Went in to AJ's last night to inquire whether Sal would be singing since it's Thursday. Answer no. Here's how it might have gone down at the closing:
Henry Huang: Well, here' s the check. Five million as promised.
Sal: Thanks, but there is one item of business on the table.
Huang: The pizzeria, we'll keep it open for the time being. You're right, it's very successful.
Sal: No, that that. You know, Thursday nights?
Huang: Thursday nights. . . Oh no, Sal, not that again.
Sal: People love it! It's an institution.
Huang: Okay, how about you get to keep the building and sing all you want, and I keep the $5 million.
Sal: Well, I guess there's always Karoke at the Irish Cottage.
