This past Wednesday, it was announced that Dave Chappelle would be coming to Minneapolis Thursday for a night of comedy. The surprise show brought a crowd to the State Theatre, and the comedian stayed after the show to sign autographs and meet with fans.
However, it sounds like the real Chappelle party went down the night before.
Ran into Dave Chappelle outside my hotel around midnight today (8/2). Hung out at the empty hotel bar for a couple of hours and chatted about this and that. Dave ended up inviting us to a hookah bar / Middle Eastern restaurant, but by the time we arrived, it was closing (2:00AM). The owners were gracious enough to stay open for us and for the next 4 hours it was hookah, drinks, and swapping stories. Haven't slept yet, but what a night...It was a damn good time. Drank at the hotel bar for a while (it was completely empty which made it even better) and then smoked hookah for 4 hours and hammed it up. Went straight from there to the airport, still have yet to sleep, but it was totally worth it.
Sounds like a good time was had by all. You can check out more pics of the evening here.
