LeBron James had lunch with friends Tuesday at Burger & Beer Joint’s Brickell location. According to our sources, he ordered a “healthy, 8 oz turkey burger.”

After winning game 5 in the playoffs against Philadelphia, Miami Heat masters James and Dwyane Wade went to Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink with a party of eight for a celebratory dinner in the private room.

After his sold-out concert with Usher Wednesday, Akon took the afterparty to SET where he celebrated with, says our source, “throngs of ladies” at a VIP table.

Now that it’s up for rent/sale, the former estate where William Pawley, Jr. and a teenaged Elizabeth Taylor had a tryst at 2555 Lake Avenue on Sunset Island II is opening itself up to buyers and bidders. The love letters written by Taylor to Pawley, Jr. will also return to their original destination before hitting the auction block at a private viewing on Tuesday. Also expected: Pawley, Jr., who will be bringing rare photos of himself with his love, the late screen legend.

Gold medalist Lindsey Vonn was vacationing with her sister last week at Tempo Miami, a RockResort hotel in downtown Miami. The American alpine ski racer, who has won three consecutive World Cup and Downhill Championships, was also spotted dining in Tempo’s Amuse restaurant.

Lil’ Kim was spotted at Prime One Twelve Wednesday night with Minnesota Vikings player and former Miami Hurricane Bryant McKinnie. Nearby at Big Pink, Jersey Shore’s The Situation drove up in a bright red Ferrari. Among his other obligations in town: speaking at the American Bar Association Entertainment Law Conference at the W South Beach. Now that’s a crime. Lil Kim and McKinnie were also seen partying Tuesday night at Cameo, where they were “ogling the ladies working the pole” at the Lapdance Tuesday party.

Shoe designer Brian Atwood was at the W South Beach Wednesday night for a private dinner in the penthouse hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue and MIAMI Magazine following an appearance at Saks’ Bal Harbour store.

Spotted around town: Taye Diggs, who’s doing a solo show at Prelude by Barton G Saturday night. The Private Practice star brought along wife, Broadway star Idina Menzel, for support.
