Celebrity Sighting: Is This It?
On this too freaking cold Saturday (see Lisa’s post below), around 3 pm today, my friend and I were on a mission to find the best Vietnamese Banh Mi (Sandwich) shop in Manhattan.
Our test took us downtown to Chinatown, where we ended up at Banh Mi So 1 on Broome and Mott streets. While biting into the warm and crusty french baguette, I looked out the window and saw 2 members of The Strokes (the lead singer Julian Casablanca and another) walk past the restuarant.
I quickly grabbed my friend and my sandwich and ran outside for a fast picture. One block became three blocks, and before I knew it we were stalking them. The lead singer started to walk in a faster pace, moving his hand to cover his face every few seconds.
Standing at the corner, where I was finally ready to give up, I pulled out my camera phone and ‘pretended’ to take a picture of the street.
Not that anyone bought my lame attempt. That’s when it hit me, I became a celebrity stalker.
Damn the cold for getting to my head.
Even still, I had one of those randomly fun New York moments, following indie rocker boys, on a freezing cold Saturday afternoon.
