From Anna:

"Vinnie and I met at Sullivan's Steakhouse where we both worked almost 5 years ago now. He was a manager and I was a hostess. Fun fact - managers weren't allowed to fraternize with staff so we dated in secret for a few months!  For our first date, actually went dancing at this bar where a lot of older people went because we knew we wouldn't see anyone we knew. We had so much fun- they had an oldies band and we danced all night!"
