  • ALL-STAR CAFE OPENING GETS HOLLYWOOD PREMIERE TREATMENT

         "Entertainment Tonight" profiled the Grand Opening of the
    All-Star Cafe in Times Square.  Shown going into the Hollywood-
    style premiere were CINDY CRAWFORD, SUGAR RAY LEONARD, JOHN
    STAMOS, EVANDER HOLYFIELD, WHOOPI GOLDBERG and DONALD TRUMP.  The
    partners:  WAYNE GRETZKY, SHAQUILLE O'NEAL, KEN GRIFFEY JR., JOE
    MONTANA, MONICA SELES and ANDRE AGASSI (with BROOKE SHIELDS).
    "ET's" Pat O'Brien questioned Joe Montana, on his ravioli.
    Montana:  "They're the best around."  Shaq was shown working in
    the kitchen, displaying his "special" turkey sandwich ("Little
    bit of mayonnaise.  Nice and neat."), and giving a tour of his
    favorite memorabilia in the Cafe -- the basket he broke his
    rookie season and Agassi's ponytail after he cut it off.
    O'Brien:  "Well, you can take your pick of sports metaphors.  You
    can call it a 'Slam Dunk' ... 'Game, Set and Match' ... 'He
    shoots and scores!'  Whatever you want to say, this place looks
    like a real winner" ("ET," 12/20).
