Sad news indeed: A crop of most eligible bachelors might just be taking themselves off the market this week. Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift continue to scandalize the tabloids with outings and “dates,” making their much-rumored relationship semi-public. The morning after the pair attended the SNL after-party (together?), they enjoyed a slow weekend brunch at Park Slope’s Al Di Là. Meanwhile, Ryan Kwanten charmed the wait staff (and no doubt his date, too) with cutesy antics while at the Stanton Social for dinner — at one point he was even dancing in his chair. Adrien Grenier amped up the romance factor with a fireside table for his lucky lady at La Lanterna di Vittorio. The rest of this week’s celebrity sightings straight ahead.

Bar Pitti: Gerard Butler grabbed lunch with two female friends. [JustJared]

Indochine: Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was forced to order scissors (along with her Pinot Grigio) at dinner. Her earring had fallen off earlier en route to an event and, classy as ever, she’d improvised and stuck the errant piece of jewelry back on with gum — which then got stuck in her hair. [Page Six/NYP]
La Lanterna di Vittorio: Adrian Grenier’s date at La Lanterna sampled the house’s signature tipple: a hot toddy made with Jim Bean bourbon, cinnamon, honey, and lime. He was less adventurous and ordered a Sambuca. [People]
Phillippe: Janet Jackson held a private party in Philippe’s wine cellar to celebrate the premiere of For Colored Girls. Guests included Ciara and Chris Tucker, but not sibling La Toya, who was perhaps too busy with Celebrity Apprentice filming. [NYDN]
Popbar: Curb Your Enthusiasm star J.B. Smoove sampled Popbar’s peach pop. [Grub Street]
Sant Ambroeus: Calvin Klein enjoyed a lunch alfresco with a male friend (who wasn’t Nick Gruber). [Zimbio]

The Levee: Ignoring colder weather, Ed Westwick continues to drink and dine out with chest hair aplenty on show again as he played pool at the Williamsburg bar and restaurant. [Gawker]
The Stanton Social: True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten, on a date, started the evening with Don Julio tequila. [People]
Via Dei Mille: In her third appearance this week (future Celebrity Settings roundups may solely feature the omnipresent clan), Kim Kardashian dined out with sister Kourtney, her fiancé Scott Disick, and baby Mason — who’s already working his angles for the paparazzi. [X17Online]
