Giants’ left fielder and NLCS MVP Cody Ross came into EPIC Roasthouse’s Quiver Bar on Saturday the 13th—he enjoyed a dirty martini and split a burger with his buddy. Wine director Petra Polakovicova styled him out with a glass of EPIC cabernet sauvignon, and he signed the bottle, took a few photos with guests, and thanked everyone on the way out.

I’ve had Giants sightings pouring in, whether it’s Brian Wilson at Delarosa (check out this picture of THE BEARD, holy cow), to Pablo “The Panda” Sandoval leaving Fresca in Noe Valley—the tablehopper reader said he “was not as ‘beefy’ as I had expected. I left him alone, but I was pretty close to bear hugging him.” The Panda was also spotted at Buca di Beppo dining with his family after the parade—with a monster truck-sized brownie sundae on their table.
Further sightings: Brian Wilson, Aubrey Huff, and Pat Burrell were at The Republic on Wednesday night after the parade. My spotter says, “You would have thought they were the Beatles coming to America for the first time the way the throngs of ladies were acting! When they walked in there were about 40 people in the place, and within 30 minutes there were 250 with a line around the corner, people jumping through windows, etc.”
And then World Series MVP Edgar Renteria celebrated at Waterbar with five friends, just a day after winning the championship. He likes his rib eye well done (!) and his party drank aged rum with their dinner. In honor of the Giants playing in the World Series, Waterbar created a specialty cocktail, “The Torture,” that was featured on the cocktail menu with the Giants logo. Edgar graciously signed the cocktail page listing The Torture for many guests.

SF Giants’ relief pitcher, Brian Wilson, was spotted at SusieCakes Bakery on Chestnut Street purchasing a seven-layer bar last week. He was reportedly eyeing the Giants cupcakes and cookies, but went with the bar instead.
