In case you hadn't heard, Tom Tom was just named the best bar in Southern California — and everyone is celebrating. Lisa Vanderpump called the honor an auspicious symbol as she prepares to open her new Las Vegas venue. And despite the challenges to their longtime friendship, Kyle Richards called the acknowledgement a "very well deserved" one for Lisa. Vanderpump Rules pal Katie Maloney-Schwartz called it "high praise" even to be nominated.
Now, Tom Schwartz is weighing in, too. In a lengthy and revealing Instagram post, he said he felt "proud, humbled, and honored" to be a part of Tom Tom. "It’s awesome being part of such a special project. There was nothing, now there’s something. That’s so cool to me."
In addition to all the talent involved in the project — not least, seasoned restaurant mogul Lisa — Tom thinks he has a pretty good idea about one factor that guaranteed Tom Tom's inevitable success.
His caption continued, "Being surrounded by so many talented people has been inspiring to say the least. They have years of mastery and experience but the ace in the hole was burying my lucky agate in the walls mid construction. That sealed the deal."
So now you know. But next time you're at Tom Tom, please stick to the cauliflower wings, and don't go chiseling into the walls, OK?
