July 10, 2012

A tablehopper reader let me know she spotted funnyman ~Dave Chappelle~ at nopa last Tuesday evening (he was performing a couple of surprise shows up the street at The Independent).

After some Twitter tips (and subsequent sleuthing), it also appears Chappelle dined at Cupola Pizzeria last night.

This sighting is a bit far afield, but it’s a fun one, so let’s do it: a reader spotted ~Christina Aguilera~ at the atmospheric Restaurant 1833 in Monterey this past weekend. She reportedly dined with her boyfriend (Matthew Rutler) and son, Max—the adults had the tasting menu with wine pairings. My spotter says she was very kind to the staff and incredibly attentive to Max.

The last Saturday night in June, EPIC Roasthouse hosted the 2002 Giants World Series team reunion in the private dining room. Twenty-two of the twenty-five players were there for the event along with their wives and families. Barry Bonds, Jeff Kent, JT Snow, and Rich Aurilia were in the crowd. Also, Hall of Fame first baseman and left fielder Orlando Cepeda, team president Larry Baer, GM Brian Sabean, and Hall of Fame Giants announcer Lon Simmons were also in attendance.
