As promised, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson treated 200 people to dinner at Sylvia's last night, all of them invited by way of a Tweet. During the meal, he Tweeted, "Met 200 hundred people 2night. Now I've 200 new friends, even better 200 new friends have my phone number. Now that shit is #Epic or #Crazy"—is it epic or crazy that everyone loves a New England Patriots player?!
Within minutes of Ocho's Tweet announcing his plans to buy dinner to the first 200 people who showed up at the famed Harlem restaurant, DNAinfo reports that diners began to appear at Sylvia's, which is located at Lenox Avenue between 126th and 127th streets. Tren'ness Woods-Black, granddaughter of founder Sylvia Woods and the restaurant's head of public relations declared, "This was totally unplanned. That's the cool thing about Chad."
Besides ribs, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken and collard greens, there were also cupcakes from Cakeman Raven! It looks like it was a fun night—check out some photos, plus see this video of Ocho leading a prayer before the meal:
Later, Ocho Tweeted that Motorola "just gave 200 new friends my Droid Razr number. Please excuse the increase in traffic to my device. Sincerely: "The Black Guy""
