This past Saturday we decided to try out a little Italian restaurant that we had walked by many times and always thought "that place looks so cute."
It was a nice dinner; definitely good food, and about half full on a Saturday night, which made for a pretty quiet dinner. Yesterday morning, I read online that our new restaurant, Lucca's, about 4 blocks from our house, was the site of a murder late Tuesday night (3 days after we had eaten dinner there!) A body had been discovered in the basement, seemingly beaten and shot, though details have of course been withheld. The victim is assumed to be the 47 year old restaurant manager, who I believe may be the man who was behind the bar all night. Like 10 feet away from us. In all the Italian restaurants in the city, who'd have thought something this juicy would happen at one we had been to, and in such a quiet neighborhood. Small world, big city.
