The Ryan Gosling reports came in fast and furious this weekend. Yes, the actor was in Detroit, and you could nearly track his movements as fans giddily posted about chance meetings on Twitter.

His visit to a Starbucks in Grosse Pointe doesn't impress us much. But we're much more excited about this seeming budding friendship with Larry Mongo, owner of one of our all-time favorite bars.

Reddit user cruztacean posted the photo early Monday morning.

Gosling hasn't just discovered the not-so-secret spot downtown. He's downed shots and mixed with Detroiters at Cafe d'Mongo's Speakeasy in the past.

The actor may have been in town to prepare for "How to Catch a Monster," a movie set to film in Detroit. Described as a mix of fantasy noir and horror, it stars Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men" as Billy, a single mother who works at a fetish club. Gosling is seeking tax credits from the State of Michigan's Film Office for the movie, his directorial debut.

Unfortunately for starry-eyed Detroiters, Gosling won't be wandering around the metro area looking for love: his girlfriend Eva Mendes is also set to appear in the film. At least we've got Hey Girl Detroit.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article misspelled the name of "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks.
