He’s been rumored to crash weddings, steal French fries at fast-food joints, and tend bar in Brooklyn. In short: Actor Bill Murray, 66, is everywhere. He was spotted this past weekend crashing a Brooklyn restaurant’s opening night celebration, where he quickly became the life of the party, according to Page Six. Cecconi’s in DUMBO has views of the riverfront, where Murray was seen strolling before meandering in to join the party, at which the wine and spaghetti were plentiful.
“He was seen walking along the waterfront with a group of friends earlier in the night towards the carousel,” a partygoer told Page Six. “He must have seen the party going on, because a while later, he came back and joined the party, where the drinks and lobster spaghetti had been flowing free all night.”
Murray apparently mingled with invited guests and encouraged people to visit his son’s new restaurant in Greenpoint, 21 (the spot where he had tended bar).
“I live a little bit on the seat of my pants, I try to be alert and available,” the actor previously said of his spontaneous intermingling with people in places where he was not (necessarily) invited. “We’re in this life, and if you’re not available, the sort of ordinary time goes past and you didn’t live it.”
