Jamie Foxx still has it. The 46-year-old partied like a man half his age Tuesday night over at Wall nightclub inside the W South Beach Hotel, onlookers said. Foxx, fresh off a batch of Super Bowl parties in NYC, was seen out with director Michael Bay and Parks and Recreation actor Ben Schwartz. Flirting? Yes, Foxx is good at that. The actor-comedian was reportedly very friendly with fans/aka beautiful women as well as with the door staff. We’re truly not sure what to make of the renewed Katie Holmes rumors because the dude definitely seems single.
It’s raining men
Thank goodness for buff miracles in bow ties. Due to such a positive response, Chippendales is returning to Mansion beginning Feb. 20 for a five-week extension. “The show has clearly struck a chord,” says managing partner Kevin Denberg, who adds that it’s “a go-to destination for girls night out.” Ya think?
‘Man’ of the hour
We don’t have George Clooney in our midst, but we do have a war hero on our hands of sorts. The actor’s latest movie, The Monuments Men, opening Friday, has special meaning for local trial lawyer Ira Leesfield. While an appointee with the Clinton administration’s U.S. Presidential Advisory Commission on Holocaust Assets from 1998 to 2000, Leesfield helped track down looted Holocaust art and cultural treasures just as Clooney’s character does in the movie, just in modern times.
“This was a moment in history that continues today,” says Leesfield, who also served on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. “Masterpieces are still being returned to their rightful owners. It’s still a current issue in 2014.”
Leesfield’s work brought him to the archives of the Getty Museum where his gloved hands held letters from Hitler, Goering and Goebbels, discussing art stolen from European Jews.
“It was breathtaking,” recalls Leesfield.
The good life
Robin Leach really is living his own version of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The famed entertainment reporter, dressed in white, flew in from La Vegas for the VIP opening of new downtown spot, E11even Miami (in the former Gold Rush space) Wednesday night. Leach schmoozed with pal, Top Chef: Seattle season 10 contestant Carla Pellegrino, who is running the kitchen at the club’s upstairs restaurant, Touche.
Across the causeway, season 11 TC’s Nina Compton lost out to Philly’s Nicholas Elmi. But the local St. Lucia native, 34, is hardly sloppy seconds, and celebrated with fans at her restaurant, Scarpetta.
Rock this town
Here’s a good excuse to go to Doral: On March 8 — a Saturday, so less traffic — Travie McCoy will headline a concert at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Trump National resort. Other stuff to entice nongolfers: The tourney will include a Friday night Carolina Herrera fashion show hosted by Ivanka Trump (makes sense) and featuring an appearance by reigning Miss Universe Gabriela Isler. The live performance by the Gym Class Heroes’ front man turned solo star McCoy should be a definite highlight, according to, well, him. “Miami definitely knows how to get down,” says the Aventura-based singer. “This will be a party you don’t want to miss.” Tickets: www.CadillacChampionship.com
