On Saturday Star Trek sequel actors Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine took some time out of their shooting schedule to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. And Quinto revealed their choice of location, tweeting…

Quinto and Pegg also tweeted photos from the evening…

After dinner the boys all packed into their shuttle and drove to San Francisco. Zachary Quinto tweeted the following image saying:

@zacharyquinto: grandma @simonpegg drives us to SF while grandpa pine sits shotgun curmudgeonly.

And on Sunday morning Pegg sent out this image of "the morning after."

And just for the LOLs, Simon Pegg also tweeted this Photoshopped image of Cumberbatch from Saturday night, completing the American effect.

UPDATE: Trek gang on the San Francisco streets. After this article and others about the Trek boys trip to Hooters went viral, Simon sent out the following tweet:

@SimonPegg: I think the highlight of the SP/CP/ZQ/BC late night San Fran road trip, was cruising up Broadway at 3am to the Beasties’ Make Some Noise.

Which he followed up by forwarding this awesome animated gif by @blackmamba1

Hey we do beer and boxing in the UK too! (I’ve never seen a hooters though, so if you guys wanna send a few of those over we’ll kindly oblige.

Great pictures, thanks for that!

LOL at that last one! Thank you, Mr. Pegg!

Yeah, I saw this on Twitter. I thought they were out to just watch the Mayweather fight.

Still, it’s neat how they hung out together.

Anyone that can use the word “curmudgeonly” in a sentence wins my heart!

Hooters…now that is a voyage worthy of a 5 year mission.

“boxing game”

looks like pitchers of Blue Moon.

So they are boldly going where…. everyone has gone before.

Just the fact these guys are hanging out is food for my Star Trek soul. I personally think that the TNG cast liking each other so much is what made their show so amazing.. Likewise I feel this way about this cast..

Some erstwhile filker is going to have to rework the lyrics of “Banned From Argo” into “Banned from Hooters” with the new cast.

Nice to see they all get on. The cast chemistry is certainly a high point of the JJverse.

Clearly in the Alt Universe…. Commander Scott rather than Marla McGivers goes off with Khan to conquer Ceti Alpha Whatchamanumber! What a cute supercouple! :)

This is cute. :-) Just caught Sherlock for the first time last night, and I’ll be a regular viewer from now on. Great show!

Oh… Hooters would work so well in the UK.

Why the need of disguising Cumberbacht as a “True Kick Ass American” when he is celebrating a Mexican holiday?

Oh the politically correct among us must be appalled that the guys couldn’t find some more culturally enlightened event to attend….

LOL! :) Looks like they had a great time! Awesome pics! :)

17. That America Cumby photoshop was created earlier in the day by a few women on tumblr who were joking around about the British tumblr fans wanting him home and the Americans wanting him to stay here. A few people apparently managed to actually get Pegg to look at it in a tweet so he tweeted it himself.

Not that it matters, but the close up of Pegg/Cumby was actually taken on Saturday, after Cumby had tweeted from Pegg’s account on Friday but they said they couldn’t send a picture then because they were in costume. Still there’s something odd going on in the back of Cumby’s head (hood? extensions?) in that one and he did mention having weird plastic hair extensions in an interview last week.

@15 And not a particularly ‘widely elebrated in Mexico’ holiday, at that.

Meant to direct that last post at 15. not 17.!

I like the beanie hat to hide the Spock bowl-cut.

pimf. “celebrated”

Hooters is always a great starting point for a guys-night-out.

lol omg these are brilliant. and I think we have found a new subtitle for the movie! Mission To Hooters!

Gee. From the Brewery to Hooters. Ate least Simon is truly upholding on of Mr. Scott’s better know personality characteristics.

That’s Awesome!


You’ll find very few Mexicans in Mexico celebrating Cinco De Mayo. It’s almost entirely limited to the United States.

Boxing game.

A real fight aficionado, there.

I hope they had fun. That picture at breakfast looks like an order of hangover with a side of queasy.

We’ll take any reason to party, celebrated holiday or not.

It’s great that they go out together though!

Hooters. Are you serious?

Oh and….

Here is the true meaning of the holiday:

Most people don’t know that back in 1912, Kraft mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and eagerly awaited its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course as… Sinko de Mayo.
True Story.

I’m sure they go to Hooters for the food, just like I read Playboy for the articles!

Khan Noonien Soran

Mr. Quinto…should that be boxing “match”?

#27. sean

Didn’t know that… lol

Quinto is one of the few people telling the truth when he says he goes to Hooters for the food.


THX, you deserve a multi-stroke dull-bladed Game of Thrones-style beheading for that one.

Fun times! Perhaps such camaraderie will bleed over into the film.

Star Trek: The Rise of Khan!

Looked like a blast.

36. Ironic, since the food at Hooters isn’t that great.

40. The joke is that ZQ is gay. So obviously he ain’t going for the “Hooters”.

Also caught Sherlock for the first time last night, and I have to say, it will be hard not to think “Sherlock vs. Kirk…HMMMMM” when I’m watching the movie.

Manboobs, finally getting the support they need! :))

If you’re detecting some jealously here… you’d be right! [laughs]

It was a matter of time when the “gay” issue would come up. Gee guys give it a rest.

@41. Actually the wings are pretty good. The wife and I hit the one near home on occasion.

Glad to know that drinking and driving and celebrities still go together.

Montalban was Mexican, this holiday is celebrated by Mexicans… this holiday ALSO celebrated by BC ergo, BC MUST BE KHAN.

Sorry had to beat RDL (lunatic) to the punch :)

44. No issue, just saying. :)

45. I hate their wings, too vinegar-y. I like Wing Stop wings, with fries and cheese and dinner rolls with ranch dressing…. and this is why I work out daily. XD

Just saw season 2 premiere of Sherlock last night. It was delicious. Love Benedict, he’s awesome…and very….very….very easy on the eyes
……….sorry was I saying something?

So, does Cumby hang truck nuts off his Bentley?
