Thanks for the recipe. I've always wanted to experience/make a sausage and peppers sandwich. They seem to be always ordering that on _The Sopranos_. ;)

well there is a restaurant in little italy called la meila, they actually serves my mother's cheesecake recipe as their dessert. it has become kind of touristy though. i am pretty sure vito - friend of the family still owns it and if you say you know the rosenbergs and want to order off the regular menu you will probably get a great meal. pellegrino's was a rosenberg staple restaurant for years!! oh and vito is a sibling a marie carnival whose house was used in the filming of goodfellas, it is the first house that karen got to decorate hidiously. if you miss the soprano's give me a call spark up the speaker phone and i can tell you a few stories, i just found out this kid i used to hang out with in the 4th grade is a made man and facing the feds for a wall street scam that he started because christopher was doing it. yeah, they are that smart in real life....8-) it is a funny fucking story!

Oh, Kate (cooknkate), don't get me started about my love of the soprano's and the sadness of the fact that is really is over (fuggedaboudit!). I still get the chills when I hear Journey, although I did before they used "Don't Stop Believing" on the final show (did I just admit that!?). HOLD ON TO THAT FEE-LAH-EEE-ANG! STREET LIGHTS, PEEEEOPLE! OOH-OOH-OOOOOH! I've gotta take a moment right now. I'm back. You are correct. After a bit of research, in Season 6, Ep. 74, Paulie was in charge of running the Feast of St. Elzear annual festival. He wanted the statue used in the parade to wear some gold hat and all this mafia cr@p ensues (Paulie Walnute cr@p, that is... gawd bless 'em). The St. Elzear feast was a name they made up, but they were really talking about San Gennaro. Nice eye, Kate! Truf is, y'all nevah 'faggedaboud' da Sopranos. Long live 'em.

Thanks so much for the comment, Melissa. I think the Howard Beach fest will definitely be on my radar for next year... now that will really make for some good pics. But,seriously, I think you'll need to come home to escort us around - kind of like to make us legit in the community. If not, I'll just throw your name around. I'm sure you're still somewhat of a legend on the streets around there. Not to mention that there are probably a few loser guidos from your high school that I could scare off by telling them I"m friends with you! That story about the "state fair" is HILARIOUS. The only state fair I've ever been to is one in the hick parts of PA and we counted the mullets and the genesse beers that were being drunk. No pigs though... S&P is TOTALLY about the bread. In fact, isn't ever good hoagie/sub/hero about the bread?

ok, well san gennaro used to be a great fest, but lost it about 10 years ago if not more and is way to ocercrowded. little italy used to be one of my favorite places on earth - try pellegrino's, the stuffed artichokes alone are worth the trip to that restaurant. the feast in howard beach is probably a better choice these days and YES that one is run by mafia....8-) but you have no right to complain, i went to the NC state fair to get my sausage and peppers and while i was served them by italians, and it was good, it was also a bit chintzy on the sausage and peppers and quite the onion fest with the worst bread, oye i miss good bread. oh and the stand was right next to the pig races, yes pig races!!! at least my sitting on a bench people watching for an hour provided some of the biggest belly laughs i have had in a while. i think i spit some lemonade out a few times from some of the characters that walked past me
