~Anthony Bourdain~ has continued his tour of the Bay Area. According to various sightings on Facebook, he made a stop at Miss Ollie’s in Oakland, where he interviewed Black Panthers leader Bobby Seale for an episode of his show that will air in three months or so.

A tablehopper tipster also let us know they spotted him on Divisadero while film crews were at 4505 Burgers & BBQ. Then, according to a tweet, he hit up Chinatown classic R&G Lounge. Mmmm, salt-and-pepper crab.

And this just in: Bourdain was also spotted by a tablehopper reader at Juhu Beach Club, good choice!

Remember those rad Pride ice cream flavors at Three Twins Ice Cream we told you about last week? Well, imagine their surprise when the stunning ~Laverne Cox~ showed up to scoop her very own namesake flavor, Laverne Cox’s Orange Is the New Black. You gotta check out the gorgeous photo on Twitter. Lookin’ amazing, as always.

Famously irascible television personality ~Anthony Bourdain~ was spotted filming at famously irascible Embarcadero restaurant Sinbad’s yesterday. Yes, Sinbad’s is still open, despite that ongoing dispute with their landlord. And now it’s going to be on television. Arrrrrrrrr!

Bay Area sports hero ~Joe Montana~ was spotted at Forgery, according to a tweet.

Rock stars ~Florence and the Machine~ enjoyed a late dinner at Izakaya Rintaro recently according to a tweet. Apparently, a mutual friend of the band and chef-owner Sylvan Mishima Brackett recommended that they check it out,. It was a mellow night, so they went mostly unnoticed.

Smashing Pumpkins leadman ~Billy Corgan~ was spotted at the chef’s counter at Nopa on Friday night. Our tablehopper reader says he was there with a friend. They started their dinner with a flatbread, and then he enjoyed the pork chop as his main dish.
