Running Into Celebrities While Traveling

While we were in NYC this past weekend, we ran into Mary Louise Parker (currently the main character in Showtime’s Weeds) at Joe Coffee in the West Village.  Now, Joe is tiny, room for about 12 people or so it’s not hard to notice.  And there she was with her two kids.  We aren’t the type to say anything or or go up to anyone.  They have a right to their privacy and why shouldn’t they be able to live a “normal” life?  As we watched her walk off, we thought about all of the other famous people we’ve seen on trips.  Now, we realize that “famous” or “celebrities” are different to everyone, but here’s our list of who we’ve seen and where we’ve seen them:

  • Sean Hayes (Jack on Will & Grace) – at a cafe in Kensington in London a few blocks from Harrod’s
  • John McEnroe (Retired Professional Tennis Player) in a pilates class we attended during our stay at Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos
  • Patty Smyth (Lead Singer of the 80’s band, Scandal) also in a pilates class at Parrot Cay.
  • Jerry Springer (Talk Show Host) in the lobby at The Hyatt in Chicago
  • Lindsey Davenport (Professional Tennis Player) having lunch at the Four Seasons Jimbaran in Bali
  • Jamie Oliver (Celebrity Chef) shopping at Hugo Boss at London Heathrow
  • Neil Patrick Harris – (How I Met Your Mother, Doogie Howser MD) – at a friends wedding
  • Rick Barry – (Retired NBA Player) – at a friends wedding
  • Alice Cooper – (Rock star) – at baggage claim at LAX
  • Joan Baez – (Folk Singer) – sat in front of us on a flight from SFO to JFK
  • Kris Kristofferson – (Actor/Singer) – sat in front of us on a flight from  ICT to DEN
  • The Fray –  at dinner at Z Cuisine in Denver, one of their favorite restaurants (and one of ours)
