How Many Licks Does It Take?

tony.jpgNote to all visiting celebrities: What happens in Chicago does not stay in Chicago. This is not Vegas, and if you invade our town and make an ass of yourself, we aren’t going to keep quiet about it.

Earlier this month, members of "The Sopranos" cast stopped by Buddy Guy’s Legends. Steve Van Zandt, aka Little Steven, joined Guitar Shorty on stage for an impromptu jam session as James Gandolfini, Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa cheered him on.

But it seems the drama went down off stage when Mr. Tony Soprano himself, reportedly heavily sauced, approached a woman at the club and began licking her face and head “as if he was licking a lollipop,” according to a witness. "When someone told him not to do it, he called security over. He was drinking up a storm.”

As if he was licking a lollipop. We’re big fans of the "The Sopranos" and Mr. Gandolfini, but really, EWW. Gandolfini’s girlfriend, “The Sopranos” makeup artist Kathrina Miccio, was apparently not thrilled with the news either. In fact, she may never let him lick her face again.

In other celeb news, Vaughniffer is back in town for “The Break Up” re-shoots and, perhaps, house hunting? Jen and Vince also stopped in for some blues at Kingston Mines on Tuesday night. No word on whether or not face licking was involved.
