Back in the late '90s, I was supposed to meet a friend at Paddy Maguires (dumpy neighborhood bar up the block on 3rd Ave) but didn't make it. The next day he called to tell me Brangelina (although they weren't called that then) had been there all night playing pool and making out. Boom next day it's in the press and THE relationship of the millenium was in full swing.... Nice! That reminds me of the best near-miss I ever had. In Tucson in about '95 I spent practically every weekend at a bar called Suite 102 drinking with the other members of the Active 20/30 Club. This was also around the time when they were filming the movie Tin Cup in town. Of course, on the Saturday following one of the only Friday nights when I decide that I'm too tired to go out, I get a phone call letting me know that Kevin Costner and Don Johnson had come in and hung out all night at the bar with my friends. Apparently they were pretty cool.
