Say what you will about this crooner, the man passed out bottles of bubbles during his performance to have the audience assist in creating an underwater atmosphere while he belted out the Sponge Bob Sqaure Pants theme tune. "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"
Liquid gold flowed by the hundreds of tiny tasting glasses at this swanky event that included readings from the novel Ulysses. Beer and literature: a refreshing combination.
