This sighting is gonna be hard to beat (cough): ~Larry Flynt~ was spotted at Quince with his wife—and let’s just say the gold-plated wheelchair (with red velvet pillows) was hard to miss. He was in with his wife to meet Phil Bronstein, and was reportedly seen complimenting co-owner Lindsay Tusk on the décor.

On Thursday night, ~Danielle Steel~ came in to Wayfare Tavern, looking “amazing, classy, and regal.” (To be expected, after her comments in this Wall Street Journal profile.) She had pea soup, and my spy says she finished her Wayfare “Le Grand” burger. Atta girl.

Local treasure ~Armistead Maupin~ was spotted dining at the Grand Café with a group of gentlemen (his musical, Tales of the City, is currently running at the nearby ACT). He had the escargots and duck entrée with a glass of the Mumm “red label,” and observers said it looked like he was having a great time.


~Tim Lincecum~ came in to Tacolicious last week, and according to a tweet, “Apparently the man tips as well as he pitches (which is pretty f**king great).” Lincecum also seems to be one of those people who tips so his receipt is a round number. Freaky.

On Sunday night, 11 Yankees players came in for dinner at Ame, all dressed up and dapper in suits. ~Derek Jeter~, Jorge Posada, and CC Sabathia dined at a separate table from the group and drank some old Bordeaux. The rest of the team was reportedly very upbeat while enjoying their dinner with tequila shots, and there were plenty of gawkers in the full dining room. (The team is staying at the St. Regis.)

And on Monday evening, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Curtis Granderson, and Robinson Cano were all spotted having a drink at the Downstairs Bar at W San Francisco after their game against the Oakland A’s.

Meanwhile, ~Alex Rodriguez~ (A-Rod from the NY Yankees) was in for dinner at Twenty Five Lusk with five guests last night (Monday May 30th). Alex ate the NY strip steak (seems appropriate) with steamed vegetables, and they all shared salmon pastrami, tuna sashimi, and beef tartare. As for beverages, they drank iced teas and Diet Cokes. (How very restrained.)
