SHARE Celebrity sightings range from Jill Biden to Pau Gasol to Christian Siriano

SEEN ON THE SCENE: On the campaign trail, Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, took time out to slip into the River North seafood eatery Kinmont for a bite to eat. … Ditto for Sen. Mark Kirk, joined by a party of 10, spied dining at Harry Caray’s on Kinzie. … The Bulls’ Pau Gasol dined at Joe’s Stone Crab where ex-Bull (for a month) Solomon Jones was spotted separately. … Gasol also made the scene at hot sushi joint Jellyfish, as did “Bar Rescue” star Jon Taffer and his wife, Nicole. … “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano was seen with a large party (including Chicago fashionista Corri McFadden) at Geja’s Cafe, as was (separately) Chicago gourment dining guru and Michelin star maven Grant Achatz of Alinea and Next. Nice to see Achatz loves fondue mecca Geja’s just like the rest of us mere mortals. … As part of Giordano’s Pizza’s 40th anniversary celebrations this fall, three of Our Town’s most adored pro-sports mascots — the Bears’ Staley,the Cubs’ Clark and the Chicago Fire’s Sparky — joined families at a pizza party for Breakthrough Ministries, the group that helps underprivileged communities build connections to better opportunities.
