March 27, 2012

Here’s a good one for you: ~Robert Redford~ walked in to Marlowe last night with six others around 7:30pm. They shared wine, a few snacks, and laughs—he was reportedly very gracious. Redford is currently filming a documentary with his son called Watershed, in an attempt to raise awareness about the environmental threats to the Colorado River system. (Read more about the doc here.)

~Britney Spears~ and her fiancé, Jason Trawick, were spotted in San Francisco last week. They stayed at the W San Francisco for a couple nights in the Extreme-WOW suite (W’s spin on the Presidential Suite). They stayed relatively low-key during their visit, but were seen shopping nearby at Westfield San Francisco Centre; Brit reportedly was in town for a meeting with a local beauty site.

The one and only ~Jean Paul Gaultier~ was in town for the opening of his fashion retrospective at the de Young, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: from the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. This past Saturday evening, he was spotted at Twenty Five Lusk.

Leave it to my writer pal Marke B. over at the Bay Guardian to have the nightlife details: Gaultier made some stops at “the Some Thing drag show at the Stud on Friday, [and had] a cruisy interlude at the Powerhouse on Saturday.”

The ~Yeah Yeah Yeahs~, who were in town for The Creators Project (still can’t believe I didn’t go!), came in to Rose Pistola for dinner. (Here’s a pic of Karen O’s fab cowgirl ensemble during their performance.)

On his recent stop in San Francisco to perform, ~John Waters~ dined with a friend at Foreign Cinema. He is reportedly a regular when he’s in town, and told chef Gayle Pirie, “You have always fed me so well over the years. How can I resist coming here!? I love it!”

He started with the squid appetizer with poblano chilies, chickpeas, and aioli, and his entrée was the Grains & Greens (quinoa, sauce romesco, broccoli rabe, baby turnips, artichokes, pappadam). So healthy!

First up, singer ~Kelly Clarkson~ was at the Grand Café bar Sunday night drinking a bloody Mary. Not sure why she was in town, but my spotter just loved that she was drinking a bloody Mary in the evening. 

On the same evening, right before the restaurant closed, ~Jonathan Pryce~ (who’s the British actor that’s staring in the “Caretaker” over at the Curran), came into the Grand Café bar with a small group. He ordered a Grey Goose on the rocks.

My spy at Venticello tells me conservative chums ~Ann Coulter~ (columnist, commentator, lawyer) and ~Peter Thiel~ (PayPal dude, venture capitalist, and philanthropist) had dinner together on Sunday evening. (My spotter also pointed me to this funny Coulter sighting via a Nob Hill blogger.)
