National plug for Andiamo, Warren

Watching the “Late Night with David Letterman” show on TV on Friday night (yes, my life is that boring), I was startled to hear the city of Warren and Andiamo’s suddenly thrown into the spotlight.
Letterman introduces his first guest, Regis Philbin, adding that Regis will appear Oct. 25 and 26 at "the Andiamo Celebrity Showroom in Warren, Michigan,” which generates some audience laughter after a comedic pause by Letterman.
“There’s nothing wrong with that gig, OK?” Letterman tells the crowd in his trademark sarcastic tone, drawing more laughter.
Regis enters the stage, sits down and the first thing he says is, “Did I hear snickers after you said, ‘The Andiamo’s?’”
“No, no, no, no, no,” Letterman replies.
“Don’t fool with those guys,” Regis mockingly cautions.
“What guys?” Letterman says.
“Andiamo guys,” Regis answers.
“What does that mean exactly?” Letterman cracks.
“It’s a great showplace,” Regis counters.
“And Warren, Michigan?” Letterman says.
Regis answers, “You see, it’s not in Detroit. It’s just outside of Detroit.”
“All roads lead to Warren,” Letterman concludes, and the pair move on to a new topic.
Andiamo owner Joe Vicari can't be displeased with that free national attention.
