Spotted: Murray, Harrelson at The Clermont Lounge

Actors Woody Harrelson, in town shooting the movie “Zombieland,” and Bill Murray, here working on the film “Get Low,” have both been spotted taking in the, um, sights at the Clermont Lounge.

We hear from sources at the legendary Ponce  de Leon Avenue exotic dancing landmark that Murray was enjoying two popular beverages at the infamous dive  bar: Pabst Blue Ribbons and bargain whiskey from the bartender’s well rack.

Alas, we’ve been unable to confirm whether Murray or Harrelson have as yet been treated to a poetry reading/lap dance from Blondie, the club’s most famous dancer.

There’s also been no official response from the actors on how they responded when one young female fan reportedly straddled Murray excitedly while telling him that he reminded her of her dad. Murray gallantly helped the potentially tipsy fan to the exit.

The actors have also been regulars at Loca Luna, the Latin tapas and mojito emporium over on Amsterdam Avenue in Midtown as well.
Overscene

Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman  Antonio “L.A.” Reid was joined by his ex-wife Pebbles at their son Aaron’s “Hello World” listening lounge event at The Loft.
The weekend gathering drew many of the songwriters,  producers and executives who helped launch, maintain and move our current local music scene forward — including Dallas Austin and Kevin Wales (Another Bad Creation), Kawan “K.P.” Prather (T.I.), Courtney “Bear” Sills (112), Chaka Zulu (Ludacris), Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs (TLC) and Christopher Hicks (Johnta Austin).

Quote of the Day

“A lot of women, when they’re young, present themselves in a more sexualized way. And you see Jane Fonda in this period, a little more sexed up, shall we say. And then, once these women start getting nominated for Oscars, they button up every button to the chin. You never see them go there again.”

For some reason Bill Murray drinks cheaper booze. When he comes to Augusta during the Masters, he drinks well booze at the bar at the place he stays. Maybe it is a Hollywood secret on how to keep your money.

Murray was hammered and all over a bunch of young girls a few weeks ago at Loca Luna. He was a hot sweaty old mess.
