Talk of Titans

Restaurant mogul Drew Nieporent is pals with local celeb/occasional restaurateur Francis Ford Coppola and let's just say their phone conversations are different from the rest of ours: "'Francis,' as Nieporent was calling him, was concerned at the time that he 'had to get out of Rubicon,' because of some potential conflict with his winery ... The good news was, 'Francis has somebody to take his place. George Lucas!' - none other than the director of Star Wars. Tremble says he heard Nieporent saying 'George Lucas? Have you checked him out? Does he have money?'" [SH]
