Bill Murray Toasts 70th Birthday at Rockefeller Center With Tacos, Lorne Michaels
Bill Murray. Rockefeller Center. Tacos.
That's how the veteran star celebrated his 70th birthday Monday night, by traveling to the site of his old Saturday Night Live stomping grounds in Manhattan to toast the milestone outside his son Homer Murray's new taco shop, Hombre Taco. The restaurant, located on the concourse level, officially opened Tuesday and serves a range of typical tacos (pork, beef, chicken, vegetarian) and bowls ranging in price from $5-$12.
Hombre Taco catered the event, which took place in the Rockefeller Center Rink and featured the elder Murray partying with close to 30 pals (while wearing a colorful hat) including SNL boss Lorne Michaels. He arrived to his birthday bash after celebrating the premiere of his latest collaboration with Sofia Coppola, the film On the Rocks in which he stars opposite Rashida Jones.
Per Page Six, a crew from SNL filmed the party. On the Rocks hits theaters in limited release on Oct. 2.
