HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Robert De Niro will be appearing as himself at a Pennsylvania state liquor store.

The state liquor control board says De Niro will take part in grand opening festivities Friday for a Fine Wine and Good Spirits store in Glen Mills, about 30 miles west of Philadelphia.

The board says the actor will participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony and then a private meet-and-greet for 15 randomly selected attendees.

He’s in the state promoting his vodka line, called VDKA 6100. Other lucky attendees will get a chance to buy a bottle signed by the two-time Academy Award winner.

He’s not the first star to promote his wares in state stores. Actor Dan Aykroyd and rapper 50 Cent have made appearances in recent years.
