Alas, poor Dan Aykroyd, we sold him well



Danaykroyd Dan Aykroyd shills his Crystal Head Vodka at the Blue Martini for a meet­and- greet and signing on Friday night. It was part of a four-stop drop-in around the Tampa Bay area — also including MJ’s, The Venue and the Fox Jazz Club — promoting his new drink. He was two hours late to his first stop, MJ’s, because rumor had it he stopped at Sea World and Cape Canav­eral before heading to Tampa.

His bus pulled into the International Plaza valet lot at 12:40 a.m. (his Blue Martini stop was scheduled for 9 p.m) and Aykroyd was brought in through the kitchen, pausing to take a photo with the waitresses he surprised. Aykroyd then headed to a roped-off corner booth, where he signed autographs and took photos with fans — the ones still waiting for him, anyway.
