It's not all business when Bill Gates comes to town to see Warren Buffett.

The two friends toured the Fairmont Antiques & Mercantile store/Hollywood Candy in Omaha's Old Market while on a break from the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting in May.

Buffett, Berkshire chairman and CEO, and Gates, a Berkshire director and co-founder of Microsoft, browsed through the place, checking out magazines, records, candy and other goodies.

"We had a blast reminiscing about our favorite treats, Melinda's and my special history with Willie Nelson, why pinball machines were the best business Warren ever had, and a lot more," Gates wrote on his blog.
