The river was dyed green for St.Paddy's Day. Andrew's in town from New York, what a cold gorgeous sunny day we enjoyed.
Standing with the heads of industry.
Ladies, this is Marco. He is single and works every night here at the Billy Goat Tavern except Saturdays and Mondays. Made the best vodka and tonic I've had in ages.
This is the place that inspired the sketch on Saturday Night Live, "cheeseborger cheeseborger, cheeseborger". I guess when the orginal cast from Second City Comedy was in Chigago they must have come here...lots of press people have made this place their lunch time hangout...Roger Ebert included.
Take note, ladies, Marco has talents, he took this photo for us.
Andrew was taken by the beat cop on the Segway, we stopped to visit. We were on our way, between drink stops, to find me a copy of Barefoot In The Park with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford. It was on tv, as we left the house and I was laughing so hard, I said we gotta get a copy. (more on that later)
He is showing off and doing spins. He can moonwalk. He fell when he first was assigned the beat, and broke both his wrists, was in recovery for four months!
I asked the cruiser cop, "Be honest, you all are really embarassed by the Segway cops right?" He laughed and said" I was at first, but now I'm okay with it. They are great in a crowd and people really respond to them."
Football is a religion here, see the Budweiser tap handle is a football player in brass.
