“Desperate Housewives” star Teri Hatcher was spotted in the South End last weekend. The actress was at Boston Chops, where she feasted on a 14-ounce ribeye with mushrooms and asparagus (washed down with a Ketel One martini with olives.) Before departing, Hatcher took a pic with server John Gould and Boston Chops owner Brian Piccini. . . . Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman dined at Legal Harborside. . . . Restaurateur Donato Frattaroli, state Representative Aaron Michlewitz, and City Councilor Sal LaMattina were among the familiar faces at the Taste of the North End’s 13th annual bocce tournament the other night. . . . Two New York Yankees — CC Sabathia and Didi Gregorius — were seen dining along with Red Sox infielder Yoan Moncada at Pauli’s in the North End on Friday. . . Josh Levin of Northeastern University made it to the final round of “American Ninja Warrior,” but alas, did not win — and he was in good company, because none of the other contestants completed the course, either. Levin, who’s a professional rock climber, described being on the show as “exhausting,” and said he did it to honor of his coach, Stacey Collver, who’s in need of a double lung transplant. He used his time in the limelight to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation and encouraged viewers of the show to register as organ donors at www.donatelife.net. Although he said competing on the show was tough (“It’s much, much more difficult than you expect it to be,” he said), Levin is looking forward to trying to win again next season. “I’ll be back,” he said.
