SHARE Star sightings: Derrick Rose, Corey Crawford, Matthew McGorry

SEEN ON THE SCENE: Perhaps it’s because Derrick Rose is aware that 2015 would have been Frank Sinatra’s centennial year, but the Bulls star opted NOT to sit in the Pump Room’s iconic Booth One, instead slipping into the booth named for “the Chairman of the Board” when he enjoyed a quiet dinner at the Public Chicago eatery the other night. … Among the celebs in town for the grand opening of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Hotel Chicago were Matthew McGorry of “Orange Is the New Black” and “How To Get Away With Murder,” DJ Ryan Hemsworth, Olivia Lopez (“Lust for Life”), Hebru Brantley and Esme Haim. … Among the slew of pro athletes spied recently at RPM Steak were Rose and Bulls teammates Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic, Brandon Phillips of the Cincinnati Reds, the Hawks’ Kris Versteeg, Cubs coach Manny Ramirez, the Bears’ Eddie Royal and the Nashville Predators’ Viktor Stahlberg, who, of course, formerly played for the Hawks. … RPM Italian sightings have included Kris Bryant of the Cubs, the Hawks’ Johnny Oduya and the Predators’ Matt Cullen. … Fans of Corey Crawford were happy to spot the Hawks’ goalie at Three Dots and a Dash.
