Anyone ever tell you look like someone famous? Barack Obama? Dan Marino? Sandra Bullock? Someone incarcerated or in rehab? Figure out your “face soul mate” at findyourfacemate.com. Star watchers can upload selfies, and they’re entered into a database of thousands of celebrities from sports figures and politicians to actors and singers. Why go through the trouble? Bragging rights (one would hope).

Drink

Kenny Chesney is from Tennessee, but he feels at home on the beach — where he spends much of his off time, kicking back with a cocktail. It was only a matter of time before the country star came out with a rum, called Blue Chair Bay, after his song “Old Blue Chair.” “I wanted to create something I could be really proud of,” he told Forbes. “Not just take a check and a piece of a company, but make the rum I truly wanted to drink.” Two coconut flavors and a white version (mellowed in casks in Barbados) are on shelves at Crown Wine & Spirits in Coral Gables. $18.99.

Johnathan Hillstrand, of “Deadliest Catch” fame, is an old softie. The grandfather of two has come out with his second children’s book, “The Adventures of Joey and Andy Crab: Crab Day Afternoon.” The co-captain of the F/V Time Bandit wrote and illustrated the book — about two crab brothers who skipped school and end up in (literally) hot water — after breaking his ribs during a failed bull riding attempt last summer. The message: Behave! $14.95 at shop.timebandit.tv

He did concede that Germany was the rightful winner. Connery also told Pernetti that what he enjoys most in life after making movies is ... soccer. The ex 007 left the restaurant, saying “Cheerio,” to the owner and his starstruck guests.
