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.”

Colombian doubles team Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah competed against each other off-court and behind the bar Monday at the Sony Open Bombay Sapphire Players Mix-Off Competition, shaking up the perfect Sapphire Ace Collins, the official cocktail of the Sony Open. While Farah exclaimed, “I used to be a bartender, c'mon, this is easy!” he ended up tied with his partner, proving they really are on the same level playing — and mixing — field.
