Like some other famous folks last week, ~Tracy Chapman~ stopped in at Piccino—yes, on the same day as Anna Paquin, Frances McDormand, and Joel Coen. Perhaps they were all talkin’ ‘bout a revolution together?

The fab and famous were really feeling the vibes at Piccino last week, because on the same day none other than ~Frances McDormand~ and her director husband ~Joel Coen~ were also spotted at the Dogpatch pizza spot.

~Anna Paquin~, star of HBO’s True Blood and the newest Pixar feature, Dinosaur, was spotted at Piccino last week. No word on if her famous vampire husband Stephen Moyer was also in attendance.

Noted tennis star, athlete, fashion designer, and all-around badass woman ~Serena Williams~ dined at Mission Chinese Food last Tuesday, and while she was there her phone was stolen. According to a post on Facebook, she sensed something was off about the fellow before he swiped her phone, and she chased him down Mission Street to recover her phone. Mashable even has a video of the incident! (Sidebar: who on earth would try to steal Serena Williams’s phone? Someone trying to win a Darwin Award, perhaps?)

Philanthropist and 1990s-era supermodel ~Christy Turlington~ enjoyed a meal at Swan Oyster Depot on Saturday night. According to SFist, she was in town running the San Francisco Marathon for her charity, Every Mother Counts. Werk.

A fab tablehopper reader wrote in to tell us that television and film actor ~Peter Strauss~ was spotted at Slanted Door on Monday night, along with his wife, actress ~Rachel Ticotin~. Ticotin, of such films as Total Recall and Con Air, is appearing in ACT’s current production of Ah, Wilderness!, so we may see even more of them around town.
