December 29, 2009

Just last night, ~Ben Harper~ and wife ~Laura Dern~ popped into luella with some friends for a late Monday night supper. They were reportedly very nice and gracious, and walked back to their hotel through Russian Hill.

~Joan Collins~ was at ~A16~ Sunday night, and looking good. She ordered the calamari, tuna/favas, and a small gnocchi. According to this Twitter post from curiousmikie, she was also rocking a leather-belted mink (meow).

Hottie ~Peter Krause~ was spotted at Clock Bar.

~Michael Emerson~, who plays Benjamin Linus on ABC’s Lost came in to ~DESTINO~ for dinner. He was a pleasant guest who allowed the server a photo with him, and signed a plantain leaf for the restaurant.

~Metallica~ was dining at ~KOKKARI~ on Friday the 11th, the night before their show in San Jose. The whole band and their families/entourage (about 25 people) were seated in the main dining room (behind the wall of the bar). My spy says some lamb chops were spotted at their table, and “lots of wine tastings were flowing as well (most were pretty heated, as all rockstars should be!).”

~Mötley Crüe~ came into ~ORSON~ for dinner.

~Carlos Santana~ and a friend chose Christmas night to dine at Piazza Pellegrini. The two (suited up in bibs) had the restaurant’s popular cioppino. At the end of his meal, he was gracious enough to pose with fans for a photo. 

Ozumo Oakland reports that ~Tré Cool~, the drummer for the band Green Day, dined at the bar on Monday night. He sipped martinis and ate items from the robata grill.

Reader Rachel C. was dining at Osteria Stellina in Pt. Reyes Station on Christmas Eve and spotted ~Hector Elizondo~ with a female guest, assumed to be his wife. He was reportedly quite handsome.
