When River Styx relaunches this weekend as 21 Greenpoint in Brooklyn, there will be a special guest behind the bar: Bill Murray. The restaurant is co-owned by his son, Homer, and Syd Silver. This won’t be Murray’s first time behind the bar. In 2010, he started pouring tequila shots at Austin’s Shangri-La during SXSW while hanging out with the Wu-Tang Clan. The drinks on the menu at this revamped space, put together by bartender Sean McClure of Dirty French, Daniel and Le Bernardin, are likely to be a bit more complicated than your average overflowing shots of tequila, so here’s hoping Bill has taken a few bartending classes since then.

To pair with your cocktail, there’s a new menu from Sean Telo, who used to work at Extra Fancy, Eater NY reports. He’s serving a white clam pie with guanciale, pecorino and oregano; a steak tartare; and an “ugly vegetable salad,” made with produce farmers might have trouble selling otherwise.

Looking to catch Bill for a chat about Suntory time? Unfortunately, a rep for the restaurant revealed to Gothamist that this weekend's service is by invite only. Here's hoping Bill feels like visiting his son another time soon.
