December 7, 2010

Newcomer ~TWENTY FIVE LUSK~ had some special guests over the weekend: on Friday evening, #51 and linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, ~Takeo Spikes~ dined there with a lady friend. While trying to keep a low profile, the back collar of his shirt kept him from flying under the radar… it was embroidered “T Spikes.”

And then on Saturday evening, ~Metallica~ dined with their wives to celebrate Kirk Hammett’s birthday. Rock!

A tablehopper reader (and fellow diner about town) spotted ~Joe Montana~ with wife Jennifer at Cotogna for lunch on Friday December 3rd.

Another sighting of ~Manu Ginóbili~ of the San Antonio Spurs basketball team rolled in—he was spotted having dinner with teammate ~Tim Duncan~ at Waterbar last Monday night. Of their win over the Warriors, partner Pete Sittnick suggests, “It must’ve been the oysters!”


On Saturday night, a friend of mine was very happy to give up his table to ~Steve Wozniak~ at El Metate, who was “standing around looking lost.” The Woz also pulled up to Blue Bottle Coffee—Mint Plaza on his Segway with a lady friend, who was reportedly on a matching Segway (here’s a pic of him inside Blue Bottle from Twitter user @cherlynsf).

A tweet announced ~Salman Rushdie~ was at a dinner at Zuni Café last Thursday, along with Davia Nelson (Kitchen Sisters).

A tablehopper reader let me know that ~Guy Fieri~ came in to Broken Record in the Excelsior last week to film an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. (I was wondering what was all that yelling I heard from across the city last week… He must have tasted the oxtail polenta.)
