Can we eat with Justin Timberlake next time he’s in Boston? The singer feasted on everything from meatballs and buffalo wontons to cannoli and peanut butter ice cream during his stay in Beantown — and chased it all with a beer and four games of bowling with his former *NSYNC bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick.
The “Suit and Tie” singer, who was in town for his concert at Boston’s TD Garden, stopped at Italian favorite Strega Waterfront on Sunday for a meal with pals.
Staffers say Timberlake was in love with Strega’s homemade meatballs, which is the owner’s mother’s recipe. But he didn’t stop there, also ordering scallops al Grand Marnier, lamb chops and homemade cannoli.
“Justin was easy going and super friendly,” his server tells PEOPLE. “A regular guy who likes to have dinner with his friends.” Timberlake also posed for photos with Strega’s owner, Nick Varano.
On Thursday night, Timberlake visited bowling lounge Kings in the Back Bay neighborhood, where he and Kirkpatrick bowled a few games with friends.
“Justin bowled a 173, 142, 94 and 14,” said one Kings employee (not a typo; he must have quit trying), who added that Timberlake sat back and relaxed with a blackened chicken sandwich, buffalo wontons and a Stella Artois beer. For dessert? A peanut butter sundae.
The group, which included Kirkpatrick and his wife, a couple bodyguards and a few friends, stayed at Kings for a few hours. And Timberlake didn’t take off without leaving his mark — he made sure to sign a pin before heading out the door.
