Some people in Myrtle Beach still were buzzing Monday after their brush with celebrity when actors from the movie “Magic Mike XXL” were in town last week to film a few scenes.
The movie’s stars – including Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello – were in town Nov. 4 to film the final scenes from “Magic Mike XXL,” which is about a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for a stripper convention.
About two weeks before the cast and crew were in town, a producer contacted the owners of 8th Ave Tiki Bar and Grill on Ocean Boulevard about the possibility of holding their wrap party there.
“They didn’t really tell us a lot,” general manager and owner Gil Reibenbach said. “They said they were looking for a venue to throw a wrap party and asked us what we could do. ... We sent them the menu and some pictures. Then they said that they were deciding between us and a couple other places.
