What were you up to last night? Probably not playing Ghostbusters pinball with Dr. Peter Venkman, a.k.a. Charleston’s favorite celebrity Bill Murray. If you had stopped by downtown funhouse The Alley for some bowling, beers, or Skee-Ball, you might have spotted Murray autographing the game.
Owner Jimmy Poole explained the bar’s relationship with the superstar in a previous interview about The Alley’s three-year anniversary:
A testament to how cool The Alley is, everyone's favorite actor Bill Murray has been a regular since before it officially opened. It's not something the co-owners really publicize, but through a friend of a friend, Murray visited prior to The Alley opening, tried some wings and boiled peanuts, and can be spotted in social media shares at the location ever since. "We don't really know when he might pop in, but we treat him like a regular guest," says Poole.
