I want to piggyback off of the Family Fame thread below, as I found it an interesting read. I'm fairly surprised that nobody was related to Kevin Bacon, however. So my question is, what celebrities have you carried out a conversation with?
I have had most, if not all, of my celebrity encounters through working at various bars.
I did a shot of Jack with Don Vito from Jackass. A few weeks later, he was in jail for groping some 12 year olds at a shopping mall.
I've met both Pryor and Gordon Gee in the last few weeks. Pryor used to be a regular at my bar until a bounty was placed on his head in Columbus. Gee made a promotional stop at the bar during senior crawl. Before all is said and done, I may end up meeting Gene Smith as well, as the business I've started has been contracted to work an OSU athletics booster event in August.
I worked with a girl who won the Real World Road Rules Challenge, prior to the show actually airing. That was the only season of that show I watched, as it was cool to watch the thing play out knowing she won. She quit pretty promptly after she received her $250,000 (although after taxes, I'm sure it was not that much...).
I've met DMX. A good friend of mine had to take $5,000 out of our cash drawers, put it in a paper bag, and meet him in a motel parking lot before he would perform at our bar. I did not envy that task.
I hung out with Braylon Edwards and Josh Cribbs when Cribbs hosted a private party at our nightclub. Braylon was actually a really cool guy. He did end up getting drunk and walking off by himself down High Street.
