Armistead Maupin

May 1, 2012

A few fun sightings at Jake’s on Market: one reader writes in to say they sat next to ~Armistead Maupin~ of Tales of the City fame, while another diner spotted actress ~Judy Davis~, who was in town to accept the Peter J. Owens Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival. Also in town for festival honors, ~Kenneth Branagh~ was spotted at Jake’s last Thursday. The reader who got to meet the Shakespearean actor tells us, “Wow, what a nice guy.”

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.
