• New parents Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz stepped out for a low-key date night at Piccolo, a small restaurant in Venice, Calif. The two managed to stay under the radar during their quiet meal, though they weren’t afraid to be affectionate with each other. “They were being cute and lovey-dovey,” a fellow diner tells us.

• New BFFs? Zac Efron and Glee’s Mark Salling headed out with a group of guys to SHG’s Eden, a new L.A. club, for a post-midnight party. The guys made their way through the crowd, chatting up fellow revelers, then checked out an impromptu performance by of the Black Eyed Peas. Efron and Salling moved closer to the deejay booth to dance and get a better view.

• Ali Fedotowsky, flashing her sparkler during dinner with close friends at newly opened Beauty & Essex in New York. The former Bachelorette star sipped cocktails and dined on specialties like oven-braised chicken meatballs. Earlier in the week, Ashley Olsen popped in for a glass of wine and dinner with friends.

• Orlando Bloom, having a quiet conversation with a male friend on the patio at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont. Could the new dad be tired from late nights with son Flynn? According to an onlooker, he was yawning during his low-key night and sipping bottled water. When it was time to go, Bloom’s friend picked up the check, and the guys shook hands before going their separate ways.
