Hey, Hey, You, You Come Eat At My Restaurant

2007 September 11

I have been working so much lately between my two jobs that I haven’t had much time to post on this blog.  If anyone actually reads it, I’m sorry to you.

Anyway, last night was one of the most exciting nights at the restaurant since I began working there.  We had not one, not two, but THREE celebrities eating there, and two of them were actually seriously A-Listers!

First we had Jonathan Demme, the Academy Award winning director of The Silence of the Lambs, and this year’s Jimmy Carter documentary, Man From Plains.  He’s in TO presenting his film at the TIFF.  Then we had 90’s star Frank Whaley, who at one time was a legitimate actor – you may remember him as the loser store worker who hangs with Jennifer Connelly in Career Oportunities.  He also had a part in Pulp Fiction.  Then . . . then, we had one of the biggest stars in music right now eating in one of our private rooms: Avril Lavigne!  She looked like just a regular, normal person and was apparently extremely nice and gracious to her server.  Interesting as the media often paints a picture of her as being a self-absorbed and rude brat.  She also brought along her bodyguard who hung out at the sushi bar all night drinking Evian.  I wonder why Avril wasn’t in Vegas for the MTV VMAs.  She was nominated for Monster Single of the Year.  She probably knew she was going to lose to Rihanna and decided not to even bother.
