David Beckham & friends check out Cavalli


Following his selfie — er, meeting — with Gov. Rick Scott in Tallahassee Monday, David Beckham had dinner with five friends at Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge. After dinner, he and his group went up to the Lounge where he ordered a bottle of Grey Goose vodka. Also spotted there was Anthony Mackie, who’s co-starring in the upcoming Captain America movie and was also spotted Tuesday at Cavalli.

Mackie was also seen Wednesday with friends at Zuma, a place we’re told that Rafael Nadal adopted as his second home during the Sony tournament. He was seen there almost daily eating “some healthy choices from the menu.”
