Vince Vaughn Takes Chicago

Originally posted 06/23/2004 06:00AM

Vince Vaughn was quite the man about that toddlin' town, Chicago, over the weekend, our spies report. Friday night the Dodgeball star, 34, visited velvet-roped hotspot Y, and then headed over to late-night club Sound-Bar, sipping Jack-and-Cokes throughout. Saturday he treated fans at Wrigley Field to their version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" (singing "Let's root, root, root for the Cubbies") during the seventh-inning stretch of the Cubs-Oakland A's game, and then took in local food-and-music fest Taste of Randolph Street. Later that night he hit yet another club, Le Passage, and returned to both Y and Sound-Bar. Needless to say, female admirers swarmed Vaughn all the while, but he didn't seem to take a shine to any one in particular. Whew! We're tired after just telling you about it.

Bono Watches His Tongue

Originally posted 05/31/2004 06:00AM

Bono issued a warning along with the commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania recently: "Don't get me too excited because I use four-letter words when I get excited," he told the crowd. "The only four-letter word I'm going to use today is 'Penn.' " But he had spoken too soon: "Come to think of it, Bono is a four-letter word," he added. The rock star and activist, who picked up an honorary doctorate of law at the Ivy League school, reminisced about his last visit to the campus seven years ago for a U2 concert. "I was wearing a mirror-ball suit at the time and I emerged from a 40-foot-high revolving lemon," he said. "I guess it was at that point when your trustees decided to give me their highest honor."
