Actor Sean Penn was spotted at Ame a couple weeks ago (who has two thumbs and forgot to publish this entry?). According to a Tweet, the Prime Minister of Haiti was staying at the St. Regis, so perhaps to two were meeting (Penn is an ambassador at large to Haiti). While in the lounge, the star also got quite angry with a guest who took a photo on his phone; SFist has the video. Grrrr.

Another Sean Penn sighting from last week: according to Leah Garchik’s column, he was at Tosca Cafe in North Beach, and “met up with the three American hikers released after being incarcerated in Iran.” (According to Reuters, Penn had a hand in helping with their release.)

A tablehopper reader let me know Sean Penn and Soleil Moon Frye were both at Aziza two weekends ago for a Haiti fundraiser, specifically to raise awareness about the J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO).

Chef Alex Ong of Betelnut had quite the night last week: Sean Penn, and Chuck Williams (of Williams Sonoma) and culinary doyenne Cecilia Chiang were all in the house on the same night. A tablehopper reader spotted Penn at the “chef’s bar just at the corner around the back. About an hour into dinner they moved to a booth. He was pretty much left alone by other diners. A bachelorette party in the back requested he stop by (via the waiter). But he declined (can’t blame him for that choice).” He ordered spring rolls, minced chicken with lettuce cups, rib eye, Maojitos (Betelnut’s version of mojitos), and two shots of Fernet.
