Dave Chappelle just can't stay away from San Antonio.

After being spotted at the Pearl in early October, the comedian came back to the near-downtown brewery complex over the weekend, this time with a posse.

He was joined by fellow comedians Ardie Fuqua and Mo Amer to visit local stand-up Ashley Barnhill. The Pearl wasn't the only spot Chappelle visited — he posed with the group for a photo outside of Hotel Havana.

What's more, apparently SNL and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan joined the group by phone.

"We got your back @ashley_barnhill!!!" Fuqua said in a post on Instagram. "I joined @realmoamer and @davechappelle to visit our sister. Big Bruh @tracymorgan called and gave some love and support as well. LEGENDS!!!"

According to MySA, Chappelle was seen in the Pearl complex near Brasserie Mon Chou Chou on Saturday. San Antonians at the complex over the weekend also reported sightings:

Chappelle was likely in town for some R&R prior to a sold out two-night stint at Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin on Tuesday and Wednesday.
