We saw Jared from the Subway ads at Fig once. Well, we think it was him. And one time we talked to Lemmy from Motorhead for like an hour at that sushi place that eventually became Ketchup, though we really couldn’t comprehend a word. Sometimes we find ourselves popping up in the same place as our buddy Ron Jeremy (at The Rainbow, not the Rhino). But we never seem to be in the right damn place when some famous genius springs a surprise on a crowd! We’ve never had Usher buy us a drink at WP24, Stevie Wonder has never jumped onstage while were at The Living Room, and we sure as hell have never seen Gwen Stefani spring a secret show on Royal/T, just as the Superstition singer and Harajuku-wannabe respectively did this past week. While we work on our timing, see where celebrities have been eating, drinking, and surprising the bejeezus out of folks in this week’s celebrity settings.
