A calm and dark evening in Canada in the back of what would soon become my favorite restaurant in Peterborough, Jim’s Pizza and Pasta. It sounds like the average dining experience, but very far from it in fact. The Greek salad and garlic pizza were “top notch,” although I am finding it difficult to explain just what made this meal more memorable than any other pizza and salad…but Tone, Paulie, Prince Po and myself all agreed.
The best moment of the evening was when the waitress, who’s name I can’t remember, asked us what brought us to Peterborough. Paulie told her that we were hip hop artists, and her was response floored us.
Now this woman was about 50 years old or older, pretty attractive white woman, who seemed pretty cool actually, as she talked about her piece of S**t ex-husband as if we were friends for years. Either way, after Paulie said that we were hip hop artists, she responded “Well, I don’t care for RAP music, but I do like HIP HOP!”
We each left the restaurant feeling so empowered that although the current rap/hip hop fans don’t often make the distinction between rap and hip hop, this 50 year old white woman was able to discern the difference. Cheers to Jim’s Pizza and Pasta for the memories!!!
