Jim Marshall, the ultimate rock 'n' roll and famed "Rolling Stone" photographer, celebrated his 70th birthday earlier this month at 2223 Restaurant with a star-studded list of guests that included Gina Gershon, Joan Baez, and the musician John Mayer.

Apollonia (of "Purple Rain" and the ever-fab track "Sex Shooter") came to see Bebel Gilberto perform at supperclub on Monday night a couple weeks back, and Bebel invited her on stage. (She sang back up on some songs.) Ends up the girls went totally nutty for each other. How crazy? How about Bebel kissing Apollonia's feet and Apollonia giving Bebel one of her blingy rings. Girls. Bebel kept asking her back to stay and sing for the other shows, so Apollonia cancelled her flight two more nights in a row. Total BFF!

And my personal favorite: on Valentine's Day, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) was in Mangarosa for dinner. I can only imagine he sunk his pointy teeth into the steak "rechaud."
