Guess Who Came To Dinner?
at my wife's little Italian restaurant

 12:54 pm on Aug 5, 2003 (gmt 0)

My wife is co-owner of a little Italian restaurant in our small (very small) city. They have a great reputation for really yummy american Italian dishes. Occassionally, once every other year or so, we get visited by a celebrity.

Several have come but I've long since forgotten who they were though I think one was Alan Alda. Two years ago it was Emerald Lagasse (famous chef) and this past Sunday it was Whoopi Goldberg. Imagine the surprize the staff and patrons felt when she walked in with her agent and body guard. :)

Congrats to your wife and her team, Lorax! Maybe Whoopi will put in a word with her friend Oprah... ;-) Was she (and the other celebs) polite/kind to the staff?

Did she leave a tip?

Re: tip and kind. I would think she would given what little I know of here but I'll have to get the details.

Got the scoop.

Nice? - Very pleasant and courteous.

Tip? - She wouldn't say but she had a big smile.

That's sweet. Kudos to your wife's discretion!

It was actually the waitress' discretion. She's been there a long time and knows how to work the floor so I imagine it was a pretty nice tip. ;)
