It was a busy week for celebrities in the Hub, with everyone from Christian Bale to Jesse Jackson dining in our city. Bar none, the dinner at which we’d most like to have been a fly on the wall (or a shaker of salt on the table) happened at Big Papi’s Grille, where Sox men Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz supped with Yankees Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter, along with Kate Hudson. Crazy! Expect more very exciting sightings soon, since Don Draper Jon Hamm is expected to arrive soon to start filming the Ben Affleck directed The Town.
