Rusty ended up taking Todd and I out for pizza at Carmine’s to celebrate life and be grateful for what we have. He treated us to the back room where there’s table service. We’ve never been back there. It was nice. Lots of baseball memorabilia.
They gave us complimentary bruschetta (toasted bread with tomato salsa) …delicious. Then we had a sampler platter of fried calamari, mozzarella sticks and chicken fingers. We were already full by then. But Todd and I had ordered these huge ass plates of Veal Parmigiana ($10.50). I could only eat half. My leftovers filled a whole takeout container. Rusty’s personal cheese pizza was awesome. Freshly made to order. Only $6. Good size.
So this is how the mob eats? Being in the back room, I really felt like I was part of the family.
