Bill Murray’s Spontaneous Bartending at SXSW 2010

I had missed this at the time, but one of the bartenders at San Francisco’s fine rum bar Smuggler’s Cove just told me a funny story about Bill Murray impulsively getting behind the bar at crowded Austin drinking establishment Shangri-La during this year’s South by Southwest festival. Apparently no matter what drink a person requested, Murray would hand them a tequila shot. And sure enough, the internet has the proof!

I randomly caught Bill Murray pouring shots of tequila and whiskey for a bunch of excited hipsters (like us) at Shangri’la in Austin. He then went and chilled with GZA in the corner while we all whipped out our iphones to tweet about it.
