There were a bunch of sightings of our boys in black and orange last week. A reader wrote in: “Last night after Game 1, ~San Francisco Giants~ Marco Scutaro, Gregor Blanco, Hector Sanchez, and Jose Mijares had a late dinner at La Mar. Plus ex-Giant and fellow Venezuelan Omar Vizquel joined them!” After a little follow-up with the restaurant, I learned the following: “They had cebiches, causas, empanadas, lomo saltado, a few different arroces. They have all come in before and really enjoy our food. Pablo Sandoval was in the prior weekend.” Since it was close to 10pm, only a few guests recognized them, but those that did were excited.
Meanwhile, ~Pablo “The Panda” Sandoval~ convinced Limon on Valencia to open up for a late dinner after hitting three homers last Wednesday night. Mission Mission has the deets. Chef-owner Martin Castillo reportedly said: “You have to open up after he homers three times. He’s a great customer. We always go the extra mile for him.”
