Got cash? Go to a Super Bowl bash

It’s Super Bowl week, and celebrities are coming out, sometimes even at parties where “regular” folks can come, too — for a price.

Among a random sampling of events in San Francisco: Sports Illustrated’s VIP party Friday at 1015 Folsom features models Nina Agdal and Samantha Hoopes and rapper Iggy Azalea is musical guest. The cost: a mere $500.

Avicii, Travis Scott and Elle King are appearing at the Rolling Stone party Friday at the Design Center; you can be there, too, for anywhere between $1,000 and $34,000.

Mogul Diddy is having a party Friday at The Grand Nightclub (tickets are listed at $118 to $20,610), while tickets to Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 After Party at the same location with Lil’ Wayne are going for upward of $11,000. (Note: Lil’ Wayne appears at an invitation-only Maxim party Saturday.)

On Saturday, the Boutique Nightclub is the venue for a party hosted by 50 Cent and Chris Brown; tickets on Eventbrite are $8,249.

The 13th annual Leather & Laces event Friday-Saturday at the Metreon boasts talent the likes of actor Jeremy Piven, actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and models Alessandra Ambrosio and Emily Ratajkowski; tickets run from $520 to $25,759.

On Friday, Jamie Foxx will be at Temple nightclub (for a reasonable $75 to $175), while Snoop Dogg pays a visit to the W hotel late night Friday; entry is $65.

As of press time, Snoop Dogg was slated to go through with his Regency Ballroom show Tuesday night, even though TMZ and Twitter were reporting that equipment was stolen from his vehicle late Monday. San Francisco police couldn’t confirm that the stuff belonged to the actor-rapper, but did say that a theft of $9,000 worth of laptops, hard drives, computer monitors, office supplies, a watch, money and thumb drives was reported.


Travel + Leisure’s recent “It List” of best so-called “new” hotels included San Francisco’s Palace Hotel, which is nice — although difficult to understand because its famous guests included tenor Enrico Caruso (there for the 1906 earthquake) and President Warren Harding (who died there in 1923). … Thumbtack, a San Francisco professional services firm, issued a list of the 25 most expensive metro areas to get married, and San Francisco ranked sixth, with the cost of “wedding essentials” at $13,734; San Jose was seventh, with $13,418, and New York topped the list, with $16,077.


Actress Maura Tierney is 51. … Guitarist Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth is 60. … Actor Nathan Lane is 60. … Actress Morgan Fairchild is 66. … Singer Dennis Edwards of The Temptations is 73. … Actress Blythe Danner is 73. … Writer Judith Viorst is 85. … Comedian Shelley Berman is 91.
