    I've only got a few so far, one I dont count is seeing Steve Wynn last Memorial Day weekend, pretty cool to see a guy like that around a hotel with his name on it, though I've heard he's around quite a bit. Otherwise I've seen Donald Faison (black guy on Scrubs) playing craps at Palazzo next to me, and the one and only Jaleel White, otherwise known as Urkel playing craps one table over from me with a mini-entourage at Encore a few months back.

    ~hasn't ever spotted a celeb in all the trips I've been on to Vegas

    Mind you, I'm oblivious to who's who anymore lol With all the new 20-something celebs, they could walk right by me and I'd never know lol

    What's a celeb? I see "star" poker players and pro athletes quite often on the course: Ivey, Negreanu, Hellmuth, Tiger, Gulbis, the Round Mound, the Maddux boyz, drivers, etc. And what about that wonderful festering mass of semi-humanity that populated NBA ThugFest several years back?? Special. Pat Riley at Canyon Ranch. Or was that Phil Jackson? Probably passed by a lot of folks who are "somebody" and it didn't register or it just went in one and out the other. And let's not forget Anthony Curtis!! Oh, saw Emeril once. Puck a couple times.

    Agreed, Rose doesn't count. Neither does OJ for anyone going the incarceration route.

    Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, Allen Iverson and some other former Georgetown players at Barbary Coast back in the late 90's. I think I read that the owner (at the time) of the BC was a good friend of John Thompson and they used to have a G-Town reunion there.

    Bob Huggins - walking through Bally's back when he was still at UC.

    Montel Williams (is he a celeb? LOL) - almost knocked each other down in MGM one night. Apparently he was running late for a TVKO or HBO fight gig, came around the corner and WHAM! ran right into me.

    Whitney Houston - playing roulette in the Desert Inn back in the early 90's

    John Daly - Bally's

    Pete Rose - Too many times, too many places.

    Penn Jillette - in an elevator at Bally's. Dude is TALL

    Sightings :)

    I am always looking for famous people when we travel. Whether it be in Vegas, Florida, on a cruise, ine the Carribean.... my husband thinks I am too much of a people watcher lol We met Barbara Mandrell a few years back in the Forum Shops when she was performing in Vegas. We saw Pete Rose hustling his autographs in the Forum Shops, at the airport we saw Topher Grace & Danny Masterson form that 70s show, and Mrs Chancellor from the Young & the Restless. Ate at the N9ne Steakhouse twice in the Palms and saw Andre Agassi at the bar eating once, and then Paul Pierce with two other NBA players. I always love to read Norms Confidential in the Review Journal to see who is in town when we are visiting. The night the Celtic players were at N9ne there were other celebritits there the paper said but we missed them......
