RUSH: You know, I meant to mention this earlier today, and I just got caught up. My all-time favorite Italian restaurant in New York City, Patsy’s, celebrated their 75th anniversary yesterday. They had this gigantic gala from 5:30 to 9:30 last night. I was gonna go and surprise ’em and something came up late yesterday and I couldn’t go.
And I feel bad about it, but I needed to give them a shout-out. They were among the closest friends that I made shortly after I moved to New York in 1988.
They’re on 56th, west of Broadway. It’s just the greatest people. Sal Scognamillo is the great chef, the whole Scognamillo family there. And I’m gonna give a better shout-out tomorrow because they’ve really been an institution in Manhattan for the longest time, and they deserve all the things that have happened to them.
