Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato had dinner Wednesday at Bâoli in South Beach, where, says our spy, “they ordered half of the menu to try everything.” The crooner also ordered a bottle of Cristal champagne, which only he drank. They arrived at 8:30 p.m. and left around 1 a.m. Lopilato, several months pregnant with a baby boy, wanted to go back to the hotel to put on a dress and return to the restaurant to dance, which, amazingly, they did.

TV host and local best-selling author Brad Meltzer, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Miami-Dade Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho will help celebrate the charity City Year at its annual Red Jacket Ball on Saturday night at Miami Circle Park. How much does Meltzer appreciate the help of local leaders, who have put almost 200 mentors in Miami’s most challenged schools? In his newest No. 1 bestseller, The Fifth Assassin, there’s a DC police officer named Carvalho. “The real Carvalho is far more heroic,” Meltzer said. “Plus, he’s got far better hair.”

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova had dinner Wednesday with a group of friends at Caffe Abbracci.
