Former Vice President Joe Biden showed up unexpectedly Tuesday at the New York City landmark Stonewall Inn alongside his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.
Reporters and others at the bar wrote on social media that the pair made a short visit, during which they received T-shirts celebrating the bar’s history as the birthplace of the LGBTQ rights movement in America.
Biden also tweeted about the stop.
“Just handed two Stonewall tshirts to Joe Biden for him and his wife! 🙂 Just another day at the office…” tweeted Chauncey Dandridge, who got caught off guard by the visit to the bar.
On Facebook, one poster even claimed Biden bought the house a round.
Biden’s drop-in came amid Pride Month, which celebrates the LGBTQ civil rights movement and was created in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Inn riots, which began when a police raid meant to crack down on the LGBTQ clientele turned violent.
New York City’s Pride parade is scheduled for June 30.
