He keeps a catamount as his house cat. He knows how to get there from here. Tractors get stuck in traffic behind him.
He is... the Most Interesting Man in the World. And he doesn't always host Obama fundraisers, but when he does, they're in Vermont.
Actor Jonathan Goldsmith, who plays the cosmopolitan, impossibly accomplished character in a series of TV ads for Dos Equis beer, is hosting the fundraiser to support Barack Obama's reelection campaign at Nectar's next Tuesday, September 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. Proceeds go to Gen44, the Obama campaign program dedicated to fundraising from the under-40 crowd. Humble little Burlington might seem an odd spot for a pop culture hero like Goldsmith to make an appearance, but the Most Interesting Man in the World is, appropriately, a Vermonter — he lives down in Manchester and was spotted in Burlington when Obama spoke at the University of Vermont earlier this year.
Also appearing at the event will be the most interesting House speaker in Vermont, Shap Smith, along with local singer-songwriter Justin Levinson. Tickets range from $20 to $1000, the latter of which gets you invited to a pre-event reception with Mr. Dos Equis. The soiree is hosted by state senator representative Kesha Ram, who introduced then-Senator Obama when he spoke at the University of Vermont in 2006. Click here to RSVP.
