Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett Snapped Chilling Together in Omaha
An Omaha teen posted a picture on Sunday night, July 13, showing him "chilling" with Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett. In the picture, the teen, Tom White, was seen grinning widely and giving the thumbs up while the musician and the businessman were sitting together on a bench in the background.
Tom's friend, Luke Koester, was the one who took the snap and later posted it on Twitter. He captioned the picture with, "Best picture of the night with @WarrenBuffett and @PaulMcCartney goes to Tom White!" The tweetpic went viral. White also posted the picture on his Instagram account, writing in the caption, "Chillin with my homies."
Tom and Luke knew that the former The Beatles member was in town after they saw an Instagram picture of them eating ice cream at eCreamery. Quickly, the boys leapt into a car and drove to the ice cream store, along with two other friends.
"Drew grabbed his guitar and Luke a vinyl album and we went as fast as we could to the bench where they were sitting," Tom told the Telegraph. He added, "Paul couldn't sign the guitar or the vinyl, but he was very nice." According to Luke, the two men were very friendly. He said, "Paul asked if Drew played guitar, which he said was pretty cool. They were very nice."
Paul and Warren had just eaten at a local restaurant and even enjoyed an ice cream date together in Dundee, according to Omaha World Herald. The two had dinner at Avoli, an Italian restaurant on Underwood Avenue.
After dinner, they went up the street to eCreamery. "I couldn't breathe," store clerk Josh Ryan said. "It was awesome." According to him and some customers, Paul was "very polite and super nice." He said, "He deserves to be called 'Sir' because he's nothing but polite."
Plenty of awe-struck citizens took photos of the unexpected duo. One fan, who was having a birthday, managed to pose right between them on the bench. "Great end to a great birthday! thanks @WarrenBuffett & @PaulMcCartney!! #omaha #Dundee @OWHnews," Kaity Clarke wrote on Twitter.
The pop star, who has been recovering after being admitted into a hospital because of a virus infection, was in town for a music tour and was scheduled for a performance at Lincoln's Pinnacle Bank Arena. Warren is a resident of Omaha.
