YE WAVERLY INN: The New Celebrity Hot Spot, Anne Hathaway's Hide-Out

The Confessions Continue: Ye Waverly Blog: Bank Street Grows Bulb-ous. This place really helped me make up my mind about the future of shooting celebrities. I spent a good time hanging out here waiting for them to enjoy their dinner. In the warmer months you wait on the sidewalk, as people are enjoying themselves at the outdoor tables while you cool your heels waiting for the next best shot. For my friends it works for them, because they are there every night they catch the people they need to, for me, its a crap shot and I sometimes feel that I should be sitting there eating a $15 hamburger with friends. I found this on the Vanity Fair website today, which is what prompted me to write about Ye Waverly Inn...As the sun set and night fell, Emil, the manager at the Waverly, noticed something curious through the barroom windows: In addition to the usual trio of die-hard paparazzi who never seem to leave the corner, there was a veritable encampment of fotogs forming outsideā€”a Hooverville of unwashed shutterbugs! The Waverly Inn is the equivalent to The Ivy in Hollywood. If you are a celebrity, you don't go to this place for the food, you go here to get photographed by the paparazzi. Here is Anne Hathaway and her boyfriend who eat here practically every night. Below is Ali Larter exiting the place. As Ali got closer to me I can't saying "I'm from Cherry Hill, I'm from Cherry Hill", to no avail as I wanted to get that smile, wave and acknowledgement. She is gorgeous in person. On this particular night Patrick Stewart was exiting with his younger, more hair girlfriend. He's in town as he is performing on Broadway in Macbeth. It was cool to see him in person. To get a shot like this, a photographer has to walk backwards. It was trash night and one of the guys fell on his ass. Sad thing is, the shot of Patrick is not a big seller, so it probably wasn't worth the pain.
Jay-Z sneaking out the back. He must think he is all that, the truth is his photo is not worth crap. I was one of three out of the 15 paps that bothered to shoot him. The only this someone wants him for is to ask him what Beyonce is up to. The funny thing is that these two frequent this spot a lot. Maybe they think the food is good, or I guess its the company. Anne Hathaway departs and makes an angelic pose towards her mother who I later see is standing behind me.

Oh, is that what that pose was about? I remember you said she held it for like 10 seconds or something.

Nice work on Patrick Stewart. I got him here at a premiere in London a few months back. He gave me the dirtiest look ever! Apparently he used to yell at the fans at stage door 'Who told you you could take a photo of me!?!'. Thankfully, the worst I ever got was a nasty stare... because he was being interviewed at the time.

Mariah's in town from today. I need to go find her...
