He Got Game--and the Octopus
December 20, 2016
Last Thursday evening, Denzel Washington came into PERBACCO for dinner with the cast of Fences (Jovan Adepo, Mykelti Williamson, Stephen Henderson) and Constanza Romero, the widow of the writer of the play. The film was being premiered at the Curran Theatre, and the group came in to quickly eat while the audience watched the film, and then needed to return to the Curran for Q&A.
One cute happening: there was a private event in the room behind where they were seated. Once Denzel noticed that the guests were trying to take pictures, he went into the room and chatted for a while. I’m also told he enjoyed the octopus and had the Raviora as a main course. No alcohol for him—he ordered a regular Coke.
