Tuesday night from her massive stage in the middle of Michigan Avenue, Oprah Winfrey joked to the thousands in the throng that she'd like to pour everyone a tequila shot. The legalities of drinking in public, however, prevented her from playing barkeep.
"Nice party," Winfrey said. "We just need a few tequila shots. Believe me, I wanted you to have 'em but I'd end up being sued a time or two."
Earlier that afternoon, however, Oprah previewed the evening taping of her show -- a stunt to kick off the 24th season of her Chicago-based daytime talk show -- in an interview with Eric & Kathy on WTMX (101.9 FM). Even then she said she was hankerin' for a shot -- lime, no salt -- because, she said, that's how you know it's a party.
She promised to do tequila shots with Eric & Kathy after the big Mag Mile event, and apparently it was indeed a party. Kathy Hart took the photo above of Miss O and Eric Ferguson following through at one of the clubs in the new Trump International Hotel & Tower hours after the big show.
Allegedly, this is the tequila Oprah enjoys. And here's hoping they later feasted on the Tequila-Lime Chicken Brochettes from Oprah.com.
