In honor of Lou's passing, I am reposting this from 2 years ago.
Recently Yun took me to the Metropolitan Opera House in New york to see The Barber of Seville. The only reason I am familiar with this opera is because it was used on episodes of Bugs Bunny and the Little Rascals. For once it wasn't me who fell asleep. Yun conked out for a good chunk of it. We had amazing seats in a private box on the 50 yard line. After a few Jim Beam's I was feeling good about the performance. At a certain point, I looked next to me and I noticed that Boris Karloff was sitting there. At closer inspection I realized it was actually Lou Reed. I don't bug famous people, so I left him alone. It seemed like he had a few Jim Beam's too. Both of us enjoyed the show. Two thumbs up from Lou and yours truly.
