted the album in New York and Boston.

The album reportedly sold just 124,000 copies.

Steppin’ out

Maurice Hines, tap man extraordinaire and certainly no stranger to Washington, returns to the District Tuesday for a master class for aspiring hoofers (with an advanced background in jazz, hip-hop and tap) from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. at Howard University, 2455 Sixth St. NW, and from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, 3500 R St. NW. Space is limited.

On Wednesday, Mr. Hines, who appeared in the cast of the 1981 Tony-winning musical “Sophisticated Ladies” — which featured his late brother Gregory — will hold open auditions beginning at 1 p.m. at the Lincoln Theatre, 1215 U St. NW, for Arena Stage’s revival of the show next spring. Mr. Hines will star in and direct the revue, which highlights the tunes of the great Duke Ellington.
