Assorted crew of stars in town, from Robert Redford to Trick Daddy

Trick Daddy was spotted giving locals an impromptu performance Monday at SL Miami, hanging out in the DJ booth and making jokes into the microphone all night long.

Robert Redford, in town for the Wednesday night National YoungArts Foundation world premiere of performance art piece The Way of the Rain Miami by his wife, environmental artist Sibylle, was seen having cocktails and sushi with friends at the Mandarin Oriental, Miami's brand new MO Bar + Lounge.

LeBron James, now shilling for Obamacare in his spare time, was spotted after the game Wednesday night at Zuma with wife Savannah and friends. Despite the loss, James put on a happy face and still took pictures with excited fans.

Kate Upton was spotted Thursday, the day before her Express event (see display) feasting at Lorenzo at The Redbury. According to our sources, Upton ate “hearty menu items,” including meatballs and eggplant fries with friends. No word on if her rumored back-on again boyfriend, Detroit Tigers player Justin Verlander, was there.

Rapper Rick Ross celebrated the success of his latest chart-topping album “Mastermind” Thursday with a private dinner for family and friends at Mr. Chow. Ross and his crew of 17, including mom and sister, sampled everything on the menu and ordered 20 bottles of his favorite bubbly Belaire Rosé, which was used for several toasts throughout the night. During dinner, Ross showed a softer side to his usual tough-guy demeanor by giving a compelling speech to thank everyone for their hard work on the album. At some point, everyone went around the table to raise a toast to the “Boss” and to tell a personal anecdote. The intimate affair was produced by Vanity Group, who outfitted the space to resemble Ross' album artwork.

Shahs of Sunset's Reza Farahan was spotted making the worst karaoke singer sound like Streisand Thursday night at The Cabaret, where he slaughtered Blu Cantrell's “Hit 'em Up Style.” “We could not get him off the stage. He sang horribly and tried to be the emcee,” says our source.

And last but certainly not least... the Kardashian sisters made the rounds last week. Kim had dinner with a group Tuesday night at Hakkasan at the Fontainebleau. They ate a lot, says our spy, and received a bill which was paid, though we're not sure by whom. On Wednesday night, Kourtney and baby daddy Scott Disick had dinner at Prime 112; on Thursday the entire clan had lunch there. They ate healthy, says our spy, lunching on soups and salads. Ditto about receiving a bill.
