Bel Paese’s Last Stand

As we noted earlier this week, Bel Paese–Hummerville’s lone red sauce joint in its tiny downtown district–has shut its doors for good.

Yet Bel Paese seems to be putting up a fight. With fierce winds battering the area the last few days, the giant For Rent sign that hung from Bel Paese’s facade has fallen down. All that remained was a smaller sign saying “Call John Williams,” as if Williams was some gigolo, or had some nifty Star Wars theme music to sell you.

Its tattered American and Italian flags whipping in the winds, Bel Paese seemed to say, I’m not going down with a fight, John Williams be damned–just you try to pry this farfalle and fusilli out of my cold dead hands.

Stay tuned.
