LeBron James was seen Thursday night at American Social Brickell. An NBA breakup couldn’t come between the King and former teammate Dwyane Wade. The two, joined by Cleveland Cavaliers player Kyrie Irving, enjoyed the NFL season opener from the restaurant’s semi-private Kennedy Lounge. Surrounded by a small entourage, the NBA trio kept the dining fare light with small plates and salads with blackened chicken. Irving and James sipped on Don Julio 1942 and Ketel One on the rocks while Wade opted for an Evian water.
On Saturday, James and wife Savannah Brinson celebrated their first anniversary at Bianca at the Delano. The couple was overheard raving about the custom red velvet dessert that pastry chef Armand Berger created especially for Brinson.
Milwaukee Bucks star Michael Carter Williams had hosting duties Saturday at FDR at the Delano. Carter and his group (de)hydrated with Moet and Belvedere while Cleveland Cavaliers star Irving partied at the table next to him. Also seen in the crowd and hard to miss: Miami Heat giant Luol Deng.
Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito was seen Sunday having dinner at The Forge. On Friday there, drag diva/shero Elaine Lancaster celebrated her birthday with friends including KC of Sunshine Band fame. Across the restaurant, Washington Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman was seen having dinner with his wife.
