Star sighting

Well, I had lunch with actor Ted Danson Wednesday at Cantina Laredo. (Famous for his role in "Cheers," he is making "Mad Money" here.)

No matter that he was two booths ahead of me and lunch partners Dixey Thornton and Harvey Anne Leimbrook. It was the first time any of us had actually spotted a "star" out and about. (Although I had interviewed Danson at a Robinson Film Center party earlier in May.)

He slipped in, sat with his back to us, had lunch, talked on the cell and was on his way. (He drives a navy blue sporty Nissan SUV.)

He has dined at the Cantina three days in a row, but has been in four times and always by himself. He doesn’t eat meat, so always orders something simple like a garden salad with black beans.

And, I was impressed that no one bothered him, but let him eat his lunch in peace.

He is also a fan of Columbia Cafe and Sunshine Health Food Store.

I wonder if he has tried Earthereal. It is a quaint vegetarian spot on Line Avenue where a lot of trendies stop by for veggie sandwiches, salads or the daily special — always prepared with the freshest of ingredients. My menu fave: Earthereal’s gazpacho.

... Actors Samuel Jackson, Ed Harris and Andy Dick have also stopped the Cantina.
