Rita Moreno

November 22, 2011

Last week ~Rita Moreno~, proud owner of an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, dined on a wedge salad and shrimp scampi at Yankee Pier in Lafayette. She appeared fresh from her performance at the Berkeley Rep, wearing knee-high purple suede boots—reports say she treated the staff very kindly.

Former Oakland A’s pitcher ~Vida Blue~, proud owner of 1971 Cy Young and MVP awards, also dined at Yankee Pier Lafayette. He had a New York steak, and his wife had a cup of chowder and a Caesar salad. He signed autographs for young fans.

~PICÁN~ restaurant in Oakland’s Uptown district hosted quite the slew of special guests: singer, dancer, and actress ~Rita Moreno~ dined with her husband and two friends, and in the sporty category, ~Randy Winn~, outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, was in with his family celebrating his wife’s birthday. And then ~Devean George~, forward/guard for the Golden State Warriors was in with a friend. Looks like playing ball works up quite the appetite, because Devean had two entrées: the Corvina sea bass and the black pepper-crusted salmon.
