Turns out, celebrities enjoy Stubb's BBQ just as much as the rest of Austin. Recent Texas transplants Joe Rogan and Elon Musk were spotted along with Dave Chappelle and other celebrities at the popular Texas venue for a night on the town.


To prove it, Rogan posted a photo of himself surrounded by a VIP entourage: comedians Michelle Wolf, Donnell Rawlings, Mohammed Amer and Ron White; musician and Musk's partner Grimes, Austin restaurateur CK Chin and photographer Mathieu Bitton.

It is unclear when the pictures were taken since most of the group posted the photo yesterday, though Rawlings made his post three days ago. However, Rogan and Chappelle's last show at the venue was on Friday. The photos were taken at Stubb's backstage, according to White's post.

This is not the first time Rogan, Chappelle and Musk have been seen together. Rogan and Chappelle have teamed up for several joint comedy shows, first at Big Laugh Comedy in November, then at a series of shows for Stubb's.

Musk has famously appeared on Rogan's podcast on more than one occasion. The Tesla CEO can be expected around Austin more as his newest Gigafactory in Southeast Travis County comes to life.

Safe to say, this probably won't be the last time we see the group together.

For Marco Silvestrini, gelato takes him back to his childhood when he and neighborhood kids in a small Italian town would end their day at the local gelato shop. It was part of what made some of the best memories for him.
