Grateful Dead member ~Bob Weir~ dined at Copita on Cinco de Mayo. He and chef-owner Joanne Weir aren’t related (that they know of), but apparently have a bit of a connection: stoner pranksters have been calling Joanne for years to ask if “Bob’s home.” Apparently Bob had the enchiladas and said they were the best he’s ever had. The long lost not-relatives even posed for a cute photo.

~Keanu Reeves~ was spotted at the bar at Dosa on Monday, according to a tweet. For some reason, after he left, all of the restaurant’s spoons were bent and had to be replaced.

Former Police front man ~Sting~ was spotted at Waterbar on Thursday. He was with one of his daughters, and they enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Grigio (sadly, it did not contain a message), oysters, and fish and chips.

Fabulous star of screen and stage, ~Alan Cumming~, dined at Foreign Cinema last week. According to Facebook, he enjoyed the french fries and housemade mustard.

Champion golfer ~Rory McIlroy~ was spotted leaving Tadich Grill last Tuesday night with a group of other fellows. We’re hoping they enjoyed some nice classic dishes, like perhaps a wedge?

The very fabulous ~Isabella Rossellini~ dined at Dosa on Sunday night, according to a tweet. Swoon. She was in town for the San Francisco International Film Festival, where she did a live performance of her Sundance series Green Porno.

Famous actor ~Richard Gere~ dined at Pesce on Sunday night with a group of nine. The Pretty Woman star and outspoken supporter of a free Tibet was in town for a film screening at the San Francisco International Film Festival. The group ordered salads, and shared meatballs, a whole branzino, and martinis. They also enjoyed the Peru Is Burning cocktail, and a few bottles of Müller-Thurgau from Alto Adige. The group was reportedly extremely nice and polite.

Actress and singer ~Jennifer Love-Hewitt~ dined at Waterbar on Monday night. Alas, she was not with a party of five, but was accompanied by her husband, Brian Hallisay, and their young daughter, Autumn (the couple is expecting a second child later this year). No word on what they ate, but we’re sure they couldn’t hardly wait for it.

Rock ‘n’ roll royalty and lilac-coiffed former Fashion Police cohost and Dancing with the Stars contestant ~Kelly Osbourne~ was spotted at Lolinda on Friday March 27th. She was with a group of about 10 friends, and according to Instagram they were celebrating a friend’s bachelorette weekend. In fact, it looks like the friend is her makeup artist, which is fun. While there, they enjoyed cocktails, cava, and lots of small dishes. Congratulations to the bride!

Seems Mr. Vice President ~Joe Biden~ hit a few spots around town with his motorcade, stopping at The Plant Cafe on Saturday for pancakes (reportedly “with a lot of syrup”). The day before, he hit up The Melt. Eater confirms he munched a classic grilled cheese with tomato, tomato basil soup, and a chocolate shake.

Oscar-winning director, screenwriter, and producer ~Alexander Payne~ recently dined at Spruce. Unfortunately we don’t have any details about his visit, but he is known for his work on films Sideways, Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, The Descendants, and Nebraska.

The brand-new The Yard in Mission Rock hosted rock band ~The Mowgli’s~ last Wednesday before they played a sold-out show at The Independent. The band enjoyed beers on the patio on the bay, and even snapped a photo.

Well, this is fitting, since Game of Thrones is rather, well, EPIC: star ~Peter Dinklage~ was spotted at EPIC Roasthouse on Saturday night.

Perennial Starlet favorite ~Joe Montana~ and his wife Jennifer were spotted at Waterbar last Tuesday, where the ran into Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. Apparently the pair had some things in common, and even posed for a photo together.
