EMINEM BRINGING MOM’S SPAGHETTI TO LOS ANGELES FOR ‘BIG GAME’ WEEKEND
Written by torresanz on February 9, 2022
Eminem is set to perform at the Super Bowl alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar on Sunday (February 13), but music isn’t the only thing on his agenda. For a limited time, he’s bringing his Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant to the city in the form of a pop-up shop in Downtown L.A.
According to TMZ, Mom’s Spaghetti will be located at Uncle Paulie’s Deli (820 S. Spring St) and available between Wednesday (February 9) and Monday (February 14), with the option to order in store or delivery via Postmates (free delivery for orders over $20). The menu includes pasta, beef and vegan meatballs, a spaghetti sandwich, garlic bread and more.
“It’s not the kind of pasta you’d expect if your grandma came from Italy on a boat,” Mom’s Spaghetti co-owner Curt Catallo said in a statement. “It’s more like the spaghetti you’d know if your mom came from Michigan on a bus.”
Postmates is also holding a sweepstake to win jars of Mom’s Spaghetti’s sauce, signed by Eminem himself.
Eminem opened the original Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant — named after his famous “Lose Yourself” lyric — in his hometown of Detroit in September.
“In ‘Lose Yourself,’ I was saying it from the perspective of Jimmy Smith Jr., the character I was playing in [8 Mile],” Em explained on Shade 45 in September. “[Spaghetti sandwich] is definitely some white trash shit. I hate the tangy zip of Miracle Whip, but spaghetti, that is very white trash. But I still eat it today.”
He added, “We need to do mac and cheese. No one’s gonna say no to mac and cheese. But it’s gotta be the really cheap kind, ‘cause I’m telling you, that’s the best kind. Four-foot dollar mac and cheese! I should sit at home and get some mac and cheese for a dollar, I’m sure they still sell them, and make it to my liking. And then give the recipe to Paul [Rosenberg] so he can make money off it.”
Super Bowl LVI will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, with the Los Angeles Rams taking on the Cincinnati Bengals. In addition to Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, the halftime show is set to include performances from deaf rappers Sean Forbes and Warren “Wawa” Snipe.
