Ryan Howard a welcome wedding crasher at Water Works

When Kimberly Hoffman made place cards of famous Philadelphians like Rocky Balboa, Donovan McNabb, and Ryan Howard, for her Friday night wedding to Micah Hauenstein at the Water Works restaurant she never expected the real Ryan Howard to show up. The Phillies first baseman and a female companion stopped by the Water Works unaware the restaurant was closed for a wedding. Restaurant staff invited the pair inside for a drink and when owner Michael Karloutsos and family told Howard about the place cards, he happily areed to surprise the bridal party, getting a hug from the bewildered bride. To thank Howard for being a good sport the kitchen sent him onion soup and tuna ceviche and lobster bisque for his date. Howard was later seen backstage along with teammate Jimmy Rollins at Power 99's Powerhouse concert at the Wachovia Center headlined by Jay-Z. The hip-hop superstar dedicated his hit "99 Problems" to Michael Vick, who was also backstage.
