Opting to enjoy a rare night out on the town, Kristen Stewart kicked off her weekend by paying a visit to Troubadour club in West Hollywood on Friday (July 9).
Doing her best to go unnoticed, the Bella Swan beauty took cover alongside a security staffer as she headed to a nearby car following a performance by musician pal Bobby Long.
The sighting comes just after it was revealed by Summit Entertainment that “Breaking Dawn" will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Vancouver, Canada beginning this fall.
To be released as two separate films, the first installment of "Breaking Dawn" is slated to hit theaters on November 18, 2011 with no set release date for the final Twilight Saga film.
