Kevin & Kyra hit South Beach

On Tuesday night, Kevin Bacon and wife Kyra Sedgwick took their two children, Travis and Sosie, to Eden South Beach where the restaurant created special vegetarian/non-red meat options for the family. Later that night the couple, sans kids, were seen at The Betsy.

Also on Tuesday night, Jamie Foxx turned the dinner party at Blue Door Fish at Delano into his own personal playground. Dining with Gabrielle Union, Kelly Rowland and others, Foxx jumped behind the DJ booth, grabbed the mic as he is known to do everywhere, sending the entire lobby into a frenzy. The actor/singer followed his surprise performance with a celebration at The Florida Room.

Pitbull stopped by Barrio Latino SoMi for a Christmas Eve get together with a gang of friends. According to spies, he toured the kitchen, sang an impromptu bar or two of his hits and took photos with sushi chef Anderson Osorio before feasting on sushi, ceviche, wine and shots of Patron. Once word got out about who was inside, women started showing up outside where the rapper went to shake hands with his adoring fans. Kourtney Kardashian and baby daddy Scott Disick, last seen roughing up a photog for getting too close to his son at MIA, were seen Wednesday night at Skybar at Shore Club while waiting for a table at Nobu. The reality show couple sat outside at Skybar for almost 30 minutes while waiting.

Actor Frank Langella had dinner Tuesday night at Zuma with a group of friends including the princess of Jordan. He ate the salmon and tuna tartare and the beef tataki among other dishes and shook hands with other diners on his way out.


Celebrity-wise, 2010 was a real reality check for Miami, from the ubiquitous Kardashians to the tacky hair-pulling, fist-pumping pranks of the Jersey Shore cast. And then there were the endless castings for even more Miami-based reality shows. We’re still waiting on word as to when The Real Housewives of Miami will air on Bravo.

While we did have more regular folk getting famous for doing nothing than actual talent passing through town this year, there was never a dull moment. We called on some of the city’s movers and shakers to comment on the insanity. As for 2011, we’re sure there’s a junior Kardashian waiting to emerge from its pod, ready for its Miami close-up.
