Three football players for the 49ers were spotted at Twenty Five Lusk on Saturday night: ~Aldon Smith~, ~Glenn Dorsey~, and ~Antoine Bethea~ were joined by their ladies, and apparently spent more than $6,000. They generously tipped their server $1,000 too.

Scientific wonder ~Neil deGrasse Tyson~ was spotted at Flour + Water last Tuesday. He was with an entourage and they were reportedly making lots of black hole jokes. Har.

~Barry Bonds~ was spotted dining at Waterbar last Thursday. Perhaps he enjoyed the the, ahem, naturally raised, hormone-free (pork) cheeks?

Everyone’s favorite celebrity-couple-to-love (and spread rumors about), ~Beyoncé~ and ~Jay-Z~, were in town playing a concert at AT&T Park (perhaps you heard it?). While here, they dined at Tosca Cafe both nights, in the private dining room. You know, the one behind the partition. This makes sense, as Scoop points out, as Jay-Z is an investor in Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield’s The Spotted Pig in New York.

They also lunched at Boulevard with Blue Ivy, and ordered more than 100 sandwiches from The Melt for their crew of 130 at the ballpark, after their final show.

Everyone’s favorite celebrity-couple-to-hate, ~Kim Kardashian~ and ~Kanye West~, dined at Cotogna separately on Thursday, according to SFist. Then they dined together at Quince’s curATE on Saturday after Kanye’s set at Outside Lands. Uh-huh, honey, both of them, along with 30 friends, bought out the space for a little after-hours noshing and partying. We’re sure it was klassy.

The inimitable Sir ~Patrick Stewart~ was at Outside Lands this weekend, where he enjoyed the Chocolate Gold Rush at Humphry Slocombe. Because he is the classiest, most awesome guy ever, he was wearing a shirt with Shakespeare on it and a jaunty cap.

Captain Picard isn’t the only one who likes ice cream—warehouse managers do too. ~Craig Robinson~ of The Office was also spotted at Outside Lands, at the Three Twins ice cream stand. He was enjoying a Madagascar vanilla ice cream wafer sandwich.

According to a tweet from a Twitter pal, redheaded comedian ~Carrot Top~ was spotted at SPQR on Saturday night.

Chef Srijith Gopinathan of Campton Place has been consulting with actor ~Manish Dayal~ on his new film, The Hundred-Foot Journey. Apparently, the actor worked hard to portray a chef in a convincing way, and he and Gopinathan had many conversations about Indian food and kitchens. For more information on the film and Dayal’s work preparing for the role, check out this interview in Vanity Fair.
