Today’s Inside Track brings us the surprising news that Kanye West spent a “wholesome” weekend here in Boston, during which the College Dropout ate at … Cafeteria. West was spotted lunching on calamari, grilled cheese, and tomato soup alongside a bodyguard and a “lady friend.” He also ducked into Pinkberry, where he enjoyed a medium yogurt with toppings. Bor-ing!
It’s funny. When we do celebrity dining round-ups, we often notice that our favorite stars tend to dine at the most predictable of spots. Someday, we’d love to report that West was tracked down crooning at Charlie’s Kitchen at 3 a.m., onion ring grease dribbling down his chin, or that Beyonce was seen hoovering nachos at Rudy’s, or that Tom and Gisele trysted at Peach Farm, downing clams in black bean sauce like the world was about to end. Hasn’t happened yet, though.
Plus, it seems that West didn’t want to be recognized, as he donned a hoodie in a crafty attempt to go “incognito.” But it’s tough to be Kanye West on Newbury Street. Apparently an enterprising Duck Tours driver spotted him and announced via microphone, “We see you, Kanye!”
This would not happen if he dined in Somerville.
