Do you have any favorite sports teams?
I will always love my Buffalo Bills! On football Sundays, you will find me sporting my Bills jersey and Billieving this is finally the year for our long-awaited Super Bowl win!
What is your most memorable restaurant experience?
My daughter and I went to Tao Downtown in New York City to celebrate her 21st birthday. Tao is a massive multi-level restaurant that spans 22,000 square feet - underground! Besides the fantastic food, the ambiance was like no other restaurant I've experienced. I highly recommend it, especially if you like Asian bistros.
What was your first car?
I drove an old blue Chevette in high school. The floor was rusted out, the front passenger door was duck-taped to keep it shut, and the horn sounded like a duck. It was a "classic" and one of my favorite cars of all time.
