    Wow, fat dumb people getting drunk eating spaghetti and sauce.

    How glorious!

    That was a beautiful podcast. I love ya Greg you glorious piece of humankind. What a portrait of your father, Gene, and how you finally may have come to grips with the loss. Real stuff. Don’t hate yourself for not talking to him. I once didn’t talk to my dad for more than a year. Remember the other 23 years you did talk to him. They count.

    Great podcast! Great storytelling, you’re pretty good at it, I can only imagine how good they are, since they’re that much better at it than you (according to you). Also, FYI, there is a Rao’s in Caeser’s Palace in Las Vegas.

      But the Vegas Rao’s is probably less authentic, certainly doesn’t have the storied history, like most places in Vegas now, except the Flamingo Hilton and the old places on Fremont Street.

    Greg –
    Great show— interesting break-away from the norm ( I dig the “norm” very much).

    Sounds like a fantastic night! Heavy, and amazing. I’m not gonna get corny, but it would be easy.

    There’s a place here in Phoenix, call
    Durant’s —-stuck in time (at least the last time I was there–couple years). You enter through the back, through the kitchen — vintage bitchin’!
    Get some one to take you there when you play the city.
    Thanks for the great entertainment!

    The podcast about Rao’s reminds me why I left NY.

    Fitzdog – this might have been the best of all of your terrific podcasts. So real – don’t even know how you kept it together during some of it. Thank you for sharing!
