Brush with celebrity — Dan Aykroyd was in our town today

Alright, alright, I’ll admit that the term “brush with celebrity” would be a bit of an exaggeration. We didn’t get to brush by him by any means. However, we were damn close.

Dan Aykroyd cofounded a new business called Crystal Head Vodka, an ultra-premium vodka produced in Newfoundland, Canada. It’s supposed to be pure. How pure?

The entire process of creating Crystal Head Vodka is resoundingly PURE at heart – from the high quality grain to the pristine waters of Newfoundland, Canada. Crystal Head is quadruple distilled, then filtered seven times, of which three are through semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer Diamonds. No glycol, citrus oil or added sugars are used in the making of Crystal Head Vodka.

Be that as it may, I won’t opine on how pure it is. I will state as fact that Dan Aykroyd was in our town to promote his vodka business by signing the boxes/cartons of whoever could get in through the door at our local Bottle King. The line was out the door, and we Ipes had a very busy day ahead with a tight schedule, so there was no time for nonsense like standing around on line. Too bad. However, we did have time to stop by the Bottle King to grab a peak at Dan Aykroyd while he signed away. We were close — he wore all black and wore a baseball cap. Oh well. We bought two bottles of wine while we were there, and checked out a replica Ecto-1, which was kinda neat too. In the evening, the kids and I watched 1984’s blockbuster film Ghostbusters, starring none other than Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Rick Moranis. Uh, perfect time, if you ask me.
