Judge Karen Simmons gets hug, kiss from Snoop Dogg

Municipal Court Judge Karen Simmons got a hug and a kiss from Snoop Dogg last night at the Wine & Spirits store (1218 Chestnut) where the rapper signed bottles of Landy Cognac. Simmons didn't buy the bottle but still got to meet the man she calls "The greatest hip-hop artist of all time."

"I've been his fan since the beginning," Her Honor said. She was less talkative when asked her feelings on Snoop's love of weed and offered "No comment."

Snoop, who played later last night at the TLA (334 South) arrived about 6:10 for the liquor-signing, which was scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. Many fans had left but he was still welcomed by a good crowd.
