Okay, so maybe “hanging out” might be a bit of an exaggeration. Maybe it was more like chasing him around as we attempted to photograph two different “meet & greet” events of about 100 people. Still, Pacino was an extremely friendly and easy-going guy, who didn’t seem to mind being pulled in various directions and having strangers scramble for pictures. I’ll admit to being one of the eager masses that couldn’t resist the urge to get a picture with him.

On Friday night, former Hootie & the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker was treated to a special surprise during a private concert at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach. After learning that it was Darius’ 45th birthday, event organizers brought in a huge cake and had the audience sing “Happy Birthday” while Rucker blew out the candles. Not an ordinary ending to a typical rock concert.
