We are privy to a quiet dinner with William Burroughs and Andy Warhol at The Chelsea Hotel in 1980.

A walking tour commences right outside their door, where the guide is bragging about Warhol and Burroughs creating there. Burroughs signs and draws in a copy of his new book, Cities Of The Red Night, for Andy. Warhol in constant fan boy excitement, accepts the gift and points out that Burroughs should be a painter. All the while, we are given an amusing play by play by an attractive British man who could be Johnny Thunders’ brother. As a bonus, Nico sings a great version of “Chelsea Girls,” accompanied by an electric guitar in another room.
