Wow. That's better than an Elvis sighting!... and I'm glad to hear he may be on one of the last strips of road that hasn't been completely homogenized. Somehow, McCartney at a Ruby Tuesdays just doesn't jive.

Literally, my favorite artist is at my favorite location... could this be a sign of the apocalypse or something?
