Argentine soccer star Javier Mascherano was seen with friends Friday at the Wynwood shop Toys for Boys, where they enjoyed a bottle of Dom Perignon while talking to the owners and browsing the luxe items. As far as we know they didn’t buy anything.

More soccer players were seen at swank strip club E11Even Miami over the weekend including Dani Alves (FC Barcelona and Brazilian National Team) and Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea premier and Spanish National Team), who were seen popping magnum bottles of Dom Perignon until 7 a.m. while Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher was seen in the club’s party pit, celebrating at VIP table with bottles of Ciroc and Patron.

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello were seen dining Friday with friends at Seasalt and Pepper, where they refused to take photos together but, says the source, “were very affectionate and she was glowing.” The group sat outside and sipped from a bottle of Moët Ice offered to them by Seasalt owner Carlos Miranda. TV’s highest paid actress paid the bill and left a super generous tip before leaving around 1 a.m. A close source of Vergara’s says, “She is on cloud nine and not looking back at the breakup of [ex fiance] Nick Loeb.”

On Saturday, Vergara took her beau to meet her family, party of 12, at a 10 p.m. dinner at Makoto in Bal Harbour. Vergara, who eons ago dated former club honcho turned fitness club owner Chris Paciello, is said to be staying “far away” from her ex with whom she is said to be “on the outs” after an alleged altercation between Paciello and Loeb at Story nightclub in January 2013.

Sean Connery was seen dining with friends Sunday at Makoto in Bal Harbour. According to our savvy spy, he went “mostly unrecognized” throughout the night.

Celebrating his 39th birthday with girlfriend Torrie Wilson, Alex Rodriguez and some friends had dinner Saturday in Prime 112’s wine room. Across the street at Prime Italian: Shaquille O’Neal.

SNL cast member Keenan Thompson was seen checking into the Palms Hotel and Spa with his wife and newborn child. On Saturday, the couple, sans baby, had dinner at the hotel’s restaurant Essensia, and on Sunday they were seen supping at Cecconi’s.

At one time rumored to be Katy Perry’s paramour, DJ Diplo performed to a packed house Saturday at Adore nightclub where he was seen dispelling those rumors by kissing each of the two females attached to his hips. When one fan asked, “Where is Katy Perry?” he replied “Katy who?”
