Bill Murray has “No Reservations” about Yonkers or Pebble Beach, one reservation about Ghostbusters 3

In case you missed it, this was the week we got a couple of insightful peeks into the mind and world of comedian Bill Murray.

First came this interview with The Daily Mail on Sunday, in which Murray talked about how great he believes Groundhog Day was and is as a movie and screenplay, as well as the "big" news that he would be part of Ghostbusters 3 on one very "big" condition.

Then came this surprising appearance by Bill Murray on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. It's a deliciously fun show on the Travel Channel (which really is loading up on the food-based shows, isn't it? I'm not complaining, but watch your back, Food Network!). What made his appearance surprising, perhaps, was where we saw Murray, eating at his buddy's restaurant on the Hudson River. In Yonkers. Yonkers! Tony also delighted in recounting their drive back into Manhattan that night, in which Murray grabbed the wheel and proved himself to be a funny driver, too. Here's a clip from Tony's meal with Bill:

And of course, you'll get to see a bit of Bill Murray doing what he loves almost as much as comedy, as this weekend he's playing once again in the PGA's Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on CBS. Check your local listings!
