People watching?

What is the best place to do it? I vote for on a patio of a beachfront house bordering on a busy bike/pedestrian path. Or one of the many places that can make you feel better about yourself, such as a monster truck rally.

Any other people watching people out there?

Denny's 2:00am or a Farmers/Flea Market
Dishonorable mentions would be Casinos and public Bingo halls

10+ points more for Southern locations.

My best friend's grandmother's wake. In the back room where it's possible I'll get caught.

I don't mind people watching...it's the pointing and laughing that bothers me.

I spend a lot of time in airports. Admission can be a little pricey but it is an ever updating display of humanity that runs the spectrum from beautiful people to freaks.
