December 1, 2009

Writer ~Barbara Kingsolver~ (The Poisonwood Bible and recently, The Lacuna) was at Sociale for lunch. She had the beet and goat cheese salad and brick chicken (good choice!).

The legendary quarterback ~Jim Plunkett~ came in for dinner at EPIC Roasthouse with his wife. They both had filet mignon, and he played paper football field goals* at the front desk with EPIC manager Bryan Philon. (Bryan won.) Jim also predicted a Raiders win.

*When you fold a piece of paper into a triangle, and one player uses their fingers for the goalposts while the other tries to flick the “football” through the posts.

Can’t resist the other ~Fabio~ sighting that came in last week, this one from tablehopper reader Jenn M.: “Fabio, the Italian male supermodel, was dining at Houston’s today for lunch with a group of other body-builder type men. Pretty funny! He still has shoulder-length hair although it’s now closer to brown than blonde.” Way to stay with a look…
