STARGAZ­ING AROUND HUB

Boston Herald - - NEWS -

Just call us the Milky Way, be­cause stars abound in Bos­ton. So as this city’s sea­soned stargaz­ers, we’ll gladly fill you in on the big­gest sight­ings from over the past few days.

TWANG HANG

Coun­try mu­sic star Cole Swindell per­formed an im­promptu set at Loretta’s Last Call on Fri­day af­ter­noon. The “Break up in the End” singer dropped by the Lans­downe Street es­tab­lish­ment to grab lunch and shocked the staff when he de­cided to step on­stage to en­ter­tain his fel­low pa­trons with a cou­ple of his hits. We hear that dur­ing his mu­si­cal am­bush, Swindell, who played Worces­ter’s DCU Cen­ter later that evening, said that Loretta’s is his fa­vorite bar in Bos­ton and re­vealed that he had planned the sur­prise per­for­mance all on his own, pick­ing up the gui­tar he was play­ing at a nearby Gui­tar Cen­ter on his way over there. Once the mu­si­cian wrapped his se­ries of songs, he signed the stringed in­stru­ment and left it at the Fen­way joint for “any­one who comes in and wants to pick it up and play some mu­sic.”

GREEN CAR­PET

Ethel Kennedy and her Robert F. Kennedy Hu­man Rights or­ga­ni­za­tion hosted the non­profit’s 29th an­nual star-stud­ded golf tour­na­ment in Hyan­nis­port this week­end. Among the 125 gen­er­ous golfers who joined Mrs. Kennedy and graced the driz­zly links was a share of no­table guests in­clud­ing ac­claimed ac­tors Bill Mur­ray, Chris Tucker, Matt Mc­Coy and Den­nis Hays­bert; former Pitts­burgh Steeler Max Starks; former Red Sox play­ers Jim Lon­borg and Sam Horn; and Mary­land state Rep. Steny Hoyer. The Robert F. Kennedy Hu­man Rights Golf Tour­na­ment raises funds for the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s on­go­ing hu­man rights ef­forts around the globe, and this year’s out­ing man­aged to raise more than $600,000 in do­na­tions.

CATCH OF THE DAY

Ac­tress Jes­sica Chastain was spot­ted on the set of her lat­est movie pro­ject, film­ing right next to the Frog Pond in Bos­ton Com­mon. We’re told that the fa­mous red­head, who’s been busy work­ing on the ac­tion flick “Eve” right here in town, was very friendly and stopped to take pic­tures and sign au­to­graphs for ador­ing fans who were wait­ing nearby.

A RE­LI­GIOUS EX­PE­RI­ENCE

On a re­mote note, lo­cal chefs Michael Schlow and Chris Coombs were ap­par­ently graced by the pres­ence of the Food God while tak­ing part in the New York City Wine & Food Fes­ti­val’s Truf­fle Takeover Din­ner. Jonathan Che­ban — a ma­jor In­sta­gram in­flu­encer who op­er­ates un­der the di­vine alias and is also known for be­ing Kim Kar­dashian’s best friend — hosted the fungi-filled fete and spent plenty of time schmooz­ing with our Bos­ton chef duo and guests.

FAST FOOD

New Eng­land Rev­o­lu­tion striker Juan Agudelo was work­ing with an­other goal in mind as he manned the line at Anna’s Ta­que­ria in the Pru­den­tial Cen­ter on Thurs­day night. The soc­cer player spent a cou­ple of hours sign­ing au­to­graphs and rolling bur­ri­tos for fans at the Mex­i­can take­out joint, invit­ing guests to pur­chase one of his hand­made cre­ations in sup­port of a noble cause. Pro­ceeds from his shift were di­rectly do­nated to the New Eng­land As­so­ci­a­tion for Colom­bian Chil­dren, a char­ity close to Agudelo’s heart be­cause of his lo­cal ties and Colom­bian con­nec­tion.
