Tony or Carmela?
The Star reported on Jan. 29, 2003 that two brothers, ages 20 and 15, were inspired by the Mafia television show The Sopranos. “Inspired to do what?” you might ask. Well, upon killing their own mother, the boys chopped off her head and hands in order to cover their tracks, saying that this technique was used on the television show to make it more difficult for cops to identify the body. In the face of such an atrocious abuse of the gifts that television has to offer, it’s nice to see that something positive can also come from TV, namely, Soprano Night at Papa Joe’s Kitchen, a recently opened, authentic Italian restaurant. At 7 p.m. Feb. 10, Papa Joe’s invites the public to dress up as a favorite Sopranos character and partake in a hearty five-course meal, wine and all. Prizes will be awarded to the best costume and the best Soprano look-a-like. Tickets must be purchased in advance for $55 per couple and $30 per individual. Papa Joe’s Kitchen is at 3314 S. McCarran Blvd. Call 828-0105.
