Star Maps: Something's Fishy

Piven, Cusack and hungry footballers make the rounds

    Piven was sidelined from "Speed the Plow" last December after suffering mercury poisoning from bad sushi.

    Like Dustin Hoffman counting toothpicks, NBCChicago savant-ticiously tracks celebs. Star Maps is our weekly rundown of A-D-listers making the rounds in Chicago. Read on, judge harshly.

    Although there was a drastic drop in a-listers this week, we still spied a few Hollywoodies around town, and still witnessed a few bizarre happenings.
    First up on the list of hot topics is actor Jeremy Piven, who -- gasp -- ate a piece of whitefish at Gibson’s last week. Hmm, fish-free eh? Doesn’t look like it. Maybe he has an upcoming commitment he wants to get out of.
    Then we spied athletes partying P Diddy style -- what else is new? Among them were Jay Cutler and Greg Olsen celebrating teammate Greg Olsen’s wife's birthday at 33 Club, and Brian Urlacher over-indulging in comfort food at Bull & Bear. He feasted on some Kobe beef sliders, boneless wings, and a grilled cheese sandwich with some tomato soup, to name a few items.
    Also out on the town was actress Joan Cusack livin’ it up at the Happy Dog book party at the Hotel Allegro.
