"Saturday Night Live" is welcoming back some of its favorites.

For the show's cold open this week, multiple-time host John Goodman reprised his role as Rex Tillerson, joined by Fred Armisen as Michael Wolff and Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci.

But Hader's return to the sketch show also brought us one of the best characters from his eight years on the program — the mysterious tour guide Stefon.

Stefon, known for his ability to deliver some of the weirdest tourism advice, returned to give a St. Patrick's Day teaser. Here are his choices for what to do:

- Ga-uush: "Inspired by true events, this former CVS, which became a Chase Bank and then a CVS again, has a familiar feel. Like when Larry King would play himself in a movie. This place has everything: Death sets, key fobs, kale chips, Roman J. Israel, Esq. Plus, you can play everyone's favorite party game, The Stranger," which actually involves Billy Joel

- Off to church, Mother!: "Located in the clogged heart of The Bronx, at the corner of 3000th street and Gary Marshall Memorial Drive, this gang-ridden skateboard park was the ceremony spot for Verne Troyer's 2004 wedding. This place has everything: Peeps, Ted Talks, Roman J. Israel, Esq." Plus, one of the oddest jig dancing crews known to mankind.

- Stand clear of the closing doors please: "Built in an upside-down world, this haunted hospice when inspectors found a sexy form asbestos that could cause disease . . . This place has everything: Young popes, old popes, Roman J. Israel, Esq. But avoid the dance floor on Wednesdays, when a dozen hot dachshunds and corgis get in free. They call it 'Long and low nights.' Plus you can party in the VIP room with a group of human squatty potties," but had to bring out a special guest, John Mulaney — the man behind the jokes that got Hader laughing in real life — for a very brief cameo.
