HEY, I THINK I SEE A CELEBRITY: All Chi-Town Sightings From 9/20-9/27
From time to time celebrities do step out of LA and New York to venture over to the windy city! They’re not always A-list, but what the heck, we’ll take what we can get. This week’s sightings, as compiled by Red Eye:
Apparently guitar legends get hungry like the rest of us. Metallica bassist Kirk Hammett, who told Rolling Stone, “The way I look at it, to quote Keith Richards, the only way out of this band is in a wooden box,” was spotted at downtown steakhouse Joe’s Stone Crab.
That 70s Show’s Wilmer Valderrama dined at Sunda on Monday night before heading to Angels & Kings and Stay. Wilmer, who’s been talking about starring in a big screen version of CHiPs since his former sitcom ended, recently said about the project:
Yeah, CHiPS is going to happen next year. That’s been a roller coaster because we had a couple of problems.” One of the problems was, in fact, his own schedule: “I just finished a lot of the projects that were pushing the starting date. So now we’re gearing up for early next year which is great. I’m excited finally to think about it.”
Note to Wilmer: Starring in a sitcom that ended almost four years ago doesn’t exactly constitute as “a ton of projects.”
On Thursday, Queen Latifah dined with Anthony Fiore at his restaurant Elate at the Hotel Felix. It probably wasn’t as exciting as a no-holds-barred stripper party, but, hey, I’m sure the food was good.
Pink, who was in town for her sold out concert at All State Arena, dined with on-again, off-again boyfriend Carey Hart at Table Fifty-Two on Friday. The Chicago Tribune’s review of the show said, “The platinum blonde’s take on the Divinyls‘ ‘I Touch Myself,’ which saw her cavorting solo on an angular red couch, came across like a cheesy dream sequence from a lost episode of Wayne’s World.”
The Hills “star” Justin Bobby dined at Duchamp Friday before heading to do some Hills-related business: hosting the season six premiere party. Who knew being a douchebag with two first names could be so good for your career?
