I was really into writing about celebrity sightings at Austin restaurants for some time, Then I guess ennui set in [probably due to the same celebs being sighted over and over] around 2012 and that part of our site kinda went dark. But it’s back and here are some of the latest sightings with some new and old celebs.
Ryan Gosling, an Austin fixture was seen at Guero’s the other night. Bill Clinton used to have food from Guero’s sent out to the tarmac when ever he was in Austin on Air Force One.
Comedian Lewis Black [I love this guy] was spotted in tow with Trevor Noah, the very talented new host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central at Qui not long ago. Noah purportedly fell in love with Austin [doesn’t everyone]. Could it have reminded him of South Africa.
Dennis Quaid was spotted at a certain rooftop bar sipping Mojitos and grousing about the fact that Artz Rib House was never going to reopen. [He loved the thick pork ribs].
Chelsea Handler [host of her new Netflix show] was seen with Sandra Bullock at Bess [they are buds]. Rare sighting for Sandy at her own restaurant. Alas Chuey was not in the group says my source.
Billie Bob Thornton was seen throwing down pizza at Hoeck’s Death Metal Pizza on W 6th. Somehow that seems appropriate.
Richard Lanklater was seen at the new Jeffrey’s with Patrica Arquette. I’ll bet that Ron and Peggy Weiss wish they still owned the legendary W Lyn Bistro
Nicholas Cage was seen bar hopping on 6th St not long ago. Cage has been a frequent visitor to Austin for years. I wonder if he has another Leaving Las Vegas in him instead of the dreadful stuff he’s been churning out lately [Left Behind].
Michael and Susan Dell, unquestionably the richest couple in town, and according to servers also among the poorest tippers, were seen splitting a salad at a high-end downtown joint. Name withheld at owners request.
