NFL Star Chad Ochocinco treated 200 of his fans to an expensive dinner with drinks at Sylvia’s Restaurant in New York.
New England Patriots wide receiver Ochocinco and fiancée of “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada looked to his three million followers on Twitter when offering up the dinner date invites.
“1st 200 people at Sylvia’s Restaurant by 7 pm in Harlem. Leave ya money/credit cards at home. I got you this time,” tweeted Ochocinco.
Reportedly, it didn’t take long before the place was packed. Sylvia’s restaurant tweeted: ”The line for ochocinco is wrapping around the corner!!”
Sources say the total bill came to $7,914.
Trenness Woods-Black, the granddaughter of Sylvia Woods from whom the restaurant got its name, dished to New York magazine what they prepared for the dinner. “We served our most popular items,” she said. “Barbecue ribs, fried chicken, mac and cheese, corn bread, iced tea, cocktails.”
Ochocinco has since tweeted, “Now I’ve 200 new friends, even better 200 new friends have my phone number. Now that sh** is #Epic or #Crazy.” Hours later, he complained, “I gave 200 people my number and only 13 people have texted me. That’s rhino drpppings!!! I gave you my number to use it f**kers, let’s go.”
