2012_pat_la_frieda_123.jpgCelebrity butcher Pat LaFrieda recounts some run-ins with the mob and nasty competitors, in his new book Meat, which drops September 2. One competitor threatened to kill LaFrieda for taking his business, but complained "there are too many guys in white coats walking around here. We'd have to shoot five or six of 'em before we got to the right guy." LaFrieda responded: "When the shooters come, tell them to look for the guy in the blue coat. That's the color I'll be wearing." He still wears that coat. [NYP]
