Alas, poor Dan Aykroyd, we sold him well
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.
