Chupa told me that he’d made reservations at a special place for my birthday, but I told him that I’d already picked out the venue. I wanted PASTA PASTA PASTA. Specifically, I wanted a $60 plate of Chitarra alla Norcina that turned out to cost $70 when we showed up at the restaurant.
In my defense, I’ve never demanded a pricey meal from anyone before, but I’ve been craving good pasta for twenty years.
Plus, TRUFFLES (a.k.a. 1/80th of a truffle)!
I wasn’t sure that I’d say this, but it was worth the $70 (granted, it wasn't my $70)(but I can speak for Chupa and say that it was worth HIS $70, plus tax & tip, so $92. Right? Even though he only got 2 noodles). Delicious!!!
Chupa and his friend Jonic spent the evening singing and jamming along to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You,” which requires a lot of falsetto and features the lyric, “everything I need's . . . between . . . those thighs.”
