What a way to end the day.
I was enjoying dinner with friends at Joe Allen, a great little restaurant in the theater district, when actor Rob Lowe walked in. The restaurant was nearly empty because it was too early for most of the after-theater crowd.
Lucky us that “Spring Awakening,” the play we had just seen, started at 7 instead of 8 p.m. The early bird gets a surprise.
I see celebrities all the time at Fashion Week in New York. Most of them are women, except for the male rappers and the I-think-he-looks-familiar television actors. I’m rarely star struck. And I wasn’t tonight.
I will say that Rob Lowe is really, really handsome. My friend called him gorgeous. He was dressed in a white shirt and suit. No tie. He looks even better in person than he does on “Brothers & Sisters.”
Seeing him was like getting a rich, decadent dessert for free.
