Hef Off the Bunny Trail

Hugh Hefner made a rare public appearance yesterday -- without his entourage of stacked blonde babes!

TMZ found the aged Playboy off the Mansion grounds, the only nearby Playboy Bunnies being the ones emblazoned on his fashionable t-shirt.

When told that "Desperate Housewives" hottie Eva Longoria was in the limo just a few feet away, Hef didn't seem all that star struck ... although the lack of enthusiasm might be blamed on his hearing.
