To all you would-be robbers: Don't fuck with customers of Al Di La because the wait staff will kick your ass. Here we have the story of a fearless female bartender and waitress who wrestled a stolen purse from a would-be successful snatcher. We received an account of the incident from FiPS reader and Al Di La diner Ross, who saw the whole thing go down:
I'm a loyal reader and one of your DILFs, according Amy Sohn. But this aint about that. Last night, my wife Jordana and I had dinner at al di la and arrived just after some intense crime-fighting action!
A woman entered al di's wine bar and asked to use the bathroom while she waited for a table. On her way out, she snagged the pocketbook of a woman seated at one of the tables. The waitress and bartender sprinted after her and caught her. A crowd surrounded the woman until police arrived. Apparently this woman is suspected of many purse snatchings in our hood.
Don't fuck with the wine bar!
Another FiPS reader, who presumably works at Al Di La, also emailed to let me know that the bartender is named Stephanie. Does anyone know her? I feel like I'm one of the three people in all of Park Slope that has not yet sampled their fine cuisine (I stress YET). I've reached out to Stephanie for comment and to give her a huge high fucking five, and will gladly print her account of the story should she want to share it (same goes for the waitress, whose name I did not get).
LASTLY, Ross -- Please tell us which DILF you are in the comment section. Gracias.
