December 8, 2009

Now, this is what I call some star powah: ~Jennifer Garner~ and ~Ben Affleck~ dined alone at ~GARY DANKO~ on Sunday night. They were reportedly very nice. (Personally, I keep holding out for a story when a star is really nasty and demanding.)

A couple tweets announced ~Julia Louis-Dreyfus~ was at Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

tablehopper reader Patti M. spotted ~Thomas Keller~ having lunch at ~LA MAR CEBICHERIA PERUANA~.

Super hottie ~Shemar Moore~, originally from SF, stopped by ~1300 ON FILLMORE~. He was in town to celebrate the holidays with his mom who still lives in SF. He played Malcolm Winters in The Young and the Restless, was a former Soul Train announcer, and plays FBI special agent Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds.

~Adam MacDougall~, the keyboardist of The Black Crowes (which had five sold-out Fillmore concerts last week) was spotted at ~FLORIO~ for dinner before the show on Friday.

Metallica drummer ~Lars Ulrich~ and his actress girlfriend Connie Nielsen ate at Tiburon Grill at The Lodge at Tiburon—they were with friends and some kids. A few young’uns in the restaurant came up to Lars to have him sign autographs, but were too shy to ask, so Connie told Lars about it and he turned around and chatted with them and signed some autographs.

~PICÁN~ restaurant in Oakland’s Uptown district hosted quite the slew of special guests: singer, dancer, and actress ~Rita Moreno~ dined with her husband and two friends, and in the sporty category, ~Randy Winn~, outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, was in with his family celebrating his wife’s birthday. And then ~Devean George~, forward/guard for the Golden State Warriors was in with a friend. Looks like playing ball works up quite the appetite, because Devean had two entrées: the Corvina sea bass and the black pepper-crusted salmon.

I’m impressed a tablehopper reader knew what ~Ken Burns~ looked like. Reader Zach B. spotted him at ~NOPA~. Burns reportedly “has the hair of a thirteen year old and he definitely seemed to be enjoying his dinner with a huge smile on his face.”
