Supermodel does Gibsons . . .


Former supermodel/talk show host Tyra Banks taped "Oprah" Thursday, but instead of heading to the Gold Coast for lunch, she opted to dine at the Gibsons in Rosemont. Wearing jeans and trenchcoat, staffers said she looked fabulous (but of course!), and only chowed down on shrimp cocktail and a tomato and goat cheese appetizer.

And speaking of Gibsons, sister restaurant luxbar is the place to be for the annual St. Patrick's Day benefit for Misericordia. Head to the top floor for the buffet (filled with Sliders, chicken fingers and more), $2 green Bud Light drafts, $4 Jameson shots, and tastings of 12- and 18-year Jameson. That party happens 1-4pm March 14. $10.
