Mike Modano and his fiance, Willa Ford, are at Jimmy’s Food Store as I type. They walked in just as my husband and I were getting ready to leave, and both looked as genetically blessed as ever. For those of you who don’t know, Ford is known for her stints with Dancing With the Stars and the Pussycat Dolls, and apparently recorded some songs on her own, none of which I’m sure I’ve ever heard (until I added the link attached to her name, and now my ears are bleeding). It’s not every day you encounter a celebrity at lunch. Still, it says a lot about Jimmy’s that my muffaletta was the highlight of my lunch hour, and not the Modano/Ford combo.
