The peace process has its benefits.
A spy tells me that Gerry Adams was spotted last night dining – with ‘three Irish looking blokes’ – at the exclusive Bobby Van’s Steakhouse on Park Avenue and 46th Street.
Adams is in town to attend the annual Clinton Foundation fest, at which the champion of Wall Street, deregulation and the overwhelmingly successful effort to mass incarcerate America’s African-American population, entertains his enormously wealthy and influential buddies to a weekend of revelry, over-consumption and lobbying for spouse Hillary, who is bidding for the White House herself.
It is a measure of how far the boul’ Gerry has come from the backstreets of Ballymuck, that starters at Bobby Van’s begin at $14.95 and rise to $21.95; a salad can set you back $18.95; entrees start at $39.95 and rise to $53.95; side dishes, spuds to you and me, are $7.95. And that’s before you figure in a dessert and drinks.
God, ain’t this peace process just wunnerful!
