With Woody Allen. He bought me a drink. I was sitting at the next table to his in Elaine’s in New York. Someone in my party mistakenly took Woody’s very expensive bottle of wine out of the ice bucket, which was right next to ours, and filled my glass before realizing he had picked up the wrong bottle. So Woody bought me a drink — he just didn’t know it. Woody if you’re reading this — send me the bill.
