So it's Friday, and you're facing the brutal truth: The relatives aren't going home any time soon.

Fear not, the Ministry is here to help. We have a list (in the form of a photo gallery) of a few off-the-beaten-track sites celebrities have been known to frequent.
We can't guarantee you'll see George Clooney or Megan Fox during your trek, but we can offer some roll-of-the-dice spots where we've caught glimpses of the stars. Check it out -- and leave us a comment sharing your favorite spot to see celebrities.
