I'm not talking about seeing them on the street but being in their presense sort of speak.
Mine are almost backing my car into George Soros' Bentley last year in the Hamptons.
Performing stand up in college where Adam Sandler before he was Adam Sandler of SNL was on the show. He got booed but he just did his act, I on the other hand got booed but bailed. Never again will I just bail before my time is up. LOL

I was on Judge Judy
I got Sting's autograph by begging and pleading to get me backstage.
I had a long chat with Michael Stipe at the pool at my hotel when I was very young visiting LA and before REM was famous.

What were you on JJ for? Did she yell at you "If it doesn't sound right, it didn't happen!" or something like that. I hope I didn't misquote her lest I get sued. LOL
I saw Sting at Jones Beach 10 years ago. Was it around this time?
Was Stipe somewhat famous at that point with a cult following? Back then there was no internet so it was fan clubs right? I was part of the Icycle Works Fan Club lol

back in 2012 - i was sueing my then BF for pawning my jewelry. I won! He had no case and she started in on him. He was a gonner from the get go.
Sting was in VA area at the time.
I dunno if Stipe was famous then. It was in the early 80s.

1) I was in Miami (South Beach) and went to Joe's Stone Crab restaurant. Our name was called for our table so I approached the hostess stand. While waiting to be shown our table, the hostess yelled out, "Mr. Mason, your table for four is ready!" Low and behold, Jackie Mason walks up next to me to claim his table. I was speechless.
2) While attending one of the Jigsaw Annual Rainmaker Events (ARME) in Vegas, we were staying at the The Wynne. I was waiting in the casino for my fellow "Jiggies" when Vince Vaughn walks right by me. He was hosting the annual NHL awards show at the casino. About 5 minutes later, Matthew Perry walks by. It was quite a night. Unfortunately, I don't remember much else! Other than also meeting and having a drink with Robert Smith of the band, The Cure. Okay, it wasn't really him. Just someone that looked just like him. The dude was a serious "head-case". @Hecko

Here are some of the most notable.
In 1998, at the Las Vegas Big Smoke, I sat with Jim Belushi for a cigar and whiskey tasting one day, and with George Hamilton for a cigar and wine tasting another day. At the same event, I met Carlos Fuente Sr. and Jr., and they gave me a Fuente Opus X cigar as a gift.
In 1982, while in Mexico on a student exchange program, I hung out and traveled with The Harlem Globetrotters for 3 days.
In 1995, while in South Africa on a business trip, I was introduced to Nicky Oppenheimer (of DeBeers Diamonds) at the Royal Johannesburg Golf Club and got to explain the technologies that we were installing in their diamond mines.
In 2011, returning from a conference in Pittsburgh, I met Ty Domi (Toronto Maple Leafs) in the airport check-in. Turns out that we were seat mates on the plane and had a good chat about hockey in the lounge and on the plane.
In 1985, while working at The Second City, I met and partied with several Second City legends like John Candy, Del Close, Lindsey Leese, Frank McAnulty and Andrew Alexander at the Christmas party.

I was waiting in the Valet line at Paris resort in Las Vegas and a black SUV crossed in and cut me off. It was Wayne Newton LOL. This happened just last year.
I was working a trade show in Detroil years ago when I ran into Hulk Hogan in the lobby area. Got a pic with him.
The guitar player from Cheap Trick jumped off stage and danced with me then gave me his pick.
I was in a VIP tent at an outdoor concert when Joe Walsh sat at the table next to us.
Eddie Money signed an old Album cover for me at a concert about 15 years ago.

Here's one on the infamous side
I employed someone who later on became an adult film actress. Since this is a family website I will not reveal her name. She actually attended an event for the old Jigsaw with me.

back in the 90's (singled out days) my grandmother embarrassed jenny mccarthy in a salon by yelling at her (she had no idea who she was) for biting her nails
