Celebrities Take Over Greenwich Village Famiglia Location!

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!

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
