Overheard in Union Square yesterday...



I helped out our dog behaviorist, during the ASPCA festival held in Union Square yesterday, from 4-8 p.m. Seen and overheard at the Square (I had help with the "overheard" part):

At around 4: 45 p.m., Sandra Bernhard walks through the Square. A fan approaches her and says, "Oh, Ms. Bernhard, I love your work!" Ms. Bernhard replies, "Yeah. Well, I can't talk right now. I gotta get to work." It turns out "work" for Ms. Bernhard was directly across the street, where she is performing in "Everything Bad and Beautiful" at the Daryl Roth Theatre.

Richard Belzer shows up at the dog behaviorist's table. I nudge the dog behaviorist to let her know she has a guest with questions. Turns out the behaviorist was talking to Linda Dano. Dano says, "Oh hi, Richard! I had no idea you'd be here!" Piccolo mondo.

A blonde in dark glasses with her dog, approaches my friend and his dog. Blonde in dark glasses has deep, raspy, smoking voice. Her dog is very big and very enthusiastic. Her dog's name is Bruno. I cannot tell who she is, but the girl is stylin' - sort of. She talks with us for 15 minutes. After which we realized it was Tara Reid.

Finally, Bernadette Peters shows up. Yes, this is all happening in front of Whole Foods at the Square. She looks young without her face looking like an army sheet stretched from corner to corner. Ms. Peters has actually allowed herself to acquire wrinkles. And she looks beautiful. She stepped inside the ASPCA-mobile to view the cats. Everyone was respectful of her space.

Since this is an edu-blog, I will share what I learned: Hanging out in Union Square on a sunny day is fun. I need to do it more often.

...LaMai apologizes. The celebrities mentioned were B and C-listers, except for Bernadette Peters. And Richard Belzer. And Linda Dano. And Tara Reid. And of course, Sandra Bernhard is not a B-list celebrity.

And "howdy" to the Bernadette Peters fans!
