Vince Vaughn at United Center

Does this guy ever miss a Blackhawks game? Doesn’t appear so. He loves the Blackhawks so much he’s put them in his new movie, The Dilemma. Don’t we all love every time we go to the game seeing his face on the jumbotron? And the crowd goes wild!

Kardashian Sisters at Enclave

No, Kim was not there, but Kourtney and Kloe were and they created quite a stir. Their dramatic entrance (of course) began with the DJ’s announcement and spotlights, followed by an endless flow of champagne bottles topped with sparklers. The girls had the best seat in the house and definitely know how to do it up in style. Fans flocked to their elevated table to snap as many pictures as they could. The rest of the night, cameras flashed blinded me, but it was worth it.

Bill Clinton and Rham Emanuel

Bill Clinton and Rahm Emanuel at Tavern at the Park

Tavern at the Park is the popular place for a business meeting around here, so why wouldn’t Bill and Rahm stop by for a taste of the Windy City? (It also just so happens that Rahm Emanuel is the quintessential “windy” politician right about now.) The owners informed me that Clinton was very tall, Emanuel very short, and both were very friendly. A fabulous duo.

Julius Peppers at Crescendo

When Julius Peppers was signed on to the Bears, he couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to head to Crescendo and buy every table a bottle of champagne that Friday evening. The club-goers must have made a great impression on him because he returned on that very next Saturday. While I missed his first appearance, I didn’t miss the very next evening to catch a glimpse of our new, spotlighted player. However, I was majorly bummed I didn’t get that bottle of Dom Perignon.

Johnny Depp at Gibson’s

My favorite actor of all time doesn’t ever miss out on Gibson’s when he comes into town. He even has his own server, Moe, who has become famous due to Mr. Depp’s newsworthy tip of $4,000. This restaurant is right down the street from me, and I always happen to find out after-the-fact that he was in town. I cry myself to sleep every time.

Lindsay Lohan at Angels and Kings

OK, so Pre-Rehab Lindsey Lohan could be found at Angels and Kings with her alleged girlfriend Samantha Ronson (who?). Their most talked about sighting was to celebrate Samantha’s 32nd birthday. This hot spot has just recently moved to the Hard Rock Hotel on Michigan Avenue. Will Lindsay be appearing at the grand opening? It can only make for great headlines.

Mike Posner at Underground

A great performance deserves a packed house, and that is what Mike Posner received at his Underground appearance. While we were packed in like sardines, that didn’t keep me from being completely entertained by the magnificent performance. Mike Posner has also performed at Enclave, but Underground was his best turnout.

Frank Thomas at RiNo

The evening of my birthday party last year, Frank Thomas was spotted at RiNo. Thank you for coming to my birthday party and for buying everyone beverages, Mr. Thomas. However, blinded by his blinged-out watch, my friend was one leg deep in his Bentley when we had to drag her back to the party.
