I don't know how you all even recognize celebs. I never realize until afterward who they are.

I once spent 20 minutes in Sephora discussing lipstick colors with Drew Barrymore and never realized it was her until I walked out of the store.

Duh.

I guess I should have added a constructive comment. I've seen celebrities all over town doing the same things that the rest of us do. I've never staked these people out nor planned to "celebrity spot" but they tend to live in neighborhoods like Soho and Tribeca where we often dine.

Some sightings, Eric Clapton reading a book at a shop on Astor place circa 1991, Mick Jagger at the now defunct Louisiana Bar & Grill watching a phenomanal zydeco band Loup Garou, David Byrne of the Talking Heads having dinner at Il Buco in the Village, multiple NBC news personalities walking near RockCenter, Christie Brinkley at a Yankee game.

GoTravel, I'm ashamed of you . I've got the quickest eyes in the west. Once recognized Harrison Ford from the back>/i> of his head as I entered a restaurant. Saw Drew Barrymore standing in the pouring rain in Kauai once in Hanalei.

Here's a sort of interesting story. One Sunday we ate brunch at Rachel's on 9th Avenue. My partner and I had a very nice table for four, although there were two of us. Just as we were about to leave, Rosie O'Donnell and partner entered for brunch. By then the place was packed and they were about to be seated at a tiny table for two wedged between other diners. When the hostess saw we were getting up from our table, she offered Rosie that one. "No" she said. "These people look nice, we'll stay right here." Boy was I impressed!

Supposedly lots of celebs eat at DaSilvano's and Bar Pitti on 6th av between Bleecker and Houston (both with outdoor dining). I walked by there a million times and never recognized anybody, but my teenage daugher has seen Kate Hudson and some other actors that do teen tv. Lot's of celebs do live in the village area and I have seen some ont the street, in the playground, at the greenmarket, etc.

Hey Ryan,
She did mention her address once on Live with R&K, I just can't remember. And you could find out my address if you knew my name.

Jackie O in an elevator, just the two of us. I managed not to request an autograph, gasp, gawk, take a picture or get a snip of her hair. We talked, like any two normal people. Hey, they put on thongs under their minks just like you and me.

Yes, but I'd consider it really creepy to show up outside the home of someone I didn't know personally.

My daughter and walked down a SOHO street with David Bowie and his daughter (I think)
We were careful to NOT make him feel too uncomfortable. There were punk types talking to him and then following him and he looked really nervous. He walked a few blocks next to us and we let him get a little ahead of us and took a photo from behind.
Funny... it still looks like him.
I just feel it is very intrusive to bother people when they are not "on" if you know what I mean. I am sure they fear for their children... especially
those who have a kooky following.
I heard there is a Barnes and Noble that attracts a regular famous crowd.

I must admit, I've never ever put on a thong under my mink!

I think Blacktie/aisleadjoining
/oddscreennames.. would wear his thong under his mink so he expects the rest of us to live up to his standards, as weird as they are

Ryan: "Yes, but I'd consider it really creepy to show up outside the home of someone I didn't know personally."

I don't want to show up at her home, don't want to talk to her, don't want to stalk her, don't want to send her anything, in short: I don't want to do anything that the Pope or the Dalai Lama would consider immoral or that any law of this world would consider illegal. It's just extremely important for me to get that information. Whatfor? I can't tell. But if you or anybody else happens to know it I'd be very grateful if you could help me. It's up to you if you trust me. If not I'll have to ask somebody else. Please contact me via E-Mail: [email protected]

Uhhh....this is even creepier. I feel the need to warn Kelly Ripa to be on the lookout.

Possibly threads like this one need to be deleted by fodors, they lead to zip of travel interest, but apparently attract all sorts who've overlooked their morning meds.

LOL, this thread is bizarre!
tpog and blacktie/aisleadjoining should have coffee together and work out their new stalking techniques!
But I really hope someone takes photos of at least one of them, showing up in his black shoes, black socks and mink coat with only a thong underneath!
What a hoot!
