Picture it:  The first day of March, 2011.  I was on my way to have a delicious New York bagel with some friends when the person standing in line ahead of me was Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day!  I debated talking to him as he was with his family and then I remembered that on a previous encounter with the rock god, I took a picture with him and he was so mobbed, the picture came out pretty bad.  Billie Joe, once again, was extremely nice and he happily obliged to take a photo with me.  As he was with his family, I did not gush to him about how awesome I think Green Day are and how I think it’s really a great thing that someone who is as big of a star as he is is very cool to fans – so I am saying it now.  Thanks again Billie Joe!  (and for those wondering, the bagel was nowhere near as great as taking a photo with Billie Joe).

    Brooklyn Bagels in Chelsea. DELICIOUS bagels. I can’t promise that he’s a regular, so please don’t go camping out there! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! I figured he was having some downtime since he just finished his Bway thing and dropped off Twitter. Btw excellent show!
