Not together (we don’t think). Samuelsson arrives in town on Monday to promote his new memoir, Yes, Chef, with a signing at Whole Foods at 340 River Street in Cambridge. The event kicks off at 11:30, so plan your salad-bar strategy accordingly. That night, he’ll whip up dinner at Coppa. Meanwhile, Ron Jeremy is in town today. And, while he’s not going to cook at Coppa, he will appear at a Worcester gentleman’s club.

The entrepreneurial elder statesman of smut will promote his spiced rum at liquor stores throughout the region. Hang with him at Blanchards in Allston beginning at 6 p.m. tonight, at Tresca in the North End at 8:30, or if you’re feeling frisky, at Splash Ultra Lounge starting at 10:30 p.m. Just don’t try to get him tipsy: He rarely drinks.

Happily, suburban porn enthusiasts can also visit with him on Friday evening at Julio’s Liquors in Westborough or at Emperor’s Gentleman’s Club in Worcester at 8:30. Sounds like a tight schedule! Hopefully he’s up to the task.
