If you don't know about local downtown MPLS bar gadfly Jake Stone, let me offer a primer. He's the "Fun Director" at Sneaky Pete's (The Ultimate Fun Bar® in case you didn't know), a Locks of Love donor, a Lifetime Fitness worker outer, a straw cowboy hat wearer, and an occasional beads-in-hair-kind-of-guy. Among many, many other things (like muscle shirts). He's the Ultimate Party Dude, hands down. Buddy Casey Brewer theorizes that they keep him in a cage until happy hour and then put him back in at bar close.
Well, we saw him last night. And it went something like this.
CASEY: Fuck me, it's Jake Stone!
JAKE: The Fun Director?
CASEY: Yes, we need a picture. Quick.
JAKE: Ok. Get in there.
(Casey moves in for a Kodak moment.)
JAKE STONE: Boys, can't you see that I'm eating?
JAKE: Sorry Mr. Stone, we'd just like a picture if you could spare a minute.
CASEY: Very sorry, Mr. Stone, just a couple of fans looking for a keepsake.
JAKE STONE: One second.
(Jake and Casey stand around like idiots.)
JAKE STONE: Alright, boys. Let's do this.
Jake Stone. Local celebrity buddy.
