Did you see these photos going around social media? Justin Bieber and Dave Chappelle had lunch together in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday at a restaurant called Lotus Restaurant. What a surprise that must have been for the employees, seeing these two huge celebrities walk through their door. That would be the day you'd want to be at work at Lotus! But why were they in town?

Justin and Dave were in Minneapolis together on Sunday because Dave's documentary 'Untitled' was screening at Target Center on Saturday and Sunday. At the Sunday screening, which is the day Justin and Dave were out for lunch together, Justin performed on stage, according to Bring Me the News. So that's why they were hanging out in Minneapolis.

If you aren't familiar with the restaurant they went to, Lotus is a Vietnamese restaurant that opened in 1983, so they've been around for almost 40 years. In the 'About Us' section on their website, they say that there used to be many Lotus restaurants but by 2007 all but the current one had closed. Sadly, the original owners also had passed away and their children had no desire to work in the restaurant business. But thankfully, a family who had immigrated to Minneapolis from Vietnam in 1981 loved the restaurant so much that they purchased it. With the help of their sons, it's the successful restaurant that even Justin Bieber and Dave Chappelle want to visit for a meal!
