#367. Pleasance Courtyard, 60 Pleasance, Edinburgh

Meghan and Julie waiting for his arrival.
I was once a fan of Knight Rider. I seem to recall watching it with my mom quite often. When we found out that David Hasselhoff was performing at the Fringe, we couldn't resist the post-modern irony of seeing an iconic, aging sex-symbol do shmaltzy versions of Broadway show tunes. Closing out the show with a stirring rendition of 500 Miles while wearing a kilt was a nice touch. We were won over and braved the queue to meet him and get his autograph.

We missed out the first time (he only signs for 20 minutes and the queue was too long), so we came back the next night, skipped the show, and went straight to the front of the lineup. We enjoyed a Magners Irish Cider in this outdoor patio.
