Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie Marries Tina Lai From Vietnam Restaurant


Fabulously wealthy Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie got married over the weekend. And if you’re thinking, “Gee, that sure looks like the girl who seated me at Vietnam the last time I was there,” that’s because it was her.

The new Mrs. Lurie is Tina Lai, 39, sister of Benny Lai, who owns Vietnam in Chinatown and West Philadelphia’s Vietnam Cafe, Fu Wah Deli and the underrated Grill Fish. She was frequently found behind the register at the deli, although I’m guessing she’ll be spending much more time in this lovely little home. Jeffrey Lurie, who divorced wife Christina in 2012, is 61-years-old and ranked 1,075 on the Forbes Billionaires list.

Can we get some BBQ Platters and Flaming Volcanoes at the Linc? Please?
