‘Breaking Bad’ actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul stopped by Bar Louie’s Gateway this week for a quick visit to showcase their Dos Hombres de Mezcal brand as part of several promotional appearances in Central Florida this week .
The duo spent just under an hour meeting fans, signing Dos Hombres bottles and serving up free samples of their Method to the Madness Mule cocktail, created by Paul and Cranston and featuring Sauza Hacienda Silver, Dos Hombres Mezcal, Guava, Lime and Fever-Tree Ginger Beer.
As you’d expect when a few celebrities come to a small local establishment, things got a little crazy inside the bar when Paul and Cranston entered the venue, with eager fans rushing into the bar and asking for selfies, autographs and more. The venue also quickly sold out the Dos Hombres bottles the duo was signing, leading to some disappointment, especially as many impatient fans had waited hours outside to enter the packed venue.
Cranston and Paul mostly stayed behind the bar, which helped keep the crowds and queues in check, though some fans were disappointed that they couldn’t get their “Breaking Bad” items signed.
“First and foremost, I love Breaking Bad,” said Omar Elkalyoubie, an event planner at Give Kids the World Village, explaining why he stopped by the event. “Meeting [Cranston] is a big, big thing.
Although Elkalyoubie was unable to get his hands on any of the Dos Hombres bottles before they sold out, he said he did manage to get Cranston to sign a copy of his autobiography, which Elkalyoubie brought to the event, despite the star’s decline. to sign other items that were not Dos Hombres bottles.
After about an hour, when all the bottles had been signed and the free drinks had been drained, Cranston and Paul made a quick exit from the still packed room. Although the visit was quite brief, as the couple left the back door, Paul shouted to the fans who had gathered around the car they were leaving in, “We love Orlando!”
