Ten Years Later, Lost Purse Shows Up Intact in Blueberry Hill Bathroom Ceiling

"The very fact that he was writing something to me on my wall was suspicious," Lorre says. "I mean, he's a great guy, but we're not really that close."
She tried to convince herself Early's message was spam, but she found herself calling Blueberry Hill anyway.
"I was like, 'This is the weirdest phone call you're going to get,'" and asked if he had found her ten-year-old bag. "The guy said, 'Yeah, we have it right here,'" Lorre says.
One Blueberry Hill staffer asked Lorre if she hid it in the ceiling because the restaurant doesn't have a coat check.
"I wish I was that brilliant," Lorre says. "Who does that? Who gives a shit that Blueberry Hill doesn't have a coat check? It's not a steak house."
Note: When she lived in St. Louis, Lorre wrote for the Riverfront Times as a restaurant critic.
