Prime perches 

CELEB SIGHTINGS: Little Rock airport is the prime spot.
  • CELEB SIGHTINGS: Little Rock airport is the prime spot.

Duck in to the Peabody Hotel lobby and pull up one of the huge overstuffed chairs in the bar and you’re sure to spot someone famous before long.

Or so the readers of the Arkansas Times think.

Other good places to see famous folks:

There’s the Clinton Library, where the Big Dog himself occasionally greets the tourists and where the steady stream of big-name speakers at the Clinton School of Public Service just about always make a side trip.

There’s the River Market, an easy stroll from major downtown hotels and thus another visiting fireman magnet.

The Little Rock National Airport is prime people watching territory, period. For oddball fun, station yourself at the foot of the escalator and watch the big-screen TV of incoming passengers as they clear the security checkpoint. Do they know they’re on candid camera?

For night moves and power dining, the Afterthought, Sticky Fingerz, Doe’s and So get favorable mention as places to spot the famous and wannabes.
