Rider Strong drops by Max's

rider strongOr maybe I should have titled this blog "Boy Meets Max's." Hee hee.

Actor Rider Strong (of Boy Meets World fame) visited Max's Taphouse (737 S. Broadway) for three hours last Friday during the bar's first German Beer Fest.

Strong (pictured, as a child, to right) started with German beer and switched to Belgians, according to general manager Gail Furman.

"I was adamant about [people] leaving him alone," she said. "No one bothered him."

The festival was a hit, and will be back for a second round next year, Furman said.

Oh God i MUST go talk to the great teevee star.... outta my way Mrs. Furman....why does she think we care about Rider Strong?

am i the only one who hasn't got a clue who that is??

'cause he's DREAMY. clearly. or at least he was when that show was on...

Another child actor driven to the bottle...

I'd be much more excited if Topanga had shown up. Or even Mr. Feeny (aka KITT from Knight Rider).

No Ellen, I've never seen him before either.

I'm surprised no one has commented on his name.

Or dropped the question, "Who is Rider Strong?"

I would like to take this opportunity to salute my friend and McDonogh '96 alumn Ben Stanley, who was an extra on Boy Meets World for several years. His butt also made a cameo appearance in the locker room finale of Never Been Kissed.

Rider Strong is a wild name. Sam, how about a thread on wild names like this one? Of course they should be real, like former Montgomery County Schools Superintendent Harry Pitts

Sam and Trouble,
you're right..what's up with that name??? It sounds like a porn star name....a total porn star name..

On a sidenote, his middle name is King (according to Teen Beat or some other tabloid that I used to read when I was a tweeny and Boy Meets World was popular). Rider King Strong. Pretty sure his parents wanted him to grow up in showbiz.

"Another child actor driven to the bottle..."

He's 28, and if I'm correct, you're old enough to drink. If that means 'driven to the bottle' than okay than, lol.
