Ruth and John brought over copies of his latest book today. It has my cover design and I was eager to see the real thing. Delight! He dedicated this one to Danica and me.
We celebrated with lunch at Pizzeria Via Mercanti. Loved it, once John asked for the music to be turned down so we could talk. Conversations with the Colombos are never dull.
We tried several things from the menu and shared tastes. All delicious and well-presented … salads, pannini, calamari, rice ball appetizers, tiramisu dessert … and friendly, helpful service, too. If you just stick to pizza, good as it is, you’ll be missing some fine opportunities.
