The owner of CVT Soft Serve hosted an impromptu Bill Murray Ice Cream Social at his store to share his love of the "Ghostbusters" star, and he extended an invite to the cast and crew of Murray's new movie after rumors emerged suggesting they were shooting in the neighborhood.

The businessman tells Gawker.com, "Long story short, the guest of honor made it to the party and the rest is history. Like my dad always says, 'You'll never dance with the pretty girl unless you ask'."

He also shared a number of photos of himself posing with his hero as the veteran actor enjoyed one of his sweet treats on Instagram.com.

Murray, 63, has made it a habit to make unexpected appearances at special events - in May he crashed a bachelor party in South Carolina and shared his advice on marriage, and last month he surprised a couple in Charleston, South Carolina by joining the pair for its official engagement photos.
