Earlier this week, some celebrities took over the Famiglia on Broadway and 8th Street for the day. Crowds swarmed the area and a line to get inside wrapped around the block.
Among the familiar faces behind the counter: Lil John, Gary Busey, David Cassidy, Jose Canseco, Mark McGrath, and Richard Hatch. It’s like the “Dancing With The Stars” outcasts. All proceeds went to charity and the spectacle was being taped for a future episode of The Apprentice. Slices were $5.00 and pies were $40.00. A celebrity delivery cost $500.
I took particular note of both Jose Canseco’s pie making techniques Mark McGrath’s work behind the counter.
You can check out these videos I filmed. In the first… an untalkative Canseco works on his pie throwing technique. And in the second, a charasmatic McGrath works the line. “Jose makes a damn good pizza,” he tells me.
So you’re probably wondering how the pizza tasted? Well… it was Famiglia. And thus… it tasted just like Famiglia Judge for yourselves!
