Anyone accidentally run into someone famous?
 
So the wife and kid and I were eating at the Back Porch in Destin last night and the wife goes down to use the restroom. When she came back she said, "there's a guy down by the bar who looks like Rand Paul!" Well lo and behold:

I have seen a couple celebrities out in public before. But then sometimes you feel bad interrupting them.
I did meet Ice Cube at an airport once.

Saw Dave Chappelle at a Cheesecake factory once but he was with his family, so I didn't bother him.

I didn't want to bother Rand, but he was standing at the bar waiting on his table and, while I've met other celebrity types before, this was the first time I was awestruck.

The Walking Dead cast is always out and about here in Senoia/Peachtree City, GA.

You can almost always run into one of them at a random time by the set.

Robert Duval sat like two tables away from me in NY once. He's gansta. Did not bother.

Mike Gordon from phish... not gangsta... made him buy me a drink.

I met Jimmy Carter, but that's because his grandson was in my grade in school.

Cool dude.
Also, my dad used to play with Carlos Santana, so there's that.

They'll film outside of the Senoia area every now and then (like when they used Grady Hospital), but they mostly just stay in the area.

Civil War was also filmed down here in PTC (The Diva RDJ held up traffic on my lunch break which actually made me angry), but I never actually saw/met any of them.

They're down here now for Guardians of the Galaxy, but that's all mostly shot in Pinewood Studios, thank god.
