Bill Murray is bartending at his son’s new Brooklyn restaurant this weekend (you’re not getting in)
Bill Murray sightings are not uncommon in Brooklyn, though he remains the golden unicorn; a celebrity almost everyone gets excited about seeing in the wild. His son, Homer, is a chef and spent many years at Roebling Tea Room and Bill could be spotted there (and other spots around Williamsburg, like random loft parties) fairly regularly. Homer is now opening his own place, 21 Greenpoint (that’s the address too), this weekend in the old River Styx space and to celebrate his dad is bartending on Friday and Saturday.
Don’t start reorganizing your calendar just yet. Initially, Homer told Eater, “People can walk in; just be nice. What my dad lacks in experience, he makes up for in tequila.” The restaurant backpedaled, however, because everyone in the world wants a drink made by Bill Murray, and they released a statement saying “For overall capacity reasons, this is not an open door event, there will be a guest list.” The public will not be able to get in on Friday and Saturday.”
Of course it never hurts to try.
