David Letterman Filming His New Show at Buddy Guy's Legends

Sounds like good old gray beard was in the Sloop (via Chicago Tribune):
Veteran talk show host David Letterman visited Buddy Guy’s Legends in the South Loop and the Athenian Room in Lincoln Park while filming his new Netflix show Tuesday in Chicago.

Despite the rain, Letterman stopped to take selfies with a crowd that had gathered outside the Greek restaurant.

It appears Letterman spent the morning at Guy’s blues club. Parking notices posted outside the club warned of filming of an “Untitled Letterman Project” on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Signs posted on the club’s front door said the club would be closed until 5 p.m. Tuesday for a private event.

Guy’s assistant, Annie Lawlor, said Tuesday the club was being used as a film set but would not give additional details. Music coming from the club could be heard from the street. Guy was a musical guest on Letterman’s “The Late Show,” and both men were among those who received Kennedy Center Honors in 2012.

Pretty cool stuff and looking forward to seeing if Buddy Guy was his guest.  The Tribune article also questioned if they could have been interviewing Tina Fey.  If I had to guess, it wasn't her.
