Bill Murray is bartending in Greenpoint this weekend

Bill Murray's no stranger to bartending—he infamously popped up with Wu Tang Clan at Austin bar Shangri-La during SXSW 2010 and spontaneously started pouring nothing but tequila shots for the bar's patrons.

This weekend (Friday 16 and Saturday 17, starting at 7pm each night), the veteran actor will have another go at manning the bar at 21 Greenpoint, a Brooklyn newcomer from owners Syd Silver and Homer Murray (Bill's son) that's replacing their restaurant River Styx. The cocktails on offer are the creations of beverage director Sean McClure, an alum of Le Bernardin and Dirty French, but we're going to assume ol' Bill will have full control of the tequila bottles. 

UPDATE: This weekend's event is a private affair and is guest list–only.

Two questions:  How do I get on the list and will there be enough Crystal head Vodka to go around?
