Hey all you fans of Bio-Dome and Big Momma's House 2: Word is that actor Stephen Baldwin and model/actress Christina Lindley are going to attend the Sept. 4 grand opening of Pocket 8's Sushi & Grill.
Owner Jerry Yang, who was the winner of the 2007 World Series of Poker, told reporter Jonah Owen Lamb that the two celebrities and poker buffs would be at the opening of the North G Street restaurant.
Baldwin, younger brother of actors Alec and Billy, last appeared on NBC's reality television show "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!"
Lindley has appeared in Playboy and Maxim magazines, and acted in Big Momma's House 2 with Martin Lawrence.
Lamb is working on a story for Monday's Sun-Star about the opening of the restaurant. Until that appears, you can check out the plans for the restaurant here: http://media.mercedsunstar.com/smedia/2009/07/30/12/pocket8.source.prod_affiliate.111.pdf
UPDATE: I got a confirmation from Lindley, over Twitter, that she'll be at the Sept. 4 event: "absolutely I will be there with bells on. Jerry Yang is one of my fave peeps and closest friends so wouldnt miss it :)"
Apparently she's going to have bells on.
