Oh, sure, everyone wants to know whether Tony lives or dies in the final episode of the Sopranos. But we here at Gut Check would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge one of the great food-related characters ever, Artie Bucco. True, he wasn't the easiest guy to like -- and you shouldn't trust his investment advice: armagnac is not the new vodka -- but my stomach rumbled whenever I saw the dishes he was serving at Nuovo Vesuvio.
You can guess where I'll be at 8 p.m. on Sunday. Whatever you do this weekend, eat something good!
