Malia Obama once again attended Lollapalooza, held over the weekend at Chicago’s Grant Park. But she wasn’t the only high-profile person roaming the city. Many Chicago restaurants entertained festival performers and other celebrities in town for the music. Here’s a brief rundown of where they were hanging out. Check out last year’s happenings here.

— While music fans were excited to see former Jane’s Addiction singer and festival founder Perry Farrell perform with the Foo Fighters on Thursday at the Metro, Farrell fueled up at Summer House Santa Monica in Lincoln Park before the gig. A Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises rep said he ate a prime ribeye steak.

— After rains on Thursday cancelled her set, Lorde brought a group of 20 for dinner at Three Dots and a Dash in River North. It’s unknown if she enjoyed any tiki drinks, as she’s 19 years old. But it’s fair to point out that she’s from New Zealand where the drinking age is 18.

— Nico Segal of The Social Experiment and a friend ordered lobster ravioli, a Brussels sprouts salad, a Tuscan kale salad, crispy roasted chicken, lobster fra diavolo, plus three orders of cheesecake to go over at RPM Italian in River North.

Killer Mike was over at Emporium Arcade Bar in Logan Square and sipped on Stay Gold, a collab beer from Pipeworks Brewing Co. He was also wearing a Cubs hat and posted some shenanigans from Irie Jerk Bar and Grill in Lakeview. Mind the language in the video.

Nellcote off Randolph Restaurant Row continues to be a favorite for Lolla performers. A rep said Temples stopped by on Tuesday night and Foster the People was there on Thursday. Hippo Campus, White Reaper, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and Barns Courtney also visited, according to a restaurant rep.

Brandi Cyrus — Miley Cyrus’ older sister — played a DJ set at the Hard Rock Hotel downtown.

The Tribune reported that Danny Masterson (That ‘70s Show) and wife Bijou Philips where at at Cafe Spiaggia with their son on Tuesday.

— Olympic gold-medal winning snowboarder Shaun White enjoyed some Chubby Wieners. He’s not training anymore, so he can enjoy some cheese fries from Chubby’s Lolla stand. The hot dog stand is based out of Lincoln Square.
