Actor Bill Murray sat with Warren Buffett on Thursday at a table in Ted and Wally’s, an Old Market ice cream shop.
A few customers sat and glanced at the pair, but no crowd gathered as the actor and billionaire were engrossed in conversation.
Amber Keller said she headed from her downtown apartment to Ted and Wally’s as soon as a friend told her Murray was in the shop.
“I’m a big fan,” Keller said. “I’ve been following how he shows up in random places.”
Keller, an artist who also goes by Amber Bambler, asked Murray how he felt about hugs. Murray obliged, then told Buffett he had to get one, too.

“So I hugged both of them,” Keller laughed.
What brought Murray to Omaha?
“Alaska Airlines,” he said, prompting a chuckle from Buffett.
Murray pulled two small cups from his pocket.
The airline served smoothies in the cups, and throwing them away seemed like a waste, Murray said.
He turned to Buffett. “They could almost be portable shot glasses.”
