Cast members from 1993's "A Bronx Tale" will reunite with Chazz Palminteri at Chazz: A Bronx Original on Monday night for a special fundraising happy hour.
"A Bronx Tale" was the movie adaptation of Palminteri's one-man stage show of the same name. Almost 20 years later, Palminteri's love affair with his native borough would in part inspire the Inner Harbor restaurant that bears his name.
Guests at Monday's happy hour will meet cast members from the movie, along with other Baltimore celebrities and sports figures who are helping the restaurant launch a new charitable fundraising campaign for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.
The cast of "A Bronx Tale" included Joe Pesci and Palminteri's friend Robert De Niro, who also directed the movie. It was not certain whether either of those actors would be in attendance.
The restaurant's full menu will be available to guests.
Chazz: A Bronx Original opened in June 2011 in the Harbor East development in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. For more information about A Bronx Tale Happy Hour, or to make reservations, call the restaurant at 410-522-5511.
