Shape of Water won Best Picture this year at the Oscars. It stars Michael Shannon, but when the movie took home the title, Shannon was not on stage. In fact, he wasn’t even in the building. Shannon was in Chicago. At a bar. The Old Ale House. Drinking beer. Watching the Oscars. On Mute.
Could this guy be any cooler?
Michael Shannon watching the film he starred in, "Shape of Water", win best picture while sitting in the Old Town Ale House. No sound on the TV, just sub-titles. Of course the juke box was rocking, and the beer flowing. Where else would you want to spend Oscar night? pic.twitter.com/WAC6uc6guZ— Bruce Elliott (@GeriatricGenius) March 6, 2018
The Old Ale House, of course, is an institution in Chicago. To wit:
It’s also a frequent Anthony Bourdain hangout.
There’s some nice art here, too.
Wait, is that Trump? Without pants?
I just remembered that there's a painting of Donald trump without pants at Old Town Ale House. Sorry. pic.twitter.com/otoKriDaja— An Actual Bee (@GirlfriendBecky) November 27, 2016
So there you, folks: Michael Shannon, drinking beer, sitting by himself in a bar where Trump isn’t wearing pants. Could there be a better place?
