So, sitting at home and the phone rings. Its Robert LaBarbera in town form up North. Has two pies for me and is in Brentwood. We have talked many times but never met. Asks if I want to meet to pick up two sausage pies? I say give me 20 minutes. We meet and do a reverse of the hand off Weinermobile and I did several months ago. He has been following us here and still wants to do something. I told him at this point its a bucket list thing for a bunch of people and that is my only interest. Bottom line is he says he wants to make it happen and it appears that we may have a licensed kitchen to do it from. We are back to 50/50. He follows FTC so send the love.
A bit of an unfortunate follow up. LaBarbara had a very serious motorcycle accident and was almost killed. He spent two days on life support but pulled through and is on the mend. This happened a few months back but he is still recovering and hopefully will make a full one. In any event, any hope of a pizza fest any time soon is very unlikely although he would very much appreciate our good thoughts and well wishes.
