George and Amal Clooney were in Kentucky on Labor Day. Here’s what they did.

What’s it like to host a dinner party for one of the world’s most famous celebrity couples?

“They were wonderful,” Lexington businessman Jerry Lundergan said Friday about a private family dinner for the family of movie star George Clooney and his wife, Amal, Monday night at Caproni’s on the River in Maysville.

About 75 people were present, including George’s parents, Nick and Nina Clooney, who live in nearby Augusta, said Lundergan, who owns Caproni’s.

Lundergan, a former state representative and chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party, said Nick and Nina Clooney are regular customers at the restaurant and “George has been eating there since he was a boy.”

“They were the nicest people and Amal really enjoyed it,” said Lundergan.

It seems George Clooney always finds it easy to enjoy himself. “He put on a Caproni’s apron and got into the act,” Lundergan said.
