Pats & ex-Pats Consume Mass Quantities
It was just like old homey week when a pack of New England Patriots, led by
heartthrob Tom Brady, hooked up with their erstwhile QB, Drew Bledsoe, for a
little red-meat chowdown at Bonfire, followed by more revelry with more
jocks at Whiskey Park.
Drew and Tom and teammates Larry Izzo, Lawyer Milloy, Willie McGinest, Otis
Smith and Ted Johnson consumed vast quantities of chef Todd English's grub
until about midnight the other night.
At one point, the table was joined by Mass. Film Office cheese Robin Dawson,
who, our spies swear, was discussing Clint Eastwood's new flick, ``Mystic
River,'' with Brady.
Dawson is trying to get Clint to film the set-in-Boston saga in Boston.
Perhaps some Super Bowl MVP lobbying is in the works. Or maybe Tom will
star; with him, you never know.
Anyway, after many, many platters of tacos, empanadas, sirloins (Drew, Otis
and Larry) and Porterhouses (Tom and Lawyer) and a $58 bottle of Larrikin
Syrah that the new Buffalo Bill picked out, the team was fueled up and ready
to party on.
So the boys repaired to Whiskey Park next door where they hoisted a few with
Celtics Antoine Walker and Tony Battie, former New Kid On The Block Jordan
Knight and various and sundry Seattle Mariners.
``Tom was talking to a cute brunette for a while, but mainly speaking only
to his boys while ignoring all the women trying to catch his eye,'' said
Someone Who Was There.
Such a tease. . . .
