I know this isn't the place for it, but I wanted everyone to see it. Rocky Tommaseo, the owner of Rocky & Carlo's died early this morning. Just wanted to say that we should all keep him and his family in our prayers. He was an Iconic figure. Here is the article on NOLA.com. He was a true American success story. He was 94.

That place has been a fixture in my whole life from going there after my dad's basketball and baseball games in the parish, to going there after every major church event in my family...heck my Aunt used to get a whole tray of Mac and Cheese from Rocky's for Christmas dinner every year.

This is so sad. I will never forget the image of Rocky sitting at the register. I am just in shock.

Rest in peace Rocky.

Now I have to get me some veal Parmesan next time I go home.
