Free Eats Day 7: Pineapples, But No Penne

On Day 7 I hit Balducci's in the afternoon for some pineapple chunks and Rembrant cheese. Next I attempted to free eat my way through a business lunch at Via dei Mille in Soho, where I drank one glass of prosecco that bubbled straight to my unfed brain. Free crusty bread and olive oil took the buzz away but I still hoped for a repeat of last Sunday's free penne pasta.

When the pasta never arrived I asked VDM staff what happened and they admitted that feeding nearly 100 rowdy table-dancing brunchers each a personal plate of pasta was a logistical nightmare for the kitchen. Grrrr
