October 3, 2006

Ben Stiller was in town filming his new movie at luella this week—he was reportedly very friendly to everyone, and was quite charmed by Rachel and Ben de Vries' 3 1/2-year-old daughter. Stiller spent much of his downtime playing "superheroes" and "dinner party" with her, building forts at the hostess stand and twirling on the sidewalk with her. Looks like little miss told Stiller she wanted to speak to the director about being in the movie, and landed a scene, awwwww. (Hey, if you want something, you just gotta ask, right?) Stiller even came by after the day of shooting to introduce the luella team to his dad, Jerry.

Giada De Laurentiis from the Food Network was sighted filming a segment at the Ferry Building Marketplace.

Tablehopper reader Brent was pleasantly surprised to be buying shallots alongside Tracy Chapman at Bi-Rite this past week.

Now, this is some serious regal action: the King of Sweden was at the Redwood Room last weekend.

A reader spaced on telling me, but suddenly remembered seeing Ted Allen from "Queer Eye" a couple weeks ago at the Sky Lounge at Medjool.
