Action Bronson turns 32-years-old today. And to celebrate this momentous occasion, the Queens-bred rapper is teaming up with his longtime friend Mario Batali to sling pies at the orange Croc-rocking chef’s Otto Enoteca e Pizzeria near Washington Square Park on Monday.
For $45, fans will be able to dine on world-class ‘za crafted by Bam Bam Baklava, as well as an assortment of other dishes from Molto Mario and his staff. $10 of each ticket sale will go to the Food Bank for New York City, and the birthday bash also includes a sneak preview of an upcoming episode of Moltissimo, Batali’s new series on Vice’s Munchies.
“To celebrate my life I’m making some firrrrrrrre fucking pizzas,” Bronson wrote on Instagram this week, shouting out his “BFF” Batali for helping with the festivities.
“We’ve kind of become like old friends in a matter of a year-and-a-half,” Batali said. “I’m always watching and seeing what he’s doing. I ask him what he’s finding interesting. He talks to me about kind of the tradition and the culture of the chef world.”
On Monday, Batali wished Bronson a happy birthday on Instagram, calling the F*ck, That’s Delicious host a “hero among men.”
