I've seen this man around for a couple of months but have not had the opportunity to get a picture. He walks around with a small dog on a leash, with a cat sitting on top of the dog, and a white rat sitting on top of the cat. It's awesome and always gets a smile out of me every time I see him walking around with his pets.

Some friends of mine have taken to calling him Captain Stackin'. rotflmao.gif

It's an outstanding act. And not loud like buskers. Can't find a way to post a pic of this from our flickr or facebook, but will keep trying.

I believe this is the guy you speak of Birdland. This was outside of Starbucks® on Houston Street downtown. This pic was provided by a Tower friend of mine.

I've worked in the City Center towers for 15 years and I've never seen this person. I keep hearing about him - crap. He must make some money, I also hear he takes a cab home - so....?

I've seen him in Dallas before. I think one of the news stations might have done a story about him.

Good thing you posted a photo or else I would have said all of you are spending too much time in those downtown bars. rolleyes.gif

Thanks, Brian, much better lighting than the pix we took on Thanksgiving, so we don't have to figure out to upload.

Singer/Songwriter Leo Blais from Boston, MA is playing at the Aardvark tonight at 9pm. I saw him play at SXSW and was very impressed so I been following his blog and am excited about his show tonight.

For anyone interested, he happened upon the gentleman dog/cat/rat listed in this posting. Maybe it is becoming a FTW icon? Full video can be found today on his blog at http://leoblais.posterous.com/. I didn't think I would see that on his site today! rotflmao.gif

Hope to see you out there tonight!!!

(btw, if you can't make out the audio on the video, Leo asks "how did you train them" to which he replys "with duct tape".)
