Bon Jovi Disses The Jersey Shore on Independence Day for The Hamptons
While most celebs were either prancing around on the beaches of Malibu this Fourth of July weekend or hitting the nightclubs in the Hamptons, Jon Bon Jovi was doing something a little more low-key, eating Mexican Food in East Hampton at The Blue Parrot. We're shocked that this "hometown boy" from New Jersey wasn't spending time down at "the shore" but we'll forgive him that because apparently, he decided to give the place a little show.
"He just took a guitar off the wall and started playing," said one lucky eater. The New Jersey rock legend opened with "Who Says You Can't Go Home" before playing "Free Bird." Then, "He tried to get back to his table, but everyone was screaming for him to play one more song," laughs our source. He obliged them with "Dead or Alive."
Man, we wish all celebrities would do this when they dine at restaurants. Except you know, Paris Hilton.
The Blue Parrot is actually in its second incarnation right now, having closed down back in 2006 before billionaire Ron Perelman decided to reopen it last month. Jon Bon Jovi is also rumored to be a "secret investor." Nevertheless, the place is not all about celebs and rich men. The Blue Parrot does serve food and New York mag recommends the (expensive) $12 chitpotle guacamole and the Dirty Bird Margaritas ($9 .)
And perhaps this is why Jon Bon Jovi felt comfortable enough to give an impromptu performance: The menu says "No texting por favor." Still, that didn't stop one Huffington Post editor from recording it all and snapping a blurry picture.
