2004_08_food_inoteca.JPGBeer, wine or cocktails?
I would rather serve beer and wine, because it's harder to get uncontrollably wasted -- it just takes more effort.

What could I order that will get me laughed right out of the bar?
White zinfandel or a white wine spritzer.

Who has been your favorite celebrity patron?
Patton Oswalt.

Who's that?
He's a comedian -- he has a supporting role on the King of Queens. He's really nice. I'm a comedian, too, and he gave me career advice.
