well, since every celebrity is either in east hampton or L.A. right now, those who remain in the city are for work.

so today, want to see james franco, julia roberts, or javier bardem? they're all in Eat, Pray, Love which is filming on 43rd St. between 5th & 6th. It's pretty rare that things film on Sundays, so..go, go, go! take pictures! send them to me! ( (onlocationvacations)

up late partying? if not, you should be.

first try dinner at Philippe (33 E 60)...or at least stand outside and down a hotdog from a vendor.

...or try Nello (696 Madison Ave.), where husband and wife Jay-Z and Beyonce recently dined (justjared)

....or, for an even more guaranteed celeb eatery, one of my favorites that seems to never fail: Da Silvano (260 Sixth Ave.)'s a fav. of Rihanna, Lindsay, Paris, Rachel Zoe, Nicky Hilton. You name it, they eat there.

Then, make your way over to the East Village.....

Want to see Pete Wentz? if you don't already know, Fall Out Boy is part owners of the East Village bar Angels & Kings. What you may not already know, is he also visits surrounding bars. Can't get in to AK47? Try the bar at 510 E 11th St. (gawker stalker)

p.s. Oprah, Gayle King and Alicia Keys were just seen at Philippe. (tmz) But it's not rare. It's a hot bed for celebs. I promise.

Happy Wednesday Fun Nugget Day!

Am I the only one who misses Lindsay, Paris & Nicole doing inane things? I know, it was so 2005, but my god it was so fun. I went to Bungalow 8 and it was 5a.m., and as I'm walking in, Paris Hilton was walking out. I was so tired and withdrawn I barely noticed...until...she turned around, faced Lindsay and yelled "FIRECROTCH!"

Those were the days. None of the good stuff happens anymore. Does anyone still go to B8 either?

The only thing that keeps me hanging on is when lindsay was sobbing on sam's stoop in an all jealous rage. love it!
