After settling in last week with a 4 Hands Resurrection IPA at Three Kings Public House (6307 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-3355), Gut Check got to chatting with the staff and they told us a juicy bit of gossip: Apparently, Entourage star Adrian Grenier had been in on Wednesday, October 23.
Grenier apparently had a speaking gig at Washington University -- the student paper reports that attendees started walking out twenty minutes into his talk about sustainability and not using plastic bags. Maybe that's why he felt the need to trudge over to Three Kings and drown his sorrows. If that happened to us, we'd probably order something strong and heavy to wash the pain away, right? Not Vincent Chase.

Grenier was sipping on Patron, soda and orange juice with a splash of lime. According to the bartenders, he repeatedly asked them to give him free shots (they refused) and then tried to get women in the bar to buy him shots. One fan allegedly asked the bartender what Grenier was drinking and after hearing his froufrou cocktail order, she bought him a shot of bourbon.
The Three Kings staff agreed that Grenier was "a real douche." We only wish we'd been there to channel our inner Ari:
