News & Gossip – Week of 11/9/09

Brian Pieri, the owner of The StoneRose Restaurant and last week’s Conshohocken Celebrity, and Arthur Kade, “worldwide celebrity and rising actor,” were co-workers at American Express in Conshohocken prior to their both pursuing other ventures.  Kade stopped into The StoneRose last week while Pieri wasn’t there and enjoyed lunch with a few friends.  He decided to autograph a menu for Pieri, which he predicted would be framed and hung behind the bar.  When Pieri returned and discovered the autographed menu, he promptly mailed it back to Kade.

In the video, Kade compares his journey to Pieri, but seems to believe his success wearing tight t-shirts and overusing hair product is more of an achievement that opening a restaurant.
