After their big win over the Pacers on Friday night, the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade, Ray Allen and Chris Bosh all headed straight to Prime 112 for a late night dinner. The trio, all with their own entourages, sat separately, but as they entered, each player received a standing ovation and applause from the dining room. Later in that night — or morning, rather, around 1:45 a.m. — boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. was seen making his way to the wine room with his entourage of 20.

Teammate Udonis Haslem was spotted Saturday afternoon sipping cocktails with a pal at the W Fort Lauderdale’s WET pool bar and then on Sunday night enjoying a relaxing dinner at Steak 954, while Micky Arison and Pat Riley celebrated together at The Forge, and Bosh and friends supped at Scarpetta.

And spotted Friday night in Hyde at AmericanAirlines Arena were Serena Williams, Adrienne Bosh, Cincinnati Bengals player Carlos Dunlap and retired Yankees catcher Jorge Posada. Seen sitting courtside during the game, meanwhile, was recently dis-engaged tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, there with Williams, who was said to be helping her get over the split with golfer Rory McIIroy.

After ripping into the VA investigation, calling it deplorable, Senator Bill Nelson was seen lunching with business associates Friday at Caffe Abbracci.

Mexican actor, singer and model Victor Noriega was seen Saturday night, joining friends for a late dinner at Zuma.

Atlanta Braves player Dan Uggla and several of his teammates were seen strolling into swank strip club E11even Miami at 4 a.m. over the weekend before their games against the Marlins. Says our spy, “They didn’t go VIP and just hung out at the bar, sipping cocktails and talking to beautiful entertainers.”
