Pierce Brosnan, in town promoting The November Man, was seen Thursday at the Shore Club, where he headed straight to the Scoop NYC boutique to pick up a new pair of jeans. His old genes, however, are just fine.

The duo that brought us Transformers, Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer, made their way to Villa Azur’s Thursday night bash. The party of five hit the bar and mingled with the restaurant’s owner, Jean-Phillipe Bernard, ex partner of Halle Berry’s (reportedly estranged) hubby, Olivier Martinez. who is no longer part of the operation.

Enrique Iglesias had dinner with girlfriend Anna Kournikova and a large group of friends Wednesday night at Caffe Abbracci. The couple walked in hand in hand and were seemingly there to celebrate something as there were multiple toasts, clapping and cheering throughout the night. Perhaps they pulled a Brangelina? We asked owner Nino Pernetti who said they were celebrating “life and being at Abbracci’s.” Earlier that night, Iglesias was seen at Splitsville Miami for a meet and greet with Power 96 contest winners.

Mike Tyson had lunch with two male pals Wednesday at Morton’s The Steakhouse on Brickell. Tyson apparently is a big fan of Zuma, being spotted there almost every day this week, acting, says our spy, “positive and relaxed.”

Magic Johnson dined with friends Wednesday at Prime 112 and on Thursday, Alonzo Mourning and Patrick Ewing were both seen supping at Prime Italian.

Grammy winning singer-songwriter Estelle let loose Monday night at FDR at the Delano, strutting in with seven friends, hitting the dance floor, sipping on Grey Goose and Patron and interacting with other revelers.

Broward diners were in for a lunch time surprise on Wednesday. Miami Heat player Udonis Haslem met with Coach Erik Spoelstra at BRIO Tuscan Grille in Pembroke Gardens. Sources say Spoelstra left early, but Haslem welcomed photographs with the staff and guests. Italian must be the NBA’s cuisine of choice as Amare Stoudemire also visited the same BRIO Tuscan Grille a week earlier.
