Dan Aykroyd At ABC Fine Wine & Spirit’s – Orlando Florida 3/10/12

 

 

 

Yesterday afternoon I drove out to ABC Fine Wine & Spirits in Orlando Florida to meet the one and only Dan Aykroyd. I figured this would be something fun, and when the heck would I ever have another chance to meet the SNL legend? Probably never. So, I gathered what Dan Aykroyd memorabilia I could find in my house, threw on my old Ghostbusters t-shirt and got on the road.

When I got to the place where the event was being held, just a few people were standing around outside, and I was able to get a parking spot close to the door. But, the line was already to the door, and everyone seemed to be crammed in. I got in line, waited, and waited, and waited; luckily, I spotted a friend and we chatted it up in line for a while.

I took a few pictures while I was in line. I didn’t want to get out of line for fear of losing my spot and an opportunity to meet Dan Aykroyd. Most of these pictures just look like a huge line, which is totally what it is, but they are all at random, different points of time in line. Of course, I also have pictures of Dan…well, as close as I could get to him between before and after I met him. So, here ya go; these are the pictures from Saturday’s Dan Aykroyd signing at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.

    Do you have a link to the photos that were taken by the “professional” photographer at the store?

      Did you try the store’s website? I’m assuming the professional photographer worked for the store.
