Living in the Keys for about 10 years, I have had my share of "well known" people.
Back in 1989, I waited on 2 members of Guns N Roses in Islamorada, at the Holiday Isle.
Kurt Russell while in living in Marathon (1990 I think), and Katie Couric in Islamorada at The Lazy Days' restaurant.
Kurt came in kinda late afternoon, weekday, when it was slow. So, not many people were around. He asked for a quiet table away from anyone, and was wearing shades.
I think that was when Goldie was filming a movie in Key West. I cannot remember the name of it.
Some of them don't make a big deal of their presense, except for Katie Couric, as she had requested a more private table, as she was with her 2 kids, and nanny. (time frame-1997-98)
It was cute. There was a band playing that night, and the nanny and the 2 kids were out dancing away with everyone else.
All were unpretentious and nice as can be.
I used to work for baseball player and then coach, Davey Johnson. I think he was with the Mets then, or maybe the Red's--He was part-owner of the Lorelei in Islamorada.
He got married "again" at the restaurant beach area and many many celeb's were there, but most of them were in a cordoned off to the public area.
The only one that mingled with the "regular folk", was Maury Povich. He wanted to watch a golf game that was on the TV at the cabana bar.
People came up to him and he signed autographs and was just as polite as can be. There were so many well known people at that wedding, I cant remember them.
Many famous people come to the Lorelei, and I am sure they still do. They host a major fishing tournament every year.
It kinda was old hat seeing them around.
George Bush was a regular during fishing tourneys, and my old BF had to drive Norman Schwartzkauf (sp?) somewhere.
THis was in 1997.
So, that is my cross with the star's..
( I did get Kurts autograph on a menu, but someone stole it from me!)
Bottom line, is you treat them like the rest of your customers...
